Have a good week - and if you are taking children to school make sure you shut the school gates!!!
For those of you who are concerned that children were in danger in the taking of this photo, it is actually a gate within the playground SmileSmile

Super shadow and good against that naturally textured base.
And further to your tip about bees not being able to see red, I stocked my garden over the weekend with lots of yellow, white and orange flowers just in case they come. Smile

I like this a lot. Interesting split tone kind of look. Lovely textures and great counterpoint with the rounded ends of the railings and that solid square block of the latch.....and a fine diagonal comp. Could you get some texture in the the topleft triangle? Anyways...well seen and well done.
regards Phil.

Interesting suggestion Phil.
Its strange - its a straight photo and my eye didn't see the need for adding a texture, because I know that its a plant box - but when its a digitally manipulated image I seem to work for hours on getting it right WinkWinkWinkWink
I'm so pleased that you mentioned it because it had not struck me at all SmileSmile
