Good Morning to you all at ePz.

Firstly tank you all for your wonderful comments and votes following yesterdays images of the wind swept beach at Worthing. A special mention going to Moira for her most valuable tips of composition.

Todays image is a still life made up of only two components. I really wanted to include a third to item to address the balance however I rather liked the simplicity.

I hope that you all have a great day whatever you get up too.

For me its all about taking things easy.

Regards as always Nathan GrinGrinGrin

A captivating timeless image Nathan of this lovely bear and bugle. The mono image reveals so many textures - the more you look the more you see! I would love this on my wall...no doubt this bear has many stories to tell! In my opinion in this instance the two components are just perfect...'less' is quite often 'more'! Enjoy your day.
