Nicely handled, but there's no need to spout about it...Wink

(That groaning you can hear in the background is Kilroy reacting to my comment)

Beautifully negative/positive. It really needs the top of that arc, but my little bit of Newcastle graffiti is joining the lotus and Kilroy here.

Quote: It really needs the top of that arc,

We see things differently. The composition was carefully considered down to the last pixel, perhaps even more so than usual.
Including the top of the arc creates a true negative space ( which is to say a negative space created by virtue of an encompassing positive space ) which completely changes the composition, removing a tension and drawing the eye in a way that I don't want.

But it would balance the arc on the right. I am Libran, I crave balance... Tongue

Well chosen framing of these sensual shapes and excellent mono work as is your usual.

Splendid curves and contrasting tones, combined with some very subtle lighting and excellent mono conversion. I like the composition as it is, completing the arc (as you say) would change the whole image. Instant award.

you can complete the arc but then then it would take away the sense of weightlessness..

An intriguing abstract. I like the yin/yang balance it achieves.

I see a baby swan with it's black swan mother. Coming out of the reeds. Beautiful lights and darks.
