Knot and wood

By morpheus1955  
One from the other day, this is actually one of the supports for a yacht that is being sorted out ready for the new season, the rope is attached to the tarpaulin , and it just took my fancy Smile

Thank you as always for all your C&C's very much appreciated.

Thanks for taking the time to look.

I like this a lot Hugh. Lovely texture and detail, and in my opinion, excellent composition, with both symmetry and balance.

Superb detail and textures here, Hugh, the strong side lighting enhancing these effects so well.

'Mornin' Hugh.' You have focused superbly on this capture, with excellent 'light & shadow play,' color, tones, and textures. I feel that your photograph could be improved upon by several actions. A 'crop of the image frame,'...from the left of 3-4 centimeters, would align the focal point, more in the 'sweet thirds position,' of the image frame. I think that the viewers eye would more easily flow into the image, as I really feel that the symmetry in this crop, hinders this photographic element. Also, in combination, I would extend more of the image frame from the top(if you have it), for another 2-3 inches. This would render the image in a more 'portrait crop orientation,' & would add the the relocation of the focal point,...'into the sweet spot.' Hopefully, You understand my constructive point, as from my point of view. It is only my thoughts on making your superb capture, an even better picture. Have a wonderful 'fair weather Weekend o'er the Pond.'

I think it is perfect Hugh and I am afraid I can not agree with Lex Your capture is beautifully balanced.

Unusual to see a square crop from you, Hugh, and rarer still to see one with an almost central divide. It works extremely well, whatever the pundits might say. The contrast between the vertical grain in the wood and the horizontal strands in the rope comes across best on the left; the right-hand panel is altogether less sunny and more mysterious with its strong shadow. It's almost entirely monochrome, too. A strong semi-abstract with excellent detail.
