Pebbles & Wood

By marshfam19
Thank you for taking the time to look at my image and the kind comments and votes on yesterdays image.

Today's upload is what the title says, I really liked the wood texture and thought it worked well in mono. Please let me know what you think.

Thanks again for looking.

You found an interesting subject, Mary, with good texture, set against the surrounding pebbles with their own interesting shapes and textures. The wooden bollard (I'm sure it used to be one, anyway) is nicely focused.
It's hard to say if mono works better without seeing the original colour version, but mono does tend to bring out texture and form better.
The trouble with white shells is that they reflect the light so easily, and you will notice that they are burnt out in some areas, as are some of the background stones. You were shooting around mid-day when the light can be harsh.
The randomness of the stones and shells on top of the bollard look natural, as if they were just like that when you found them. Did you consider placing extra or alternative shells or stones on it? I know I would have done. One large dominant shell or stone would have given you a focal point and you could have focused on that.
