"The Wall"

By RonnieAG
I rather like the different textures and tones created by the campanula sprouting from crevices in this old wall.

My thanks to all for the kind remarks on Old and New, and with special thanks to Richard {DicksPics} for his User Award which was welcome as it was unexpected.

Ronnie.

A delightful image Ronnie with those lovely little flowers, plants and moss creating a patchwork on the wall.
We were over in Pollok Country Park tonight on a Portrait Shoot with the Camera Club.
The light was lovely and you are blessed with it on your doorstep.

Wonderful the way nature adapts to its suroundings. And this stone work makes a great backdrop for these small delicate flowers. Lovely image Ronnie.

Agree with you Ronnie; my first thought was the softness of the flora against the hardness of the rock.
Thanks for your suggestion on the viola manipulation - stored in memory and will be put to use sometime soon.Smile

Spot on with the exposure and lovely colour and texture, Ronnie, and it's clear you took time working out the best crop, the shapes and joins make and excellent, balanced composition.

A wonderful image Ronnie, the hard detail of the stone and the soft colouring and textures of the flower make an ideal contrast, well spotted and captured.

Your right, Dave, took ages working out what to take for best and then crop to the square format.
