Nicely-toned & well-composed low light macro still life, Krystal. Excellent color, tones, & clarity seen.

This one is particularly difficult for me to comment on; the point of reference is not universally distributive. I am unable to "perceive" it as "gold." Because I suffer from a combination of color blindness; the predominant one being red-green; it's also virtually impossible for me to distinguish blue from purple. With this image, the closest that I am able to articulate its "essence" -- as I see it -- is that it is "flaxen;" that is all that I can see. Nature -- in her wisdom -- tends to distribute various properties among the human population (and many, many others, of course), in such a way that the essential conservation , and continuation of the majority is virtually assured. With one constant caveat. There are various "anomalies" that are distributed (usually in widely distributed "discontinuities," that often account for less than ten percent of a given population -- sexual orientation, handedness, colorblindness, etc., (common among human beings) that are never seen fit to be "randomly" extinguished by nature herself, but are -- all the same -- invariably viewed as a "point of departure," by the vast majority of human beings, who do not share (or understand these "anomalies.) The single most dangerous "deviant" forms's of assessing each other -- as I view it -- is our aberrant, and utterly intractable tendency towards "tribalism." Ironic, that it is our essentially "blind" (utterly essential) instinct for survival, that will almost certainly be the ultimate catalyst for our collective destruction, strikes me as sublimely ironic.

Krystal, would you ever have thought that such a splendid image -- that you produced, for sheer love of beauty -- could possibly arouse such an inexcusable political rant, on my part? I -- personally -- would not have thought so. (This does not, in any way, diminish the beauty of your work, of course.) It's just a commentary on my inability to avoid attempting to accord some semblance of an intrinsic relationship between events and processes that are not at all linked in any concrete, rational perception of reality.

Dylan, I would love to answer your comment but not in a public forum. I will have to wait 3 more days before my message link is turned on. I am experimenting with images and ideas, which gives me great pleasure. Not every image will be notable, in fact most will pass unnoticed. If you are not able to see the subtle shades of gold, so be it. You will see silver gray hues of platinum. Some images have mass appeal, others lie dormant until one day someone stumbles upon it and finds favour in its form. I know you found favour in Ansel Adams work and wrote eloquently about it. Often, one image is "enough" to safisfy (for a time being). A collection is a process. If I "aroused" anything, thats good.

This colour produces a very dramatic image, Krystal, enhancing the light, which in turn enhances the shadows and reflections. Beautiful work again and a beautiful capture.
Take care....Pauline

What happened to the votes? I see they changed the format and as a result the votes were wiped out while the comments remain. I noticed some of the paying members like NeilWigan also lost their votes on their pf. Put those votes back, each comment is equal to a vote.
