Very well seen indeed, as usual, Moira!
I love that tattered paper, curling at the edges.

An extremely well composed and observed piece, in which you have captured and harnessed the wonderful detail, colour and pin sharp shadow so very well.

This has a very menacing, apocalyptic feeling. Most interesting.

Like the rusty nail or screw, seems like it is holding everything together. Great light........Sandy
