Going Solo

At the far end of our garden a lone twig rises from the ivy on the fence. Taken yesterday; much the same today.

300mm, 1/200th sec. @ f5.6, ISO 500 +1.3 E.V.

Minimalism at its very best IMHO. I think it would be superb blown up huge and on a wall.

Very simple and effective, a modern image if you like, would look great on a wall which Hugh has already said. - gary

Less is more Bill. I can see you poking the telephoto out of a gap in the patio doors, firing off a couple of shots and then wisely retreating to the warm.

watcha Bill,
excellent bit of minimalism, almost sumi-e, might be worth a B&W.

Tremendous Bill. It takes a good eye to make a photograph out of that but you managed perfectly well.

V2 works well for me Bill, nicely composed too.

I like the composition Bill and shallow dof. No1 as a preference.

Well you know how much I love mono, but I found my preference for v1 rather quickly here. I like the layers of pale blues and whites, rather than the very stark white "top" layer in v2 (you seem to have lost some definition there in the conversion).
Might I also add that this must be viewed large - very Zen and minimalistic.

The simplicity conveys serenity so well Bill, lovely image, Adrian

Minimalistic, but with great effect. I love V2 with even less detail.
