No Hot Air

By woolybill1
Another image from Moustiers-les-Saintes-Maries, spotted across the gash in the precipice mentioned last time . I rather like the lines they are mostly shadows, indicating the fine weather we enjoyed that day.

Version 1: 112mm, 1/800th sec. @ f10;
Version 2: 200mm, 1'500th sec. @ f10; ISO 200.

Cables and wires proliferate even more on the Continent than in our own criss crossed country. Makes a nice image though with the shadows as well.

As soon as I saw this I thought pictures with a picture then saw you had isolated the cage and its shadow which IMO makes the stronger of the two images. I also think isolating the green shutters would make a strong image. Very good observation here.

Fascinating captures Bill, like the first they looked like baloons...

Super image, full of texture and colour and I do like the way the wires dissect the image.

Lovely pair of images. Delicious ...dare I say....rusty wall tones! I'm glad you've done V2, think it's my favourite.
Although I agree with Albert the shutters would have been good in isolation with a nice bit of wall too.

Brilliant shot Bill, with that beautiful composition and the wonderful colours and shadows. I think the colour of the door is essential, so V1 for me.

Fabulous work Bill, just love version two which looks like two Montgolfiers (check spelling).

Nice takes.

You have made a work of art out of a mundane subject. I agree with Ollie, a lot of folks would have passed this by. Fine work.

I would have guessed imediately # 1 was taken in France and has a certain charm about it but my preference is for #2

V1 works for me, the doors add a sense of size to the image where as V2 has you guessing.
