Natural Fingers

Day 4 of my series from the garden...

June's Challenge - "In my kitchen" - entries by June 30th
Brief again simple...so simple that I'm not going to limit it all, I'll be a little more generous with 'relevance' scores...but maybe harsher elsewhere  ;)

Crisp, lush, verdant. Simple yet unusual composition. A likey.
BeakerSt: Cheers, pleased you like it.

I'm not as big a fan on negative space as you are Simon, but this really works for me because of the faint 'fingers' on the left. Soothing tones too.
BeakerSt: I can appreciate it may not be to everyone's taste, I do like negative space. smile

Really, really nice. Unlike Steve, I'm a great fan of negative space. Steve's right, of course, about the blurred shapes behind, so I guess we're both happy.
BeakerSt: Thanks Jim, I do like negative space and try to push the limits a bit. wink The shapes in the background were intended to be complimentary so as it wasn't just hanging in space.

Hi Simon. Negative space is there to be used and if done properly as in this photo, is very good. Too many people do not pay enough attention though and that is while I feel it gets "bad publicity"!! Lovely shot. Many regards, Neil.
BeakerSt: Cheers Neil, we all have our favoured styles. There was a photo I saw yesterday on SC with a butterfly on a flower way over on the left and just a vast blue sky to the right. It conveyed a very strong message of freedom and simplicity to so it worked very well imho. Not to everyone's taste though so I appreciate your thoughts. Composition is the key.

PS. Maybe it is time for me to have a go at the "BeakerSt challenge"
BeakerSt: I was thinking the same thing... wink I await your entry, still plenty of time.
Great shot, simple, crisp and very effective. (:o)
BeakerSt: Thanks Rosalyn, pleased you like it.
I think...yes...definitely another likey.
BeakerSt: You're too kind. Thanks

Really nice Simon. Simple, colourful, & with great composition.

Scorchio!
BeakerSt: Cheers Andy, I'm starting to think you're biased or affected by country air.
