A nice marriage of organic and inorganic shapes, textures and materials...

Here are some more from my monochrome photo library.

Thanks for sharing your work, folks!

Here are a couple of images Marcia shot with her cell phone back in March - both taken at Butchart Gardens (I pushed them around a little in LR4)

Marcia's second one is quite spectacular!

Whilst 'pushing them around' you might have taken off the gnome's hat!

I can imagine a really nice B&W reworking of that second shot, with a fairly strong vignetting to really pick out the tree

Thanks, folks!  I think the gnome was camera shy and took it on the lam, Rob.  Bill, I hadn't considered B&W but it might be worth it.

Love the last one Holger. It has such a dynamic feel to it.

Lovely shot of the meadow - the light just shows one everything that is good about it.

Indeed!  Russ would disagree  ;) but I'd remove about 1/4 of the foreground off the bottom as I don't think the green grassy area adds much but I like the stalks that fall behind that.

A couple of recent works.  The top one is a bit of cell phone camera fun.  I did a similar one a while back of a different garry oak, and the scene here suggested a similar treatment.

The bottom one is from a local park that I've been meaning to visit for a while.  We were there yesterday.  It's not a great image, but the white flowers belong to what is by far the largest rhododendron I've ever seen.  By comparison, the fence is about 3' 6" (just over 1 metre).  Truth be told this isn't one tree but about six or seven.  Still, it's quite impressive.

I like the top one; it's a treatment that makes photography something more than just a record of what's there and, better, makes it something twice as interesting. Oh well, it's still early... but I do like the photograph!

The top one is interesting. If you rotate 90 degrees clockwise, it seems you are about to be in a gunfight....draw... ;)

How odd: I just followed your instructions, and what I saw was a suspender belt.

Are you sure you're not on sedatives or, more damaging yet, beta-blockers?
