Between man and nature, light and dark and between verticals and horizontals.

This is a photo where your choice of descriptive text/title actually seems to confuse me, or detract from the image a little. I get no sense of balance whatsoever from this.

I kinda like it, though. It's pretty much about texture, I think, and I am not quite sure what to look at. This isn't as upsetting a feature as it is in some images, though. It's almost but not quite soothing for me.

The area of white, nearly blown out, sand on the right bothers me a trifle. Not sure why. It might be a little too small, or too bright?

Sorry, Chris, but it seems to me it's not abstract enough to be an abstraction, and as a straight photograph of a fence in the sand there's not enough there to be interesting. Maybe more cropping? (But best done on the camera, not as an afterthought. . .)

More cropping? Are you feeling OK, Russ?  ;)
