Today the thunderstorm started before I headed out to shoot, so I'll post a couple of more pairs from yesterday's outing at the botanical garden. Paths over bridges are always inviting

Very nice shot, Paul. It seems unusual to me to see a stone deck with wood railings. Around here, there are stone bridges but the entire structure, deck and railing, is constructed of stone.

Very nice again, Paul. I think I like the first one best.

Paul,

Agree with Patty, the first shot is perceptually better, perhaps because it appears to be "natural" while the second encompasses a manmade stone setting. Just rambling on.

Love the first shot. It think it is the metal railings that does the second in a bit. Wood and stone are both natural and kind of go together but that wrought iron railing just seems a bit out of place. I also think the ground and wood being wet in the first photo helps them blend together in a more subtle way.

Cheers,
Bill

Very nice contrast...the stone and woodwork and the deep green foliage.
