Default Repetition in nature (trees)

I took this shot this morning for the shoot out.

Normally I would not pick this type of subject as I find the number of parallel sharp lines in the frame almost hurts my eyes. But since my goal was to establish repetition I instead chose to crop the photo to accentuate the number of parallel lines which were further sharpened by the strong side lighting of the rising sun.

Once I started looking at the results I began to really like them. They're almost overpowering to my eyes where I can't focus on the leaves or any one trunk but instead am forced to take it all in at once (or idk maybe my meds are kicking in?).

thoughts and comments appreciated!


well after that long winded intro... These small trees (saplings) are on the edge of a field and therefore all are bending to the light.

Just to see how it looked I did straighten them up to be vertical in the frame. Not sure which I like better, leaning towards the actual orientation.

I like the original. I also like the one fallen tree.... Pattern disorganization.

vsch1,

thank you I agree the fallen tree does add to it, but before you mentioned it I never really noticed it was there.
