I was shooting more shots of the historic rock walls by my house when I noticed that the barbed-wire in the fence might make an interesting subject. soooo.......

Here there is a hint of the rock wall in the background.

Hi smac,
Lovely picture,especially#1 & #2 are great,Texture of barb wire comes out well and blended very nicely with blurred green background.
One small thing that left & right side of the wire is little blured(May be a DOF problem) needs to be taken care of..

Thanks, yes it is a DOF thing. I am working on it. That was a big tangle of wire, sticking out in all directions. My macro lens didn't want to get it all in focus and still keep the nice bokeh in the background. Notice how I blamed the lens not the impecable skill of the photographer. :G Thanks for your comments, they are appreciated.

Last September I found some barbed wire encased in an large toppled round piece of wood; perhaps it had been a gate post or a tree had been used for a fence post. Similar problem, though, in that my lens didn't perform well either.:lol: The colors and depth of your catch are good!

An interesting idea, Smac.Another way to play with the barbed wire I thought of is to silhouette the wire so that it blends with the background and creats further interesting effect.
