I am not sure if I have posted this or not, if so it was long ago, seeing bahadirs photo reminded me I had this.

This shot is just great, Bob! One can hardly imagine that barbed wire could become such an aesthetical object as in your photo. I would again suggest a slight cropping off from the top and the bottom, as well, to accentuate the extending parallel of the barbed wire, landscape and the sky. I also think incresing the contrast by 8-9% could boost the dramatic balance of the elements in the image.

Thank you again bahadir, I like the crop, I increased the contrast 9 %, it does accentuate the line of wire, a improvement I think! I remember composing this shot so that the middle barb would have the clear sky behind it, this is about the time I started putting some thought into my photos instead of just shooting and hoping to get something.

What a terrific shot, Bob. It's amazing how a single wire can create such a dramatic effect on the overall mood of the photo. The fact that the wire is completely on focus, it creates some sort of barrier separating us from the wide open. Awesome!!!
