This is much more than a casual pick. It's a great story about time, past, and the spiritual mystery that surround certain objects. I love photos, like this one, that tell stories.
A bonus: perfect, irrational proportions.

Default The Fork:Mood and Drama in a Single Photo!

A great photo from the G-1, Donna-

I really like it a lot. As Ordo noted, there is has a lot of ambiance and feeling to that photo. Perhaps it is just me, but might it not look a bit more dramatic if the photo was cropped to match the fork?

Take a look and thank you for allowing me to "adjust" your great photo a bit, to show you this change.

Thanks a lot, Donna-

I was very fearful that I might be seriously treading on your creative juices. Thanks for being so responsive.

I don't really like the cropping. Now the mystery of the blurred background is lost and the pick is much more conventional.

Very nice, Donna. Although I like both versions, I agree with Ordo...the full image had something else to offer besides the fork.
