Default Grasshead - simple

Lately in my photography, I've been trying to appreciate the beauty of simplicity, in even the most common of things.

Here is one example. A simple head of grass (gone to seed, as we approach summer). Basically 20% of my lawn in my back garden is now in seed.

The dark background is my fence (on the west - in shadow / shade) - with the grass head being caught by a late afternoon sunray.

Does it work for you?

Paul

The kind of picture that makes me go ooohhhh, nice. Yup does it for me. A simple head of grass, but Id call it a wall hanger. Welcome back and thanks for what you've shown us Paul.

Definitely works, I've tried something similar any number of times and have never succeeded as nicely as this one. This picture is inspiring to me.

Dear Friends

Thanks for your very kind and highly valued feedback. It is always good to have constructive comments, and I mean that for positive as well as instructive views.

Sorry for the delay in acknowledging your replies... I was interstate (Victoria, Australia) for a long (long, long) weekend, and not on the web during that time. :-)

Again, many thanks. Hope to share more again soon.

Paul
