Ha ha, Hards, now your chalkboarding photos!

Now that you point it out, Hards, the photo could use a little dodging and burning.

The photo looks too squarely cropped.

Prefer it to be longer (4x6) to follow the contour of the reeds.

Nice photo though.

yah, that balance between light and dark robs that shot of its appeal.

square format (to stop the time) and B&W here was my choice to show ideogramm and geometric lines
I can still see details in the darker part , no 0 or 255 in the photo

thank you for your comments

I like the art to let this reed look like bamboo.
The shadows give me a faint impression of japanese signs - they have to be dark!
The contrast is ok for this object TMO.
I have never used the square format, but this is perfect for such a minimalistic picture.
The framing adds to this stop signal.

Do we have members from asia in this forum?

yes panoramic format is good for telling a story
square format good for showing something like a symbol, out of the time, fixed or dead

generally we are using a format between square and panoramic which is good for all
in the present case it is supposed to be a sign, a symbol
geometric lines ideogramms

and i generally dont like strong contrasts

but all comments are welcome of course , i am just explainig my choice

Yes, I have seen a couple of members from Asia but they are irregular. Keep posting.
