lavender & pears . . .

DULCIE (Danville, CA, United States) on 11 September 2011 in Abstract & Conceptual.

I changed this image, removed the "grunge" edges and so, hopefully, the texture that distracted some viewers. It's lost a little of its pizazz, but there will be other photos, other days......:-)

BTW, I always appreciate it SO MUCH when any of you tell me what could work better in my photos. Thank you !!

Your critique of my photos is most appreciated. . . . .

That's a very beautiful treatment of a nice simple still life Dulcie. My only reservation is the distressed framing which, to my mind, distracts the eye from the picture, pulling you away from the centre of interest.

@grouser: Thanks for your comment. I changed the photo, removed the distracting edge, and re-posted it ! I'm glad for your input. Thanks very much ! :-)

I think I agree with Grouser, this might have been stronger if everything faded out to solid black. Love the green cast across the image which reflects the crisp glassware.

Where's the grunge? ;-) Actually, this looks like a cool science experiment. We always have some of those going at our house.
