It’s interesting to me that I was so mistaken about the relative effect of the texture permitted on the pads and background! Simply testimony to your mastery of the subtleties of uses of texture! I’ll just have to pay closer attention to whole “texture-affected” genre of imagery!
Via this image, Min, you just may yet get a new convert to the technique!
Many thanks for so gently and persuasively expanding my consciousness, awareness, and perceptions concerning texture use!

You oughta try it, for some of us it becomes addictive. There are endless ways texture can be used, and of course endless sources of textures to be utilized. In the lily pad image, I only left a trace of the Monet texture on the lily pads because it would have fought with the strong texture of the lily pads themselves. I only left the trace to help with blending. I wanted most of it to show in the water. Most texture nuts I know use it similarly in most kinds of images, more heavily in the background, and more lightly over the subject. But as everywhere, each image is different. Some of my more stylized images have texture more heavily applied throughout.

This Week's Theme - Your Home

Well, you know what I consider home. I took this one early Friday morning from the hayfield. This is home, and has been since I was born. It's where my mother was born, the home my grandparents built when they married in 1907. I am in the process of applying for the National Register of Historic Places, having cleared the initial process of state endorsement this summer. I will probably include this photo in the application portfolio which has been fun to shoot and edit. I'm applying in the categories of architecture and agriculture, and this is one of the images that will tie the two together in the current era. Since all we grow for use other than our own now is the hay.

Thanks. It's pretty straightforward but I tried to dress it up just a touch.

Hi,Min ,
I find this image exceptionally well composed to emphasize depth- not only physical depth of the scene as captured, but complementary to the temporal depth of that site in your family back-story!
I very much admire your use of the absolute center of the end of the rolled big round bale as your strong lower right foreground reference point- the centrifugal expansion of the layers of that bale enhances appreciation of the sequential depths - in time and space- to be entered as one continues to examine the image.
Great composition using the diagonal from the center of the bale to take one back to the general locale of the house!
I enjoy the image!
Dave

Glad you like it. I didn't have good light so I tried to make the most of it in post.

This week's theme - Face Shot

I couldn't get anyone to cooperate with me except Cowboy, my son's cat. Cowboy is not at all self conscious about his notched ears and battered eye. Given his personality I'm sure he thinks they are attractive signs of his toughness on the streets in the years before he was persuaded to become somewhat domesticated.

Thanks for the feedback. If you think of something else to do with the shot, show me! Always interested in other versions, ya know.
