I agree with Linda's conclusion: you inspire us with your special view of the world, and what that view allows you to isolate then capture and present with such skill.

I'm a sucker for industrials so the first has a lot of attraction for me based on the subject matter and your composition and rendering. The other two - well, you've managed to build compositions around objects most of us try desperately to avoid or remove. Well done, and thank you for the seeing and the sharing.

Thanks Ernst. I enjoy studying your photos, especially the ones taken outside your studio. I try to see what you saw, what you left out, what you included, and what you did with what you took. I deal with the same outside environment--clouds, powerlines, buildings--and "want to be like Ernst." Stunning stuff. Very pleasing transition between tones in 1;I have to learn how to do that and avoid too much contrast. Your work looks very natural. And now, after your posts and Linda's, I will never avoid power lines again. So, I went out and found some.

Learning.

Thanks guys for the comments.

Matt, "Cool Beans" ;-) My image of the telephone poles is a reflection in a dirty puddle and then turned upside down. ;-)

Ernst,

Always learning. Never had I heard 'cool beans.' Very flattered. Thank you. Yes I had suspected the photo was a reflection; must have been a very big puddle.

After I had posted my pole and seen it on the pM, I didn't like it so I went back and tried again. Here 'tis. Sigh!

wires - everywhere wires. I like the tones and textures of the first and on the third, I'll be damned if I can understand how you made a fence look so good - everything lined up with the pole. It is a strange image in that at first it is "I don't want to look at that", but you keep looking and exploring. Very cool!
