Very pleasing. One of those photo ops I would hope I'd notice and not dismiss or miss :) Love the gentle simplicity and the textures.

I like the shadow play and the moodiness of this. There is an aspect of beauty that mixes in with this darkness, and a hope that would be missing from a Beksinski piece. I find this image raw, powerful, about the struggle of life and the return to nature of things neglected.

Restful. Hopeful. All any plant asks is a little soil, a little light, and a little water. Yumans could take a lesson from that...

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

This is an amazing image, less for the subject and more for the processing. Soft and sharp, dark and light, flat and contrasty. This is wonderful! S-
