Happy-making! You found beautiful images in these windows, but it takes more than just noticing; your framing, processing, etc. all make them interesting. I don’t think I would have had as much of the white/right-hand side of the image in the picture here, but keeping the left hand part such a small portion of the whole is smart – I think it makes it more interesting. (Hope that was halfway clear).

I did question that decision. (Grrr, I always question my decisions!) I decided to stick with all that white because I thought it made the color part more precious. I liked the “curtain” being pulled back just a bit to reveal the background.

Maybe this should be called “The Uncover-Up 7” then 🙂

This is a fantastic composition, Linda. There is something fascinating in the use of negative space and this makes the most of it. Well done!!!

I’m glad you like the composition, Ken. Did you see my reply to Lynn’s (Bluebrightly) comment? I wonder if I’ll ever stop second-guessing myself.

Maybe it’s all about how much time you spend second guessing, how many times you question. I think you need to engage in some of that, right? It’s a fine line.

Oh, thanks, Lynn. Yeah, I don’t spend a lot of time on the fence. I guess I just wish I were totally confident of my decisions—or I think that’s what I wish. But maybe if I were totally confident, it wouldn’t be as interesting to hear what others have to say about my images. Yes, you’re right about the fine line.

Linda, So much to see once the eye adjusts….sort of like bacteria. Thanks for looking at my blog—it is your fault you know, really. Started with your iron breathers, which of course prompted attention to macroscopic bacterial manifestations, the metal oxidizers being the visible stars in my recent experience. You are positive peer pressure.

I’m happy to hear that, George.
