Background in search of a subject?
This is another shot from my photo walk through the neighborhood park yesterday. I felt I had to try to make something interesting out of the beautiful, lacy, frosted branches, but could not find a primary focus, a subject for a composition. What I ended up doing was attempting to balance the areas of white, orange, green and brown so that the picture could be "about" nothing more than planes of color and texture. Yesterday I wasn't sure if I succeeded, so I didn't even post the shot. Now here it is for public criticism. Have at it folks! Thanks for looking.
