You'll see a lot of strong color contrast in these photos. The split tree, though, I like for the subtlety of the hues, with strength residing in shapes and textures.
Here is how this one was originally shot, for comparison. An early viewer graciously took the time to comment, pointing out some glaring faults. I think the cropped version above is closer to what I was imagining (and should have seen before posting!) - I don't expect everyone to like the juxtaposition of corrugated steel and soft leaves, but that contrast is in fact what caught my eye. Thanks to those of you who look closely and are willing to say what you think. I really appreciate it! I don't post everything I shoot, of course, but this blog is in part an exercise and learning tool for me. That's why the photos are generally in chronological order, rather than being arranged artfully as a group.
The bright colors of this wagon fit the mood of the season, and I liked the tension of chaos and order in the different types of wire.
