Reeds redux

Some more reed images, a counterweight of sorts to my previous posting of - I've gone for a darker, somewhat harder atmosphere this time around. I'll be printing these - it'll be fun seeing how they work with the first batch, not sure whether they should get mixed together or be presented as two sets... Oh, and on an anecdotal note, these little buggers are quite sensitive to air movement - give them a spring breeze and they get all worked up as if it were a gale!

I can see these looking very nice printed up large and hung as a collection.

Thank you, Peter. If someone asks me to sell them a large print, no problem. I generally print 20x30cm (with a wide margin) - I find it's a good cost/size ratio, at least for my personal enjoyment.

Thank you Derek. Lots of patience needed for these, and a bit of luck with the breeze!

Missed these earlier - just my sort of thing, thin DOF, blurry backgrounds, almost abstract - agree with the comments about seeing these hung at exhibition size

Thank you Lenny, some will certainly end up hanging on a wall (my own, I'd wager) .

Fascinating series Serge... abstract, but anchored in the real (natural) world... love the curves on these, and the precise, and very shallow, dof... also the echoes of shapes and forms in the bokeh... particularly like how you've chosen to pinpoint the beauty of very precise, tiny elements... the implication being (for me) that there is beauty everywhere, if you choose to notice it... no.2, with the repeating shapes and complementary concentric circles is an absolute belter...

Number 1 for me, just for the beauty in its simplicity.

Thank you Bill for your insight and appreciation.

I suppose that is so - at the very least, there is definitely something to be felt everywhere, if one chooses to let those feelings flow. I'm inclined to believe that does equate more or less to some form of beauty.

Thanks, Gareth and Philip. It's always great to have different people preferring different images - makes you feel they're all decent!
