Unusual subject matter! I like no.4 but in my minds eye I see it cropped tighter so no bottom bit and also cleaned up and made black and white for a very unusual abstract image.

Interesting subject and photos.

4 is certainly very unusual and it works well whereas I found the others a bit too busy.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Thanks, all

It was the very busy-ness, the chaotic result of the simple function of spiralling (as seen in no.4), over & over to find a support for growth, that attracted me to the subject in the first place.
I wasn't sure about leaving them in colour, though.....I'll convert a couple to mono & post.

Thanks again,

Roger.

1 and 4 for me.

But I would probably have edited out the spider silk(?) in no 4. But that's just me.

Some people call me 'strange'.
I prefer 'unconventional'.
But I'm willing to compromise and accept 'eccentric'.

Would have, could have, should have, didn't.

Don't know why......

All interesting for me. Many moons ago in my working life. I sold a machine to a firm that made harvesting machines. They were making a machine just then for harvesting peas. Peas started life all mixed up on the plant with leaves and tendrils. Then they bred out the leaves and left just peas and tendrils. This still made a mess in the machines so they bred the plants so that the peas only grew at the top of the plant. NOW they could get peas easily and quickly with a harvesting machine. You got peas that were "fresh as the moment when the pod went pop" I just thought you all might like to know that.
CHEERS Vic.
Born again biker with lots of Pentax bits. Every day I wake up is a good day. I'm so old I don't even buy green bananas.

Well, I do tend towards something like a very mild form of OCD when it comes to my pictures - straightening, removing colour casts, editing out minor distractions.

Maybe you're a tad saner than I am!

No. 4 (the single spiral) exudes elegant simplicity. For me, though, the others with their tangles win prizes for messy excitement, with best in show going to No. 1 for sheer exuberance and a feeling of bursting the shackles of convention.

But then I enjoy unravelling bindweed and recalcitrant knots...

Ok, so I like the crops, but tbh I actually prefer the colour versions.

The first of the coloured is intricately balanced/unbalanced, a very nice composition. The last of the b+w's responds to it in a differently unbalanced manner, like it very much also. Good ideas all around, there's plenty to be found in our gardens.
