About the Image(s)

Continuing with my "Living Yard Art".. Well, its that time of the year where we are inundated with crickets... This was opened up in APS-CS6. Resized and cloned out a few "half crickets" on the edges. Saved for WEB...

This round’s discussion is now closed!

I am really enjoying your Living Yard Art photos. I spent my early years in the south, and am all too familiar with hordes of critters of all sorts appearing out of nowhere - here, there, and everywhere. These little fellows give the appearance of parading up to some fantastic destination in the sky. I think the group of three in the lower left corner adds to the feeling of joining the party. But for me the ones on the other corners are a distraction, so I cloned them out. See what you think.   Posted: 11/11/2019 15:39:01

What an interesting crickets' "rendezvous" - never seen anything quite like it before. It seems that everyone climbed one upward direction to joint the exciting "party". Nice shot.   Posted: 11/11/2019 22:43:18

My first thought was that the image is a abstract in nature. Nice composition and lighting. The fact that the white background different surfaces give the image depth. I agree with the changes Audrey made it removes the distractions close to the edges.   Posted: 11/21/2019 10:33:11

I love the subject(s) here. Great for a black and white image certainly. Agree with cleaning up the edges. I would suggest playing around with adding more contrast and clarity (adding grunge). Good eye to capture this, you could have just been grossed out and walked right by it.   Posted: 11/25/2019 23:25:09
