I think this is a very dramatic composition and I like the square format.
It looks to me that you applied an artistic filter. I would have preferred to see backlit detail and a slight white stoke.   Posted: 06/09/2020 14:27:57

In exhibitions as in many presentations, our work is often displayed on a black background. If it is important to the composition for the viewer to know where the edges of the composition are, then the white stroke is a great idea. There are other times that the white lines serve as a distraction from the composition itself. Sometimes it is good to view it both ways. Frankly, I think I like this one without the stroke.   Posted: 06/09/2020 21:29:33

The smooth black and white swirling lines are interesting. Looking at the image I can't tell that it was moving in the wind. There are many interesting graphical elements. The subject is sparse and my eye keeps moving around looking for a place to settle.   Posted: 06/09/2020 19:37:55

I think this is a beautiful study. The detail in white tones really enhance the interesting geometric software the whole. It is very nice to let my eyes roam around and be enchanted. Well done.   Posted: 06/10/2020 11:27:51

What unusual texture. Truly black and white! How about a mid grey stroke?   Posted: 06/11/2020 16:37:12
