Same image, different crop for each. What's your favorite part?
For me, it's the bottom of the first image (also the right of the last image). There's some definition and some blur in the leaf edge that has an elegance and delicateness to it, with absolutely beautiful coloring. And second, of course, the geometry of the branch intersections in the second image.
Absolutely love this light, especially the blue and browns in the first.
I find myself becoming particular about light. Not time-of-day light - that's nothing new, I adore dawn and pre-dawn. No, I'm talking about indoor lighting. For example - I was at a wedding this afternoon, and there were candles and hanging lights throughout the cathedral. Beautiful, yes? But difficult to photograph while seated (since your don't have full range of motion with your arms).
Ah, but softer light, diffused light that perhaps is streaming through a window - that is a shape I can play with. And while we're at it, shall we add some blinds to the window, for texture? By all means. And that is the start of this series.
