Flame On

Flame On is from my Naturally Abstract collection and was composed at Hopeland Gardens in Aiken, SC. This is another one of those subjects that sort of bother you because you can't give up on it, but it's hard to find the composition you know is there. It took me several weeks before I found what I wanted, and I don't even know how many images I threw away.

Steven,

You have done a good job on this one as the subject with so much linearity and repeats begs to be your subject. The red adds a lot to its success!

Execution is the challenge!!

I was out in my garden just before it complete stopped the very last drops of rain and faced the same challenge of how to frame and what angles to use. With sparkling rain drops or a background of stone, or water, it may be easier.
