Fabulous contrast. Hope the bird made it free.

Luis Gomez said...

Gorgeous. It made me think of the bird as well.

This is a great illustration of the saying "The whole is more than the sum of its parts." Each picture by itself is nice, but the series makes them really interesting!

Oh, Julie, a delicate, harsh, wonderful post.

Bill said...

Wonderful shots Julie, but I give in: How did you get rid of the barbed wire in in the first shot?

Julie said...

Lent over the fence! *grin* but but but ...

I do have another shot where it is only visible if you KNOW it is there.

Come up fairly close, focus on the feather and use a very very open aperture, say F4.0

Julie said...

Actually, Bill. Look at that first shot again. Down the LH corner, there is a smudge of grey flowing from the feather into the foreground. That is a massively blurred strand of barbed wire.

Vicki said...

I love the detail of the feather in the first shot. Great photos.

Ann said...

Interesting concept. I was wondering how you got the first shot, as well.

Jayne said...

Fab shots! :)

Joan Elizabeth said...

Lovely shots but the title you have selected adds something special.

Marka said...

Good series. Good eyes too, to spot this.

Bruce Caspersonn said...

So they say, this proves it...

Nice set, impressive closeup. You do set the bar rather high for the rest of us.
