Checkmark

A broken branch in the show, with its shadow, forming a checkmark shape.
Check. Next?

I found this broken branch sticking out of the ground on the same trip to the Cliffs where I found the lonely leaf.

I've been focusing on geometry and strong lines lately -- here's an extremely spare composition as an example. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think: strong and direct, or empty and uninteresting?

Difinitely strong and direct. I love the shadow, and the strength in the simplicity.

You captured it perfectly..............:)

Lisa -- cool, thanks. :) I'm glad it worked out. I think this photo is the kind that people either love or hate...

I like this photograph. There is something about it that makes me want to stare at the stick coming out of the snow--sort of mesmerizing! Will get BC to look at it. :-)
