The painted façade of one the lower seafront arches of Brighton Promenade in East Sussex, England. Opportunistic weeds having rooted in the smallest of cracks in the brickwork, get ready to seed and hopefully find another part of the red brick wall to root themselves in.

Kia Ora Brian,
A nicely composed photo. The bright blue contrasts with the red-orange brick which provides an ideal backdrop for the little opportunist weeds. Great picture.

Very well composition, sharpness and clarity are perfect. TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

The framing is perfect and as Juan implies makes the composition. Lovely saturated tones and excellent clarity. Well spotted and expertly presented.

And you made the most of this opportunity too. This is an excellently observed abstract composed with fantastic colours, shapes and textures.

Well seen...a very good eye to dicover this nice subject, great realization and composition, colours and textures are both really good...

Hello Brian - Contrasting colours work well in this composition; both the blue and brick red enhancing the impact of each other, a personal favorite combination of mine and with the details and shadows produced by the light, perfect. The plants add a natural touch which adds another good contrasting detail. Nice one ! Warm regards rosemary

you noticed the scene and its uniqueness perfectly.These vivid colors and strong contrast between them look fabulous.It looks almost like a painting.The picture has excellent clarity and light.Even the weedes and the way they cast a shadow on the wall contribute to the success of your composition.

un particolare coloratissimo, molto ben ripreso.
Una bella idea ben realizzata.

Great capture of the tiny detail here, Brian. I'm constantly amazed at the spots plants manage to find to take root - every nook, cranny, and opening is fair game. Here, you combine that concept with a really nice color study and your usual brilliant blues and reds. Very nicely seen and captured.

I love these close-up views of little details - the sort of details upon which you just want to "home in" rather than just sticking to capturing the wider picture. But sometimes I worry that they might not be looked upon kindly by the administrators here and might be felt to be more appropriate to TrekLens.
I do have a TL and a TN account but, I must confess, I have been rather remiss in not being at all active there for quite some time. Do you have a TL or TN account? (I used to use TL for pictures of old cars, pictures of our pussy cat, odd "overworked" pictures, funny photos and things like that but I only have about four or five pictures on TN.)
But this one is lovely. Not only do we see the little plants (I hesitate to call them "weeds") opportunistically taking root in the crevices around this archway, but we see the fine details and textures of paintwork and brickwork too, all seen in the most delicious light.
Gorgeous vibrant colours, excellent composition and stunning sharpness.

For this type of photo to work, it has to be pin-sharp; if not the magic is often gone. Well, this one could hardly be sharper! Great detail you captured beautifully. Pleasantly framed and very graphical, attractive colours. Stupid perhaps, but I like that the two plants are not the same species.
SteveH (6187) 2012-09-28 18:52
Hi Brian, attractive composition from an everyday scene. Well seen and executed. cheers, Steve

Jewish culture and pragmatism logical English.
From small to large, from large to small.
Are, for your channels, large panoramas traced back to two or three polarizing elements attention.
Even this picture has three or four elements "sense. Extendable conceptually and repetitive in large areas without losing expressive power.

Those common weeds hold a high-ranking post, set artistically amid the three primary colors!
