a different picture than I usually take.
I don't know if it works at all, but the lines attracted me to this shot. I think it might lack true interest, but I thought I would give it a try before I embark on another theme that I just finished.
I think it might look cool in sepia or some over tonal treatment but I don't have much experience in those so as I tried them I was not impressed. But give it a try if you like.

Very simple yet captivating photo.
Composition is as simple as it gets... yet it is fantastic.
Obviously can't say anything on the colours, but it seems that in the B&W convert some of the dark colours from the wires have "contaminated" the air around, looks grainy.
I do like the bird in the photo, endless lonelyness. One can almost ask, how many more birds can you get on those wires?
Thanks for sharing.

oddly enough from the thumbnail and without looking at the name i knew this was your picture.
anyway, i really like this, great idea. it really works because of the bird on the wire. keep experimenting!

Can really appreciate the minimalism here, the thin lines look a lot like a drawing. Well done.

I like your attempt. I once saw a similar photo with a single tree branch and a raven at the end of it. It was in sepia or some kind of weird brownish color. It was taken with a film camera I think, but it was very nice. I also saw another one of a city light, like on a tall post, but the photo was practically just the light and it looked really nice. I think you should try this with sepia and focus on one part of the photo (for example, where there is that thing). Give it a shot if you have time, just to see the results.

This is a good minimalist frame, Brady. Nicely geometric, broken by the bird. The sky is a little flat, yet the cables have nice contrast. You know, I agree with Glint on the book cover idea. I think it will work well.

I saw this floating in the main gallery yesterday, but didn't notice your name next to it...
I would imagine this was difficult to compose, though the effect is simple and original...
A nice experiment...
ps. how about "bird on a wire" for a tile?? just a thought...isn't that the name of a song or something...? anyway, real life kicks in...MUST go and do something which will help me secure my next meal!

Hey Brady that's a really cool minimalistic shot! Well spotted, framed and taken. Fantastic compo!

This is really pretty cool. Nothing, yet something. I love those perfectly parallel power lines. I would say, give it even more contrast.

Wow, this is quite cool Brady. What excellent use of large negative space here. The lines are crucial, they give some substance to all that white.
