Not sure if others have this issue (okay, I am certain we all do), but coming up with a name for this guy was brutal (I even let the image site overnight and named it this morning)! While listening to Nocturne No. 2 by Chopin, the name came to me (helped out for some reason…it is before 6am here), Reclaim! I love how the growth is overcoming this somewhat brutal barbed wire fence, reclaiming what was once hers. Seems a little fitting for a Friday, time to reclaim our week by having an awesome weekend! 😀

Nia, I am glad you like it, thank you very much.
splendid sense of sadness, perfect atmosphere
Thank you Fabrizio.
I like it – words and image.
Thank you Mike.
I swear David I dig the barb on the fencepost shot, and this is fav by far. I also agree with Brandon about the tones. Nice.
Thank you very much Lionel, greatly appreciated! I got a few good shots from my quick outing yesterday, shots of this very same barbed encrusted post! Stay tuned…
Great look & feel to this one David!. Your image pairs nicely as a visual to the poetry I wrote at 1:00am. 🙂
Lol, must be an interesting poem! 😀
Wow, that’s a grat photo. And pillar texture is very interesting. 🙂
Thank you very much Cornel, I took more images of this fence…stay tuned. 😀
Brandon stole my word…tones. The subtle tones are really nice. Cool shot.
🙂 Thank you very much Michael, glad you liked it.
Oooooh,that is a real humdinger David,superb. Love the tones!
Adrian, thank you so very much for your kind comment…always appreciated!
Hi David – I really like this. Did you work just in the colour version, or did you split it into colour and b&w to work on and then recombine? Sorry, I don’t know the technical terms not being a “user”.
Hey Ehpem, thank you! I did all post in photoshop (cs5) and always work in colour first. I added a B&W layer for this image and then lower the opacity of the layer until I like the outcome (I dig the muted colour look). This was actually a Sepia conversion with some vignetting added. Thank you for the question. 😀
Thanks for the answer. I am coming to recognise that method and the way it looks. And I really like it. It is very reminiscent of an old hand coloured b&W postcard or similar.
Or painting colour on a b&w photo, I remember doing that when we had our b&w darkroom. I always went for the muted/pastel’ish colours!
Well, it works, David. I love these types of photos as they provoke a sense of humbleness to nature, reminding us that it will also take back. Great tones and I really like how the focus brings the eye to those barbs.
Thank you very much Brandon, to be honest, that clump of barbs is what really caught my attention in the first place! 😀
