something nothing
Some times I am confused about my own images that whether it's a simple abstract work or just a not so strong idea! This is one such image. I had an image in my mind from a long time. A week back I managed to make this image which is close to I had in my mind.
It's the image of a hanging small leaf. I was searching for something like this from a long time where the a creeper/ leaf in the shadow so that I can get a high key BG. A week back I saw this torned leaf hanging in the dark. I managed to make some images. During PP I converted the image into B/W and increased the highlight region using curves.
waiting for your views.

this is great minimal abstract, adithya. nicely seen 'n executed. i think, many time viewer needs a clue of the subject, atleast in the title / description that makes him realize the art of 'seeing' eg. i could have guessed this as a piece of wire and overlooked it (as i did on flickr !).

I kind of like the simplicity however to me it would have worked far better if we have another visual cue present in the frame - may be even just a fly.

Thanks Ganesh, for the suggestion. I too feel some more lines/ insect would have made this image better. Waiting for the opportunity to better this image.

Hi Adithya,

I too will go with the views of Ganesh, Nevil and swhl about some visual anchor being there in order to convey your intent to the viewer. But having said this it also needs to be admitted that the frail black line in your image pushes the boundary of the concept of minimal composition. It also brings the question of form into discussion. …..i.e. how does it enhance our knowledge of nature through its visual grammar, for example Saurabh’s shot with human form gives another reason to empathise with a tree. how does it challenge the archetype image and provide new ways of looking. Well! any more of this and I would risk going off tangent but Adithya the confusion you talked about in your description of the image is indeed a profound one. Play with it. Bring out more of this.
Thanks for sharing

For me, though it is a simple composition, it looks graphic! Minimalistic approach to make a graphical image! Kudos!
