thank you very much for your opinion. And yes, I guess you are right about the black foreground. I will give it a try.
Photos, sculpture, paintings, print making are often works in progress. Often times we don't really know how we'll feel about a finished piece until we see something tangible in front of us. My father was an art teacher and I spent many hours watching him at home in his studio creating beautiful landscapes and representations of the world around us. Many times he would "work" and area of a painting and then go back into that same spot the next day and render a different interpretation. I learned a lot back then. My sister teaches painting at the local college and I sometimes sit in on her critiques. She too is a great source of helpful info and inspiration.
Most of the folks here on POTN are intelligent, creative folks and I've always enjoyed good constructive conversation over the years.
Sometimes we get a little impatient with our comments though and have to step back for a moment and think about what we've said. We're all trying to learn here and some are visiting for the first time. Patience is a wonderful commodity. Sadly it seems to be in short supply in my own country, when civility and courtesy seem to be a thing of the past; rant over.
