<<< o >>>on the wire #3 7 comments + add yours

This is the third of four images in this small series (the first two are here and here) and is Libby's definite favourite. Initially, I wasn't sure about this one, but it's grown on me. Personally, I still like the first one best, but I'd be interested to hear which you prefer – and why.

Like a glamour shot from a concentration-camp. Cool shot.

I like the first picture. I think it is because of the contrast between the red wire and the blue background, it gives more of an edge - if you can follow me?

This picture is indeed nice, but the lowkey-potrait and red tone makes for a more "neutral" shot, as I think this should alarm more sadness.

My vote is for the first for the color and the second for the B/W. But I feel the third (this posting) is too busy with its wire-layers.

LOVE the idea David. Looking forward to more show the original shots.

I like the first one and this one. The first one looked like a movie poster in search of a movie, and this one definitely is the sequel to the first movie. The way her left eye appears in this image is particularly creepy! "Rusty Wire Fence: The Sequel - This Time, the Kids are Hungry!"

amazing picture -- I see strength and weakness, beauty and harshness, and hope.

I vote for the first one being my favorite. I like everything about it. The dark feel that is presented, the amount of detail pulled out from it, the color toning, the uniformity across the chicken wire and having the hand as the subject. Regarding this image, part of me likes it and the other part not so much. I like the idea behind having the chicken wire being the focus of the image. I am not all that excited about how it cuts the image in half diagonally. To me it seems to cause a conflict between the more simple shallow side of the image and the busy double layered wire.
