Larches in autumn.
Or rusty iron.

When I first looked at this I thought it was a plant as Erik suggested, but then I realized it was metal. I think it’s a great abstraction. The only thing I would change is to clone out that anomaly on the right edge of the image, as it negates the abstraction. Then print it 60 x 40 and hang it over your couch.Re: landscape?Reply #3 on: June 14, 2022 at 9:45 am
I would agree: I would actually remove the third on the right with what looks like smearing and then the metal deformation on the right edge. Then you have a beautiful asbtract of that larch forest, staged in front of more larch forest. Maybe you can even remove the glare / reflections in the top half of the image.

It all depends, Jeremy. Are we using the same loose definition we used to use for street, or are we trying to be more precise? Does it really matter? In the end, what matters is that it’s beautiful.

It could probably do with a little fiddling. Certainly, the deformation on the right can go.
I’ve no objection to your post, Erik. I rather like it.
Russ, the title of the thread is light-hearted. As you know, I’m not interested in genre definitions. I’m glad you think it’s beautiful.
I have some more of similar rust: Kevin, as we all know, is very fond indeed of rust and we spent a very enjoyable time taking photos of it one afternoon.

I think the fiddling would be worth the while for that image.
