"No.8 Wire" by LARA MOSS; Grade: Acceptance.
No.8 wire meaning innovation, so well seen. A good theme and quite interesting. The white grasses on the left are somewhat of a distraction, being so bright against the rest of the image. There is also little of interest in this part of the image. The diagonal composition is also well handled and to capture this image as it is has shown the seeing eye of the photographer. Well done thus far. I see by the image properties you may have used Picasa to turn this picture to black & white. From this image, the saturation has been reduced to complete the conversion. With Picasa, if you use "filtered B&W" you will have more control over the final image by being able to adjust the tones in the image. In other words, had the grasses been green, the tone could have been darkened in that part of the image. A very handy little program in this way.
