Re: High Tension

Nice - no doubt someone might say you should have shot it without the trees. (Or PP them).

I think the trees help form that corridor to look down.........IMHO.

It would quite bland without them or similar...

Now there's a thought - and it works! Just crop the trees off the bottom and it then becomes a more abstract image of almost perfect symmetry. However, I think I prefer it as it is, with the contrast between the softness of nature and the harshness of man made objects. Pylons are often perceived to be ugly and intrusive, but I think they are underrated as photographic subjects and in the right circumstances can make a very powerful composition.

Re: High Tension

Nice shot.

Did your hair stand up when taking it and could you hear a buzzing sound.

Re: High Tension

It was the abstract approach I was thinking of.

Or find a setting without trees, in which case it would suit monochrome.

Edit: sorry, you more or less said the same.

Buzzing yes, but hair-raising no
