    Part of the gate going out to the chicken yard.

    I find this extremely beautiful and these spots of yellow make it look like a thick oil painting!

    Love this Dave. I like the beautiful pastel mint colour, the light and the coloured spots 🙂

      Thanks Dahlia. All of the micro spots of color, mold and lichen is what caught my eye.

    Love it! Lichen is a great excuse to get the macro out I reckon. There is so much hidden detail and colour up close. Flip this sideways and it could be coral on a sea floor 🙂 .

      I agree about the hidden details found with macro lenses. That’s what makes it so much fun for me. You’re the 2nd person to suggest rotating it to horizontal. I think you both may be on to something.

      Thanks Patrick. There are many little forests of lichen on this gate. I’m pretty sure there’s a really nice image there somewhere. I’m going to keep looking.

    love the soft, pastel colors and shallow dof.  i like the post processing, but this would be a great candidate for a matte edit too.

      Thanks for the feedback Beth. I have only a vague idea of how to do a matte edit. I’ll have to learn some more about it. I’m pretty green in the ways of post processing.

    Following Graham’s and another’s suggestion I rotated this shot. Re cropped it as well. It does look a lot like coral. I like this one better.
