Terrific lines, textures, framing, light and implied action, Paddy! I can just sense the springing tension. Plus it's a good example of pareidolia -- could be a bird with open beak! #11601517

The black backdrop sets up the picture of the shears. Pop the lighting, pop the colors, pop the details and the textures. It always amazes me that rust has a beauty all its own. Creative and gorgeous work Patrick. #11601668
