One of the biggest benefits that we get from BP is that as photgraphers we will grow. How can we not become more versatile, more gifted, when we are influenced with the works of so many other artist around us. We inspire one another to reach out, try new things, don't be afraid to experiment. Patrick is such an inspiration because his art shows us that things we would never look at twice for beauty has it if we can open our eyes and see it. I personally think that the harder we have to look for the beauty the more we appreciate it, and our eyes open more still. I also think in many ways it makes us better photographers.
While you have been inspired, these two pictures are about you. about your ability to bring out the beauty, to present it in a way that is pure art. You are the talened one here my dear friend. #9219371

Yep- looks like you appreciate the complexity of rust, as seen per Patrick too! #9219393

Patrick Rouzes level-classic February 07, 2011

Maria, it is a great feeling to know that I have inspired an incredible photographer like you. I did not think I would ever be uttering those words.
Both images are spectacular but I prefer the "Designed by Nature, too"!
The tones, textures, lighting, clarity and presentation are superb, indeed! Both you and Frank inspire me too! Thank You! #9219618

Walking on Fort De Soto Beach,Fl I found these leaves that had formed designs on the sand and thought about 2 BP members and friends,Frank D and Patrick R.They both have taught me to look outside of my photo preferences.
Thank you both for opening my eyes to all of Nature's possibilities.
