hmmm I wonder about a crop right around the leaf
it doesn't have any interest, it's so literal.
yeah, it's a symmetrical object, for the most part. i don't want to loose the symmetry part, or make it boring. KWIM?
ya not as interesting. I like the diagonal of the stem, is the 2nd a crop also or full?
it's a crop. there are blow portions in the bg I knew I would have to crop out.
I really like the detail of the first one
I like the first one.
I pick #1
Just a lurker dropping in on this one to say:
Huh... Interesting. I was so sure everyone would pick #2. That's the one I like. I like the straight line of the branch amongst the graceful curves of the leaves, and the way it's on its own apart from the other leaves. It feels more impactful to me.
