I've got a couple titles in mind, but they sound rather cliche' ... wondering what you guys might think of.

C&C welcome as usual.

Where the Fence Ends.

(You didn't say they had to be catchy of inspired.)

Karen, I'm always inspired by you ... which includes your "no shame" personna.

Pretty image and a nice composition. The eye can walk that strong line fence.

Beautiful, Kent. Composed and framed just right.
Not much to nitpick on. Darn!!
Whites are, maybe, a bit bright mid-fence. Maybe. On a monitor.
Excellent choice for BW and I love the misty, quiet feel.
Not coming up with a title, but I think it needs to be less about the fence and more about the scene it defines and how.

Interesting image. A different take on leading lines and different from most of the white fence images we see.

Since you are having trouble with a title, "On the Fence" might work.

A little long but "The grass is always a richer tone of gray on the other side of the fence" would be another one.

You could also ignore the fence entirely and go with something boring like "Homestead".

P.S. - I think I would go with a black matte instead of the white. It doesn't compete with the fence so much and makes it easier to enjoy the detail in the mid-grays IMO.

Thanks guys ...


"pretty image and nice composition" ... coming from Kaden, that rings very different than it might from others. I was wondering if the image is too cliche' ... but if Kaden likes it, it probably passes the anti-cliche' test.


Scott ... +1 @ the mid-fence needing toned down a touch. I want it to transition more to better emulate the fog that is surrounding everything. Will take a bit more 'skillful' PP than I was up for last night.

Fence vs. scene vs. mood ... that's part of what I'm wrestling with re: title. This one is going against my "What's the point?" / Where do you want to draw the viewers eye a bit, in that is more about "eye candy" than a specific point. For me, the fence, the foggy home, the shades/tones, etc. In some regard, it was just a "pretty scene" when I shot it, so I really haven't determined my message for it other than some "eye candy". I think the eye goes fence, down the line, home, across the tree line, lone tree, back to fence ... that circular thing that keeps you engaged (or so I'd like to think).

A little twist on Chuck's title might go something like this:

"The neophyte framer, not yet grasping the concept of image fencing, ponders the fate of his missing tonal values."

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words (Chuck's lack of text) ... while framing seems very natural to Dennis & Chuck (et al), I'm not there yet. But, I have hope that I'll eventually get there (with everyone's continued help of course).

"Title Unknown"
"Somewhere"
"Foggy Fence"
"Around The Fence"
"Fence Row"
"Misty Morning"
"Through The Fog"
"Guiding Lines"
"Life's Lines"
"Familiar Boundaries"
"The Way Home"
"Peaceful Morning"

"Harmony" ... hmmm, whatcha think ??

Image reminds of the cover of DeWolfe's book on BW Printing. Cliche or not, still nice.

How about simply "Untitled" ?

Beautiful image!

How 'bout a play on the sport of fencing: "En Guarde"

Again, great image.

BTW ... Bob, you know this is all your fault, with that silly link to DeWolfe.

Rob, thanks ... I've always been a fan of double entendre, but I'm not sure "country" folks would quite get it ... although it is kinda cool.

While the fence is a dominant compositional element, the beauty of the image is contained by it. Peaceful Morning, while perhaps not the most unique title, captures the mood well for me.
Other reactions: is the fence about access or restriction? Is it a way in or being partially blocked from the scene beyond? Is it a private dreamy spot we all might want?

FYI ... the fence is only a decorative "boundary" element to separate property lines (short "L") and foot traffic from the street (length).

The house in the background is NOT the same property as the fence. My POV is standing in the driveway (i.e. the reason for the 'incomplete' fence) entrance (near the street which runs parallel to the fence). The fence actually belongs to a house set back about 800 yards from the road.
