Moving past the issue of Symmetry, I offer you Chaos!
General feedback of course, but I am especially interested in your thoughts about crop and alternatives.

Taken inside the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens

Thx
Scott

Hi Scott,

Did you intend to leave it in 8-bit grayscale?

Alternative crop to introduce more dark areas to counterbalance the hi density foliage to center and right.

What does the color version look like?

regards,

Bob

I agree with AuntiPode, the contrast is a bit much. I wonder if the color version might be a bit easier on the eyes and maybe more interesting.

Tha chaos is also a bit much. There is clearly no hint of a center of interest and in fact I just don't find the images retain my interest. Different images or different crops of the same images are not likely to do much in my opinion. I would suggest trying to simplify by moving in much closer or cropping much closer and that would create the possibility of simpler shapes and compositions.

Obviously I am expressing matters of taste and personal preference so take that for what it might be worth.

I like the patterns a lot. I like the contrast, but it's visually relentless. My poor eyes would like a place to rest.

Good. My intent. Except for the need to rest your eyes.
I wanted something powerful, intense, and relentless is a good word.

Yep. Quite a bit much and in a way a key question is how well this works without a center of interest, predominantly by flooding the viewer with visual intensity.
