It does seem that specimens that are less than perfect tend to tell their own stories and more of their character and struggles are visible, I have no problem with that. If one doesn't realize the impact of that image then that could be a problem depending on how they are trying to present it, case in point the beauty of a butterfly does not tend to show through on one with tattered wings but then again we all seem to appreciate the character of a well aged wrinkled face............I hope
There is a blend of both in your shots here which is kind of fun for my mind, I begin to see the beauty then realize some of the hardships yet can appreciate both aspects of the image, I often look at roughed up wings like patina on metal, it adds an interesting element to the image..........
By the way, your BG's are darn near perfect
Thanks for sharing and asking.........
