Here is a shot of some sections of some rolled-up sections of snow fence from this past weekend, which I fiddled around with in PS3. I sort of like the result -- but maybe I've just been looking at it too long. Any thoughts?

this is cool Tom!! the color tonality (lots of dark blue and black but also white) works well, and the composition off-center :) love it!
you should probably take the rest of the night off from it, and come back tomorrow morning with a large mug of coffee and enjoy it...this really takes snow fencing to another dimension in time and space!

Tom,

Well I fiddled too!

Thanks Marian and Asher. I was thinking about an abstract finished product when I did the original shot. I started with the color negative curve selection in CS3 and played a little from there.

Here is the original image (unedited except for resizing and some sharpening to compensate for the usual 1DMk2 out-of-the-camera fuzziness). If anyone else wants to have a go at interpreting this image, have at it.

I like the pattern.

Do you have a wide angle shot at dusk so there will be great shadows and dimensions of the whole thing.

Might ne interesting, like photographing a haystack.

No, sorry. I spotted this scene while driving by a lumber supply yard. I just fired off a few shots and moved on. The surrounding area wasn't really that appealing -- a parking lot, some railroad tracks, some other piles of "stuff," etc. It was shot using a 35mm f/1.4L on a 1DMk2. I know the kind of shot you are thinking about -- this wasn't the right venue for it. The pattern is what attracted me and, as I said, I was thinking of making some kind of abstract end product out of it.
