While working on my shells series over the last weeks I've become attracted to the subtleties of what I think I should describe as tone. By that I mean very close shades of color which when placed next to each other can reveal depth. Also I think subtle color variations don't just have a visual impact in the sense of perspective; they also reveal aspects of the subject beyond the structure of the image........or maybe I'm over thinking it! Ha!
Anyway, when I look at this I see flexibility and strength in some tension and I like that revelation.
