I love how the setting sun brought out the repeating patterns and highlights in this plant (a cactus?) with prickly leaves.

Thanks for the compliment. I think the highlights added so much to this otherwise stark picture.

Thanks so much. I think am learning when to use monochrome and when to stick to colour. Thanks to feedback like yours.

Thanks Kerrowdown for the comment. I didn't know you use the word "cool" in Scotland. Or are your referring to the weather out there?

By the way, your humour and helpfulness set a wonderful tone here at PF. I appreciate also the fact that you were among to the first to welcome me when I first joined the forum.

HI Anders,

Thanks. The word "minimalistic" never entered my mind when I was taking this. Now that you mentioned it, I think it is a powerful approach to learn.

Cheers!

Charlie

Thanks Heinrich. I've seen this plant many times but somehow the lighting that afternoon was different and yielded good results.

Yes, the repeating patterns and the subtle texture were the first things that captured my attention. All I needed to do was find the best angle to capture those elements. Am learning how to do "proper" conversion but just careful not to see everything in black and white. No pun intended.

We don't really, it's just my way of trying to be hip and trendy.

Just the way you name your "ladies" is enough to make you cool

Not being a macro shooter my self this one really has a broad appeal due to the short depth of field, good conversion and subtle use of the available light. Well done.

Thanks for your positive observations Fries. Did not expect this photo to get a decent amount of attention especially in the monochrome thread.

Thanks daacon. I think the pattern that follows the golden ratio adds a mesmerizing quality to the photo.
