    Wonderful image -- I love the center 'negative space', which is actually the lighter space (basically the branchless area)...a sensuous earth-mother form. Or at least that is where my mind is going tonight.

    The negatives don't improve but what can improve is your opinion of them. Several years back, in Kern County north of Bakersfield, I shot an early morning 6x7 transparency of a view overlooking a plowed earthen field with the plow lines running vertically and disappearing in a luminous fog that the Central Valley is famous for. It looked like a picture to me which is the reason I stopped and took it. But when the transparency was developed it wasn't as appealing. For some reason that view popped into my mind a couple of days ago and I have been looking for it since. I keep all of my 6x7 slides mounting the ones I initially judge to be worthy in Gepe anti-newton mounts, and the rest in cardboard Blair mounts. Its in one of the card file boxes - each of which contain about 100 slides. I'll find it.

    Curious for feedback on this.. January was a very productive month for photos and this is one of the better.

    I think it's got a magical quality.

    Perhaps this minor edit ?

    Looks a bit surreal and ominus like a dream that fades away as you wake the way it goes from in focus to blur as you move farther into the scene until it is hard to know what you are looking at. Gives that feeling of I know something and I am positive about it, but I just can't remember any more.
