Comment: Women’s Lib, Bursting with Energy
Plant: Milk Weed Pod
Circular movement of seeds leads the eye around the image nicely. Technically a well lite image.
Circular rhythm of petals leads the eye successfully into the focal point. Left leaf distracts from the overall composition
Know When To Bend
Repetition of grasses create a strong patterned composition with sense of movement. Right side
appears crowded in relationship to total pattern.
A reflection of the myriad number of directions
opened for women by the movement.
Plant: A. sphaerocephalon, Hairy Allium
The related colors purple and green make for a
harmonious composition. The busy background
reduces the strength of the Allium.
Waves and Ripples of Movement
The yellow lily and its reflection stand out nicely against the rippling background water. Competing focal points confuses viewer.
Pursue What Energizes
The delicate curvilinear lines of the sprouts draws hour eye up through the image giving the image movement. The strong shadows overwhelm the delicacy of the sprouting plant
Comments: Feminism, a political and
social movement for change.
Plant: Flower from a Mimosa Tree
A thoughtful and engrossing image of soft pastels and strong diagonal lines makes a creative composition. The details in the background compete with the delicacy of the blossoms.
