This artist has taken a natural subject and interpreted it as a pure abstract image while keeping its original identity. Or at least that is my impression of this fine image. The carefully selected lights and darks, patterns and shapes, all combine to elicit a direct response from the viewer. That response could be melancholic or joyful; calm or frenzied. The viewer's own moods add to the interpretation. Through its shapes and its definitions - some are pronounced - some are hidden - there is always more to examine. Can you see the fanciful trees in the oasis, or the draperies from milady's costume? Perhaps there is joy in those playful swirling petals, or sadness in the hidden dark curves. Perfectly positioned in the frame and aptly titled Curls, this lovely low-key composition to me brings out the best in abstract nature photography.

The variations in light add interest, as does the processing to black and white. All the curves impart a sense of motion, giving the eye much to enjoy.
