This seems quite abstract, but very pretty. It's completely different from the cliche looking shots of the veins in a leaf. Good find. The white isolates the subject but seems to leave something missing about the scene. Have you tried converting the white to black or another solid color with this shot?

Hard to get... Is the white background the sky? Interesting.

The white background and confusing metal work on the right detract. How do I know this is morning?

the white background leaves this without context to me - it takes me a while to sort through all the lines to even figure out what I'm looking at. A different angle that told me this is a porch, or whatever, might be better
