Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Edward Weston (Advanced Editing VII*)
Collection: Workshop
Camera: Canon EOS-40D
Lens: Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM

Weston did actually take a few photos in strong sunlight with slashy shadows. The shadow was often part of the subject and the final product was less contrasty than this is.

In this image, I aimed to insinuate his twisted limb motif (root vegetables, human legs) and tried to match the tonal range of his famous pepper.

Thanks for the comments, several of them are much more positive than anticipated.

Loved the title, full of connections and meaning like the true limbic system

To me this does not look like any Weston photograph. It does, however, seems to capture some kind of Westoniness I can't substantiate. It seems like a shot Weston could have taken. Nice.

I like the contrast, but I don't find the subject interesting enough.

the interwoven limps is well seen - but the shadows seem to almost overwhelm

Beautiful overlapping rhythm. I'm not much for titles, but yours works well.

Definitely Westonesque. The type of photo of his that doesn't particularly appeal to me. But pulled off very well here. Very subtle bit of personification in the tangled branches. Very good for the challenge, IMHO.
