I found this dead Bonsai laying on the street and I think it deserves more Respect so I took it to my home.
To me is like an Old Poet

Great shot, the BW is awesome for it. The only thing i would have done different is moved the pot a bit to the right so it is more centered in the picture.

Thank you very much for your great comment. I agree with you about what you said

A outra resulta melhor, devido ao contraste mais forte. E também da composição gráfica que lhe deste.
Mas é só a minha opinião.

Um abraço! Obrigado por partilhares :)

A Bonsai... my dad's got loads of them, and I damn those are beautifull little trees! Lovely the way you tried to make the background totaly white (tho I can still see where the floor and wall came togehter) you did a fine job on that actually.. I've tried that stuff several times but I always end up with major shadows :|

Not too sure bout the space you left in front of the bonsai tho.. this because at the top and other sides you left this little space.. I guess I would've really made it stand out by adding more space at both sides and the top.. to sorta make the whole give a feeling of loneliness.. After all it has been dumped :(

Nice shot nevertheless! :)

even after being dead- the bonzai is still beautiful. perhaps even much more so now.

I never saw this bonsai in live, I found her already dead but I love it the way it is even if i wish that she lives and i didn´t catch it in the street.Thank you for your comment :)

What an unusual subject. Really eyecatching, good call on the b&W. So pointy :)

bonsai- so peaceful and amazing in its simplistic form even without its greens. definitely does remind me of an old poet. :+fav:

very simple but effective, and eloquent... just like an old poet :-)

Very inspiratinal. Pretty, the lback and white efect add age to the poet. It's a nice picture, and there seems to be no forgotten space.

How sweet of you to do so :) But yes, there is a very empty feeling to this photo, I like it alot and think your choice to put it in BW was the smart one, it would probably not look half as good in color.. -kia

This can tell quite the story, even after death. Great photograph, :+fav:

Really great shot and idea with this bonzai. I don't know what the A80 is capable of, but i should have tried to get the picture more sharp and more centered ... to emphasize the concept.
very nice anyway ! :)
