So lovely and simply and such a sensual treatment in B&W....grasses and benches in the background. Soothing!
17 Jun 2009 6:03am
Absolutly wonderful! Great use of the light and the DOF.
17 Jun 2009 6:19am
Yes, a delicate sweetness on the sky and the day can turn!
17 Jun 2009 6:35am
Fantastic use of D of F - works wonderfully well in B & W

Love the duet with Carver's quote, and I do agree entirely, at intervals, extraordinary sweetnesses appear and we know that so well, photographers... Thanks for illustrating it so sweetly ~

Remarkable shot which really engages the imagination . . it is like a secret waiting to be told.
17 Jun 2009 7:35am
Superb view - great postprocessing, nothing left to say ... ^^

Love the vigneting effect here, gives a nice mood to the whole image. Something almost intimate.
17 Jun 2009 8:36am
beautiful composition...love the detail in the grass, and the bokeh is very nice as well :)
17 Jun 2009 8:37am
This is sooo peaceful and gentle - beautifully done.

very beautiful b&w! Like the seat benchs in the background!
17 Jun 2009 9:17am
great mood you created here, the bokeh is very nice as well.
17 Jun 2009 10:08am
Perfect vignetting, I like the benches at the background, and perhaps I miss someone to be seated, but the sceneries are not always the way we'd like, anyway this one is pure beauty.
17 Jun 2009 10:15am
Love the poem and your shot!
17 Jun 2009 10:21am
These small grasses are always watching over the benches and people there.
17 Jun 2009 11:33am
nice composition and wiew from the grass, excellent DOF ! poetic mood !
17 Jun 2009 11:36am
So very peaceful. Love your point-of-view and how you've framed this with the grass in the foreground.

Nice to get down low like that. The two benches really shout out 'absence'

I love the winding effect here, nicely composed sharon. the DOF is just perfect from the benches!
17 Jun 2009 5:04pm
Very nice. I like how it quickly goes from sharp to soft. The benches almost call you to them.
17 Jun 2009 5:10pm
It's lovely and I like it in greyscale.
17 Jun 2009 5:21pm
And we are just like this grass, pushed by the winds. Nice vision of our fragility.
17 Jun 2009 5:39pm
Concentrating on the sweetness helps forgetting everything else. Is the act of looking at those grasses that is important.
17 Jun 2009 6:09pm
17 Jun 2009 6:29pm
So simple et so great.
17 Jun 2009 8:24pm
It's a true heavy atmosphere ! I like very much !

A great mood is created by this carefully crafted image. Love it.

Amazing BW. The composition and the DOF are excellent.
17 Jun 2009 9:36pm
Very moody, or dreamy... image. Open to possibilities and interpretations.
17 Jun 2009 11:32pm
Great illustration for the words of Carver, one of my favorite poet and writer.
18 Jun 2009 4:55am
very suggestive background, and it's suggest human presence beyond the plants. I enjoy the softness of this picture
18 Jun 2009 6:36am
Excellent mood you created here Sharon. Almost like a dream.
18 Jun 2009 10:58am

Great b/w sketch like a poem!
18 Jun 2009 3:22pm
18 Jun 2009 4:10pm
Great shot. Peaceful and we love the focus point.
18 Jun 2009 4:53pm
I can never think of grass or weed when mentioning the word certainty. BUT, we can be certain grass and weed will always come out with a bit of water and rain. Nice shot and title.
18 Jun 2009 6:21pm
I like the sentiment and feel it in the shot. Nice post. :-)
18 Jun 2009 7:49pm
Great shot of these reeds at eye level! Love the processing too.
18 Jun 2009 8:25pm
What a pleasure to come back on this original pov, with the benches lost in the white of the absence.
18 Jun 2009 8:27pm
I really like the way you have played with the depth of field in this shot.
18 Jun 2009 8:46pm
Has a certain doomed feel to it, great use of dof.
19 Jun 2009 4:11am
Beautiful! Love this one too.
19 Jun 2009 9:36am
Very beautiful soft shot !
19 Jun 2009 12:40pm
