  1. In this case I am glad you left the wires. It’s highly probable that I will never visit this area so seeing it as is it is a documentary photo, and one I’m so very thankful to see! Thank you for sharing the image as it you saw it.

    Photographs like these carry so much value. As a viewer I get that…as a photographer I tend to try for total perfection, and exclude people, and wires et al. I need to step back more often and remember the viewer, and the documentary aspect of the place, time, and situation.

    Thank you so much Pam for this lesson!

    • I really appreciated reading your response to the image. I’m glad I decided to just let it be as it was. It may not always be the same. I’ve returned to rural scenes in our country to find barns torn down and a completely different look. Things can happen fast in China, so I’m glad I took the shot. I think there is a blend of art and journalism in photography. Thanks, Deborah šŸ˜Š.

    • Hi, Frank! I really appreciate your feedback on this image. It will help me remember to pay attention to the whole scene working together, as you pointed out. Thanks a bunch šŸ˜Š.

  2. This is a really good documentary/story photograph and the added element of colour from the stacks is lovely. The reaction to the wires is interesting; I can see why you left them (and would have done the same) but I find them a real blot on the landscape and wish they were all buried!
