Richard Pitman

A photography by Richard Pitman is called Explosion.  It is of a ash tree that he spotted on his lawn.  It is interesting how the vignette was created that gives it more dignity.  The branches structure transforms the imagery as if it were more about positive and negative space.  On the other hand, I see a dark environment that goes beyond the tree branches.  I have to admit the composition is a bit odd.  I am not used to seeing something cropped from the top to mid top which throws me off a bit.  Since the branches are clear it helps the composition and how the contrast is dark enough to look more interesting.  It gives it more mystery and focus on the tree itself rather than what a full tree looks like because branches is more interesting since they go many direction.
