Grunge it up

MM3
I have been playing with some textures lately and these two photos are the result.
Texture is from Shadowhouse Creations, it is a grungy type texture and I think it goes well with rusty barbed wire.
I have to admit I really like rough and darker and grungier textures and photos rather than the soft pastel creations. I don't know, I guess its all about preferences!

My hubby says they look oppressive!

Oppressive - no, they are crisp and vibrant and very artsy!
Love the sense of depth as well.
Nice work!

Great captures! Have a fabulous week. Mine are here and here.

Such a rich and warm image! And so much depth. I really like the way the wire seems to glow against that gorgeous background. Beautiful! Thank you for being part of Mandarin Orange Monday::

Nice post and great for MOM!

I think they look atmospheric, they imply there is a story untold... do they keep in or keep out!?

Your barbed wire thumbnail on MM caught my interest. Something different than the usual bugs and flowers. I am with you on the "grungy" aspect. I'm not a texture person but I like what you've done here. On an added note, all the barbed wire I've come across in my travels have sharp points. This here is the user friendly model?

I love the texture work and think they are great pictures. We see lots of the rusted barbed wire around our neck of the woods. You have taken the mundane and made it into a lovely piece of art. genie

These are amazing. I'd love to see the original photo, because what you've done with it is very special.

Hard to add anything to the positive comments above. I do like that you chose to shoot on the diagonal, which adds a dynamism that would have been lost in a simply horizontal or vertical position. I especially love the shadows/highlights in the top image-- they create a wonderful sense of 3-D. The bottom image shows how well you could create a narrow field of focus; but, for me, the image did not retain my interest throughout the shot [you might consider cropping in from the right, up to the where the bottom strand goes under the top one].
