Two complex autumn scenes, October, West Virginia

Busy? Ugly? Relaxing? Subtle? Complex? These descriptors and more accompany the type of image that I will display in this blog post. In my opinion, there isn't another type of image that is as polarizing. Love it or hate it, these immensely complex images are among my favorite type of image to create and look at. I love the minutia of details that can be studied throughout the frame, and the subtle compositional elements that can be seen either subconsciously or actively, if one is looking hard enough.
