I chose the vertical format for the triptych, as first suggested by Kitty (who, by coincidence, was also one of the three prize winners for August). The nature of each shot is vertical, both by orientation and composition. When the triptych is laid out vertically, it takes on a very commanding presence, as I'm sure you'll agree.
I've chosen a balanced sequence that goes for a top-to-bottom flow and a title which is both observational and describes the sculpting approach I used—a pun always helps :)
I've managed to avoid the question of naming the individual images while I've been concentrating on the triptych and sorting out the August prize draw but I'll need to return to that next. But first I have to work out and post some new rules for the September draw, ones which mean I don't lose a whole day actually making the draw, like I did this time!
comments / critique / feedback always welcome :)
