Now here's a silly little pic. !!!.......having a coffee & cake, as you do, in a cafe at Trentham Gardens near Stoke......The glitter in the
chrome legs of the tables & chairs really caught my eye, & thought there's a possibility for something 'different', so..........................

It'll probably sink like a Lead anchor ??....but I'm happy with the result, it turned out exactly as I had visualized !!!.GrinGrin

I've added a 'version' in a Blue tone, with added grain/noise......which may or may not appeal, I'm sure you'll let me know......Grin

Many thanks for all the C&C's for 'Autumn Tints'.........glad you liked it, & hope it inspired one or two to try a 'Scanograph'.....Smile

Not sure which I like best, they're both excellent images. So different in nature they deserve their own spotlight, Keith.

I've always thought that cafe furniture is photogenic, but never been able to 'see' the image. This has worked really well Keith - love the pov and processing and think I prefer v1 although..... Smile

V2 is completely different, and the better of the two in my opinion, more abstract and more controlled in the shiny areas.

Not too sure about V2, Keith, but V1 is very good indeed. Reminds me of an old film, just about to go into a dream sequence, where everything starts getting soft and faded...if you know what I mean?

I wouldn't have recognised it as yours.. but it is very special that glow is really fantstic. I like the abstract knot shaped by the legs, too.

Hi Tony......no 'Orton' effect !!!.....just my own methods......basically just create a hi-key layer, with some added
Gaussian blur, & set the blend mode to 'Screen'....then adjust the opacity to suit......simple & straightforward !!!.Smile

Thanks for your interest !!.Grin
