Grab shot from the path along the eastern side of Derwentwater in the English Lake District. I couldn't resist it, just as I couldn't resist a sepia version for good measure!

185mm, 1/250th sec. @ f5.6, ISO 200.

I was thinking the same as Jenn as those lines when using a black background are a bit harsh.
A great shot with perfect exposure.

Sepia version is nice, - odd how pictures of people walking away into the light are so engaging...

Nicely framed by the natural greenery, the colour wins hands down Bill.

Good Morning all (Part 2) Thanks for comments and votes from the night shift - just time for a rapid upload of white-frame-less Version 3 by popular request. Must dash out now, busy day ahead and gigging tonight. Normal service etc etc etc Smile

Version 3 without the border is my favourite, closely followed by the sepia version.
Three different and varied images of the same subject.

hard to resist a grab shot like this, I know that full well. I like how V2 brings out detail in the shadows but at the same time it takes away some of the mystery. I lean towars the color verion and odd as it seems to me, I like it more without the stroke.

Does an excellent job of running oneís eye into a picture this gent, loved that light running down the wet cobbled street in the past Bill - and this shot also works extremely well for me. Confront us humans with some light at the end of the tunnel and thatís where our viewing eye will go. Works a real treat for me and you have also captured the magical number of three (the little dog is a bonus). Enjoyed this a bundle, well spotted and a pleasure to view.

Dave.

Reminds me of the time when our kids were still kids, every time when we passed through such a shady place they started chanting: II: We are in a tunnel... :II endlessly. Obviously they are not the only ones with that thought.
