We had a trip out to Whitby on Saturday, some of our children and some of their friends. Just had a play with a shot I caught of them all tucking into their fish and chips at the end of the day.
Btw, does the selective colouring of the windmill add anything, or just look a bit naff?
Quite a timeless feel to this shot
Lovely esp in B&W.
Lovely shot, very evocative.
(I personally don't like the selective colouring of the windmill; it distracts from the theme.)
Can't beat fish'n'chips - especially in Whitby...pity you weren't there at the same time I was, we might have crossed paths, as I did with Phil99 on here! A super quality image, as we can expect from you, Leigh, and an excellent subject for mono. I like the selective colouring.
A great photograph and creative finishing.
Warm wishes, Iain.
A very well captured shot , nice mono with the touch of colour bringing something to the image
Lovely mono image. Like the candid appearance of this. Really like it in mono. I don't find the selective colour adds anything. I think I might like it better left mono too.........Love this shot though......Sandy
nice capture & mono conversion Leigh
As the title suggests the focus of the shot for me is on the kids tucking in to their fish & chips & I think the selective colouring is more destracting than enhancing.
nice timing with the two little ones concentrating on trying to spear a chip togerther .
Like the subjects Leigh and the mono works well, don't need the selective colour bit IMO
Lovely capture Rebecca - which suites mono really well. Personally, I wouldn't have bothered with the windmill as it's not the main focus of the image - which to my eyes is the space between the two kiddies on the left - and is more of a distraction than an enhancement.
That aside, this really is a wonderful shot.
Agree with Sandy and Ashley.
You want people to concentrate on the figures themselves, not the thingy on the floor.
Other than the windmill,which needs to go altogether IMO...I think it's a great image.........Marcus
Thanks everyone, and I think I definitely get the message that the windmill does not enhance the shot! Got to agree. It just happened to be there, and I couldn't resist messing.
Any chance of uploading a colour version of this Leigh - it looks like the kind of image that would do well with a cross processing treatment.
It's a lovely candid in its own right, with or without the windmill.
Cross processing!? I thought I was doing well converting to mono! Thanks guys.
Excellent candid, windmills naff......
Hi Leigh ,On first glance ,i didn't notice the windmill at all, as my eyes went straight to the kids tucking in...lol
Now to me mono is the correct selection for this image ,i don't know about others but when i view b&w images ,my mind does the colours for me, maybe im odd !!!!!in that respect ...lol
Its a great image and one to be proud of.
Drop the selective colouring and it's a cracker.
The magic wand is fine, keeps the kids quiet while they eat. Nice to see sharing working so well.
Thanks for all the feedback. Much appreciated.
Nicely caught moment. (Sorry to add yet more windmill comment but I think I'd have cloned it out completely.)
A bit late I know. Excellent candid shot of the kids. Spoilt a litle by the windmill which should be removed from the picture or the youngest kid could have held it and been more interested in it than the fish n' chips....Phil
