A couple of shots from Epping Forest last Sunday.

v1 - I was playing with levels and curves and quite liked the effect.

v2 - a similar shot but from a reverse angle, sadly without the bench, and as it should look re WB.

A bit of a shock for the system after the heat of Australia but just as beautiful.

Normal Oz service will resume after this short break.

Have a peaceful Sunday, Dave

Nice to see you slipping back into your comfy zone again, big time .....cold, wet, windy and Britain. Leave the heat, bikinis, sunshine and strange customs to those that deserve them...convicts etc ! Wink

Two wonderful images, but V2 's a stunner.

Good morning,

I didn't think this was your's, not being sun, sea, sand and girls in itsy bitsy bikini's (notice I didn't say Yellow Polka Dot, that would be showing my age). So you've finally plucked up courage to brave the British weather and come up with a good image (as usual). Works well Dave especially with the wonkey donkey bench. Grin

V2 is my favourite. I find my eye is drawn to the reddish browns of the leaves, which in V2 works rather well due to their placement but in V1 takes the eye almost out the image.
