Thank you so very much for all your wonderful comments and votes following yesterdays upload. A further mention going to: Lottiesphotography(Charlie) Nigevel(Nigel) MrsBass(Heather) and Craggwildlife(David) for presenting me with their coveted User Awards.

Todays upload is again something outside of my comfort zone, however it is something which I rather like, especially the range of blue and grey like hues.

I hope that you all have a wonderful day ahead, for me I am off to see the shrink in Sevenoaks, so I shall be out for a little while. However I shall endeavour to view and comment on as many of your images as possible before bedtime.

Regards as always NathanGrinGrinGrin

The wide open lens has given a crisp shallow layer of focus and the blues are as ever beautiful.
Lovely image Nathan.

Colour tone is definitely the main theme of this capture and does not distract from focus in fact the
blue inhances the fibre of the rope!. Well done Nathan.

The first thing to worry about is the focus..and that is spot on. The next thing to worry about are the colour and tones...and they are spot. In fact I would say the image is spot.
