Good morning all.

One from the archives I am afraid, I wanted to go out last night but as I was stung by a wasp my hand blew up like a balloon. Angry little critters, what do wasps actually do apart from ruin picnics?!!!

Any way Rant over Hope you like this one.

Kind Regards

James

Stunning wave action complements the light rays beautifully. B/w treatment just spot on IMHO. Why no votes yet?!??! I've no idea. Steve.

PS - Wasps are total b*******.

Wasps are dying off at this time of year and always seem to be bad tempered, I suppose we would be too.

Marvellous monochrome conversion here, the water movement is so nice and forms a great lead line into a superb image.

Wow Cheers mate really appreciate that after chatting to you last night I thought I would try a conversion without the use of any plugins.

Thanks again Paul

Mono at it's best, the movement in the water and the rays breaking through the clouds are quite spectacular, a top class image. Congrats on a well deserved EC as well. Rgds Paul

Wonderfully and simple composition
the black and white choice intensifies the drama and enables benefit from amazing shot without drawing attention to color.
Wonderful !!!
