Thanks for all the support on my last images of Jen and cheers Pete for the HC, much appreciated. I've got quite a few more but I'll save them for another day and move on to a simple window light image I took as soon as we got there, thought it would work well in mono.

Wet and oh so windy up here at the moment, hope things are fine where you are.

Thanks for looking.

Darren.

Love the simplicity of this Darren. It's the little things like her necklace, those eye lashes and the cobweb on the window that keep your eye moving around the image, and the lighting works so well in mono.

Hi Darren
I know you are a strobist specialist but natural lighting takes some beating does'nt it Smile
Where was it taken, an old factory ?
Very well done.

Hi Harry, you're dead right when the natural light is good it can't be beaten. This actually taken in one of the empty old rooms at the Winter Gardens in Morecambe.

Thanks for the comment.
