A group of guys standing around talking. Fellows from my neighbours wedding last year put into a different scene. Actually it's Scotty's Castle in California. Taken last year while we were in the U.S. But I enjoy mixing and matching my images. Seems to be a good practice.

A great capture, Sandy - I like very much the composition - This image is looking like a statue group - interesting effect and very well caught lighting

Best Regards Daniel

It certainly loks as if they are plotting something none too pleasant! Perhaps it is your choice of setting that makes it seem rather foreboding.
Excellent work, Sandy. LIke it a lot.
