C&C Welcome


Thanks for stopping by Smile Smile


~Alley~

Thanks for all your comments and clicks ....and the EC Pete

Means alot to me as Winston and his wife (Mary) took me under their wing and really looked after me when I was new in the village.

We had lost touch over the last couple of years or so after I had moved to another village.....and it was really great to get together again literally over last weekend Smile

Thats better but now i think i would like to remove the light on the strips of his left arm and darken the table a bit, then i would be totally happy with it.

As i said before it is a great image

Did go large and was in awe. Really like his little bit of a smile. He looks so relaxed. Aren't the elderly just the most wonderful to capture. He still has a boyishness about him when you look close. Excellent portrait............Sandy
