Just been playing with some old images as I've been stuck at home for nearly two weeks with a wrecked ankle, no new images Sad Hope to get out this weekend, that's if it ever stops raining!

This one's from the Edinburgh Festival

Thank you as always for your time, your thoughts/comments are very welcome.

Superb image! I wonder what it would look like with building on the left cropped out just to concentrate the eye onto the ball? Awesome shot though!Smile

Interesting what one comes across at that Festival, Sarah: I rather like the selective toning applied in V 1.
Sorry to hear about your problem.......I can empathise with you having had back pain for many weeks now. Take care.
Ronnie.

Hi Sarah J, a great capture, but I prefer the cooler tones of V1

The figure in V1, and particularly the reflection in the ball, seem to have more substance and depth. Beautiful image, perfectly composed and taken.

V1 is very subtle indeed. While I tend to use toning not dissimilar to your V2 I reckon V1 is even better.

I was sorry to hear about your ankle - hope the recovery isn't too extended.

Good morning and many thanks for your kind comments, appreciated!
Franko59, yes I agree about the crop/ball etc. I do have a couple that focus more on the ball but you'll have to go back quite a few pages in my PF to find them Smile

Great shot Sarah find myself inspecting the reflections in the ball, very intruiging.

Hope the ankle is better soon.

I prefer v1 with the blue tint as it adds some "blue" effect to the reflection of the sky in the globe.

The subtle hues of V1 just about wins the day, Sarah, but that said v2 is no worse.Smile

I once saw a human statue in Barcelona (where there are dozens) having a smoke break sitting on the box that was his pedestal. A little girl going past said in a very indignant tone for her age, "Mummy, he's no good I can see him moving!"Grin

Hope your ankle let you get out nad about this weekend.
