I like the silhouette of the duck.
Nice work Rob...

Thanks very much Jouko, Ade, Terry and Cesie :o)

I wonder why I bother uploading my images to this site sometimes! This image has only had 12 people viewe it in an hour and a quarter of it being uploaded...it's just not worth it anymore. epz has become a very frustrating place to be lately :o(

Lovely work Rob, so serene. Love the tones and mist. As for that duck - well it's the icing on the cake and would be a completely different picture without it, mind you you probably wouldn't have taken it!

Phil.

BTW... I agree with your comments above, can be frustrating can't it.

Hi Rob

Sorry just got back from Delaware and I am exhausted, been driving over 18 hours for two days. Wife has more energy than me that is for sure! I think the absence of activity or the reduction of activity on EPZ has to do with its vacation time for many folks or it is backlash from all the click controversy, oh well, live and let live! Wink

I have no comments for improvement for the shot, I like it the way it is, has enormous potentail for various mods because of the way you shot it. The picture is clear, low light and color, beautiful as it stands and open perfectly for mod. Spot on! Click!!!

Greg

P.S.

I did a quick mod just to bring out a hint of detail in the sky and a couple of other things, hope you do not mind.

Beautiful shot Rob. Love the colour and composition.

I think the activity on epz has fallen off quite a bit. Or lots of members are on holiday, or whatever!

Stewart.

Hi Rob, how are you? As for improving this image all it needs is a frame and to be hung on my wall then it would be perfect!! Hope you are well Jane

Thanks everyone, you are all very kind. I don't think the lack of comments or wiews was anything to do with the holidays, as there was an image about three away from mine that had about 20 comments when mine had about two. I think it's just a case of it being a very dull thumbnail, it's a shame thumbnails are such a critical part of getting peoples attention.

Greg, thankyou so much for the mod, looks good, and thanks for the explanation on how you did it :o)

Hey Rob,
Sorry, looking at this a bit late...Smile
The mods are fantastic and Greg's version is really good!
Luv the "A Bit Warmer", you should've posted these on their own, they are excellent!
Looking at the original now, may try a mod...?
Hope you're having a nice weekend!!
Cheers,
Suzan Smile

Thanks Suzan, the mods were linked by me to other peoples images in their portfolios, because they hadn't originally uploaded their image as modifiable....hope you can work out what i'm on about LOL!
Thanks for your mod btw, quite different :o)
