Had hoped to see a mysterious monk or a ghost of Christmas Past or something. Instead I just got a slightly overweight tourist.
Possibly the last of the Mont St Michel series.
All comments and crits as ever.

Excellent composition and perspective. The figure (fat or not) adds scale. I think I would prefer to see this as straight BW though as I don't think the toning adds much to the shot IMO Smile

Good positioning all the same. Cracking compsition and the toning tops it all off nicely.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

Actually Tony, she had to walk backwards about 6 yards in Photoshop to get where she is now.

I Duotoned it to keep it in the sort of mini series I have been doing of Mont St Michel. I suppose logically they should all have the same toning, but daahh, who wants to be a conformist.

Wonderfully composed, and I love the reference to the overweight tourist. It might have been a ghost of one, of course.

I like your choice of angle and the repeating arches, the figure gives a good sense of scale. I like the presentation too!

The duotoning works well for me Chris, especially in the large version. Funnily enough I have to say I'd prefer it without the figure at all but, as I'm probably in a minority of one here(!).....
Good stuff.
