Decided purposefully not to go for frame fillers, in fact only did a few real full in the face shots on the very last visit. It would have been easy to shoot a lot of stuff on the crop body and although no real environment to show I just prefer some space around the subject.

Another high ISO shot as the light dropped off quite quickly after about 2:30. And this was taken at 15:45.

To be honest really lucky with the weather as the initial forecast was not good.

I do like the space you have given this - perhaps a little oversaturated.!!

Cheers all.

Not sure why Brian as it has had standard processing of all my RAW files, but as I am viewing on a laptop can't can't really say one way or the other.

I would have to agree with Brian on the saturation, It looks very vibrant on my screen. Personally i would of toned it down a tad
