Thanks for C&C for the Dawn Michelle treatment pictures. I will take a break from them now, but have more to come.
Something I've not tried before. I wasn't sure how to put it together as generally people "read" a picture from left to right , so she has arrived before she set out! However, she is walking from right to left. So ...............is this the wrong way round?

I took this in the fog and frost, a few minutes after my crocus image on 25.2.08. So no blue sky, and I don't want one as it would completely change the feel of this isolated figure moving silently across the empty park.

In some ways its almost mono, but the frost effect would be lost without the hint of green.

I welcome your comments as I would like to improve on this and try it on another occassion too.

Thanks for looking
Helen

I'm adding a flipped version this evening along with a mono onee.
Its interesting looking at the flipped version, because I KNOW its wrong!!! You just can't cross the park this way!! However if I look at it and forget where I took the photo its a different story!
Thanks for these suggestions.

This is very clever and very original too Helen. Not sure if it's the 'wrong way round' - it works for me as it is. It's a very thought provoking sequence and seems to tell a story, which I like - very impressive.
regards
Robin

You could mirror the frames if you wished but I certainly feel they are alright as they are and tell a story.

Very interesting idea. I like the way the frames widen as the story progresses. For me I think it would work well if each picture was flipped so that she was walking left to right, but it would be a totally different image. It would be interesting to see for comparison...

My eye followed the larger image to the smaller one, so didn't have a problem.
Happy Birthday, hope it's a good one.

Very enjoyable and original image. 100% agree about the sky (it only affects two of the four frames anyway); I think it might work in mono, but that is almost by the way. My first viewing was like Hilary's; then I read your description; now I can treat it like one of these mouseover thingies and look from right to left, then return to the right, so the lady is walking into the scene then exiting in reverse gear!
Super work.
Bill

No its not my birthday, but it was only a couple of weeks ago, so I don't mind the belated wishes!
Bill I hope in reverse gear she walks slowly, not like rewinding the video!!

good shots & clever presentation : you have to "read" them the opposite of normal, and it shortens in a very pleasant way...
