Just like to throw the odd curveball in to my p/f every now and then.

This was more of a test for the lens I've just bought more than anything. Had a walk around the city centre at lunchtime yesterday, and spotted this chap, just waiting outside the pub.

1 shot, converted 3 times, run through Photomatix, and then a bit of PS skullduggery (guesswork more than anything else!!) to bring this final result. Guess that makes me a street photographer now!! Wink

Hope you all have a great weekend.

It's certainly a very striking shot and requires the viewer to ask questionsa bout what he's doing, who is he waiting for etc!
The processing is excellent and really enhances the shot.

I really like this one - the sense of anticipation. I'd like to see a version with a little less PS work on it though.

Many thanks one and all for your kind comments. I didn't really know how this would so, as it sure ain't my normal fare! Far outstripped my expectations, so thank you.

I have a B & W version of this so I may post that one as well at some point.
