Underneath the arches 2

By mrswoolybill
The same subject as last Saturday's shadows , and cropped from the same original frame.
I prefer the more abstract composition of the first upload, but this one has greenish tones in the stonework that I rather like.
The answer to yesterday's Exeter Riddle is beer, by the way. The riddle describes the harvest and brewing processes. Albert jumped in straight away with the solution, he clearly knows about these things... Wink
I have another Riddle to come next week.
Thanks for looking,

I think I prefer this version, Moira, wonderful tones, love the curves of the shadows, and the touch of greens. Caol

I agree with you Moira the cropped abstract composition certainly had me bowled over, however the light and colour seems to be more intense in this variant...

Nathan, the previous upload was from the centre of the under-structure, this is the edge, so the light was brighter, not just the reflected light from the water surface.
Cheers everyone, have a good weekend.

I agree re green tones Moira and do prefer this version.

A brain teeter for sure, I thought, a car tyre, then saw the foliage and then realise I was seeing it from the wrong perspective again.
Great find Moira, I might have fallen in the water shooting this one.

I missed last week's version which is beautiful. I think I preferred it to this version, but they're both excellent!
I've responded to your question on my image. Smile

Amazing subject matter Moira, the colour's really do stand out in this version, but my fav' of the two, has to be the first one.

Again, wonderful colours, textures and ligh play, I like the green tones in this one but prefer the first version for its complete abstractness, if that's a word? Smile
