I like what you have done, but I think I prefer the original colours.

For me the digital enhancement has worked quite well.

Not sure about that diagonal line across the image Wink
but I suspect I may also have many like that.

Can you recall what shutter speed you used as there does not appear to be any movement in the kite.

I really like the colours of the main image! The blue tones make it lose impact.

Well done Stephen, I like the manipulation... and the original too

Thanks for your comments and observations. Your words and thoughts mean so much and I value them highly.

I don't like the diagonal line in the image either ( it is a string from a nearby kite) but liked the shape, texture and "movement" of the kite so much that I ignore it.

The digital manipulation of the image within the frame was very much trial and error (don't ask I can't remember!)

Shooting Mode: Manual Exposure
Tv( Shutter Speed ): 1/400

Great capture and I love the treatment.
Even though I like the blue sky, this treatment really shows the kite off well.

Stephen, this is visually very creative and I'm enjoying the work you have done. Until people mentioned the diagonal line I don't think I would have noticed it... easy to remove though if you felt so inclined.

I like it! Mike

So beautiful capture. Love this type of kite... its movement effect and the contrast with the sky. Love it in all aspects.

Very impresive picture . but that dioganal line in the backround is pulling the eye which easily can be moved out. Yes the colour is like duo tone effect which I used to do in the darkroom in colourvir toner in early days. So the border is pleasently presented.

very imaginative plate; has a modern/abstract feel I like; looks almost like a flying creature, the hat of a witch, so you see > very imaginative with great background. click
