Conversation in a Dutch cemetery 2

By mrswoolybill
Rende and Bill. Still talking above the sculpture... But landscape format gives a different feel.
I liked Sandyís comment yesterday, It looks like the little figures are waving their arms at the 2 men saying look at me, look at me. And the guys never pay attention to them they are too involved in their conversation. Thatís what Iím seeing too..
And before you ask, yes these do work in b&w. That will follow as a separate upload one day.
Thanks for looking,
Edit - Now go and have a look at Rende's Conversation piece , for the Lensbaby view of the world.

Thanks for your support, Ricky. I have a few more to come some time but I shall give these a rest tomorrow, I think it's time for a change.

Love these two, Moira, I think the little people are cheering at the comments the guys are making! Carol
Another good one from this spot, men do like to rattle on don't they?

I think I like this format even more than yesterday's. Although I don't remember what we were talking about, it must have been very interesting Wink
As a companion piece I've uploaded my lensbaby take on the (by now) famous sculpture.

Like them both. V2 has the colours and feel of a Braque.

Thanks everyone, I've added a link to Rende's beautiful upload in the narrative above.
Edit - Thanks Tel, Braque was a name that I was trying to remember.

Excellent set Moira, I think the landscape format actually suits this image a little better IMHO, two men talking and ignoring the crowd (typical as my wife would say Smile )

At least I know these two guys well enough Moira,that they actually do take some pics,and not spend all their time prattling on like two fish wifeys !! However,I do hope they remembered to blow the dust of their camera sensors before they got down to business again !!
Good shots.

Another two excellent images, Moira - I like both equally, V1 for the way the figures appear to be waving at the two men, and V2 for the different lighting on each of the figures, which appear almost 3D against the blurred background.

According to Bill I carry everything but the kitchen sink in there but oops, I forgot the reflector.

Haha, I was routed here from Rende's lensbaby upload and I have to go back there now, it's like an endless loop in .Net C#, ironic! All of them look amazing, yours, the previous uploads and Rende's lensbaby... well done to all

Intriguing little figures - and you've certainly captured some beautiful light on them.

Two humorous candids Moira, it looks like Rende and Bill are causing quite a stir in Lilliput! This looks like one place where the saying "Quiet as the grave" doesn't apply judging by the animated actions of the little people!
