In the Spotlight ...

By sut68      
One from last year on Honeymoon in the fab company of Big Phil ... cheers mate Smile

The light was coming and going on the distant hills and we were suddenly blessed with a touch on those middle-ground trees for a brief while.

Colour version added as a variant ... mono version just concentrates the eye on the shapes and textures IMHO Grin

Cheers for getting this far,

Defintely better in mono, I reckon, Paul!
The brightly lit hillside at the left is a tad distracting in this composition. Perhaps burning it down or cropping it out may lessen its impact?
It's a beaut, despite a very minor niggle Grin

Cheers mate ... didn't bother me that much but I can see where yer coming from and may have a look at that - that said, unlikely to see print this one so I may save my energy Wink

Take care mate,

Bit torn on this one Paul. The blue tarps kind of require the mono conversion as they are too distracting in the colour, but the flip side is that it seems a shame to lose the colours in the trees being picked out by the light.

But then again, maybe you are right and it is a fine conversion.

Definitely would Phil ... cheers big guy!!!

Know what you mean Neil, I could dial out some of the blue on the tarps but as it probably won't see the light of day in print it may be a fruitless exercise Grin

Cheers all, enjoy the weekend Smile
