Award Shortlist   

Let us entertain you!

By TrevBatWCC    
Just a few metres along Place Balmat in Chamonix from my previous upload were these street musicians playing jazz music, and looking at the lady on the right playing washboard, with a bit of skiffle thrown in! For those not old enough to remember skiffle, it was a style of music using a combination of manufactured and homemade or improvised instruments, popularised in Britain by Lonnie Donegan.
They did have CDs on sale, but Iíve no idea of the name of the band 📀🎵

After receiving a Guest Editor Award on my earlier upload of 'Chamonix in bloom', I find Iíve now received an Editors Choice Award on my 'Mont Blanc Ė a different view'. Iím gobsmacked, thatís a first for me in the 10 years Iíve been on EPZ! 😀

Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw, tweaked in Nik Collection's Viveza 2 and Photoshop Elements 14.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging 👍

Trev 😀

As I came across the thumbnail of your image, I said this is Trev I am sure
and now I understand it is your post processing program that is doing this extra work and separates your images from the rest

Keep going Trev
