lifesnapper Does woolybill1

By lifesnapper  
Hi all and welcome to the first of my 'rundown to Christmas' series, 'lifesnapper does'. As requested by Will', I'm kicking off with one of the great characters of EPZ, woolybill 1. He may well have cropped this image differently, and maybe darkened the BG a little more, so just for the fun of it, I'm inviting mod's on the whole series, so that my victims can show what they would've done to change the image, or for others to have a bit of fun with it too Smile
I have only chosen Tog's who have a distinctive style or ongoing theme to simulate in this series, but as Dave87 has already said, please PM me if you would rather I DIDN,T feature them in this way.

My very best to you all,

John Smile

P.S. Next up ? it could be YOU! Wink

An excellent effort, John, I shall have to think long and hard about a mod for this one! (No promises, mind Blush)
Black & white, shallow dof and focus fading nicely away, a specular highlight in the background somewhere - that's me, pretty much. Although wine glasses might by some be considered more appropriate WinkWinkWink
I shall be back later to peruse; and who knows?????
This is going to be a GREAT series, I can tell!

I really like this. Its so vibrant and , well, alive. It reminds me of the best of the grey painters of our time, the ones that paint in grey. Its organic and tactile, and I just want to reach out with a box of matches, just as I did when visiting Notre Dame. A fine social statement. showing just how few people can afford to light candles. I wouldn't touch the verticals, they are fine as they are, though Im sure some will say otherwise. If I was to be a bit picky, I would be, but not now.

Hi John,

This is a great idea you've come up's fun, interesting and I've a feeling it's going to be quite addictive Grin

Another plus for me...thanks for pointing me in the direction of Mr Woolybill's pf (Excellent PF Bill Grin) - I've enjoyed looking at his images and am looking forward to you introducing toggers whose pf's I've not checked out yet GrinGrin:

Already looking forward to your next upload.

P.S. I'd do a Mod if I could but my PS skills (or lack of) won't allow Sad

If packed with a bottle of Red Wine - this Woolybill forgery - had a good chance of making it through UK Border Agency down at the Dover Docks but the white circle in the background assumed to be lens flare gave the game away. Works a treat in mono, this low light shot is so Woolybill.
