Lovely Silk

By GavMc
Another image from Dubai, this being from the Textiles Market. These are folds of coloured silk stacked up to be cut to length and sold.

Dubais Textiles Market is a wonderful fusion of colours and textures, as typified by this macro shot. You can see this sort of thing in some of the Asian bazaars and shops in the UK e.g. in Bradford or Birmingham, but nothing quite like what you find in Dubai, or indeed in Pakistan or India..

The image is pretty much as I took it. A slight crop, a marginal lighten. Oh yes and a border. Im probably going a bit nuts on my black borders at the moment after MoWizs helpful tips on doing them! So please tell me to stop if Im going OTT!

Any general borders advice would be very welcome. For example would this look better without a border, a different type/width/colour?

Good weekend all..

Hi Gav - you're trying your hand at lots of different things - an abstract this time! I think it might work better without the border. John
