Monet & Friends V and VI

By saltireblue    
The final two images from this digital exhibition before I move on to something new. I feel tmost of he images from this exhibition are a bit much of a muchness, so have therefore decided to combine these two into one upload instead of inflicting yet another upload from here on you all...

Many thanks to all of you who have shown an interest in this series in whatever way - all comments, awards and votes are much appreciated.

Thanks for bothering.

Excellent Malc

I've looked at both versions Malc.. and I can't say I prefer one over the other, they are both excellent. The light and contrast are striking!

Like the foreground silhouetting... clearly Monet had many friends 😁😁

all in all, a beautiful finale to this outstanding series

A fitting end to this excellent exhibition series, Malc.
Monet; my favourite artist of all time.

All the lonely people, where do they all come from?
This strikes me as city folk looking at themselves. There's a portrait crop to be had from the right side of the frame...

The opener creates the stronger first-glance impression but both versions offer an intriguing combination of reality in the shadows overlooked by highlit art. The central couple in V1 look almost to be morphing from one into the other.

Two fine images here, Malc, and like how the visitors seem to merge into the artwork. Think the lead just wins for me - both must be viewed large! 😃👍

Two excellent photos to end the series Malc, I can't really choose a favourite. It looks to have been a fascinating exhibition, I'd loved to have seen it.

I saw similar images, when the Toulouse-Lautrec exhibition was on in Edinburgh, a few years ago. I have enjoyed, viewing your interpretation of this exhibition, Malc

It's hard to take ones eyes off the fellow lit up in the middle. Lots of questions went through my head about him. Guess that's what I love in an image. I do love this one as much as your other one.

Lovely finale Malc. Like both images and as an inveterate people watcher it fascinates me how different people view the artwork. Some up close, nose almost touching and others standing back with their audio commentary running.

The best bits for me are those deep blacks and the lighting of the central couple in your version. That right hand side of the frame has got the award!

The event was beautifully captured Malc. Love your lead shot with all that iconic art on display...

Two excellent efforts young Malc. I do prefer the version though. (hence the gong). Can't say why
I like it better than the lead image, only that i spent more time looking at it. Both are best viewed

Good use of silhouettes in both versions - excellent mono - love 'em.

Two striking images and, for reasons I haven't really worked out yet, I think it's the version that just has the edge. I may change my mind later!!! Hardly matters - both pictures are superb. 😀
