Thanks everyone. David, with a totally straight face - I tweaked light in Levels, reduced Brightness and increased Contrast a tad (which does strengthen colour)and then partially desaturated the dark green top right because it was so prominent.
This coil is one of the best subjects I have found in years, I spent a long time on it! (Still got one upload to come).

Thanks again - it's our daughter's birthday next Wednesday. Anyway, table booked for this evening in Moro; Borough Market tomorrow morning, and I'll pretend that it's my normal weekly shopping experience. Might get some pictures, but they're not really the object of the exercise.

Oh do we have to be good?

Why can't we go?

Where are you going to?

Have a great time as I know you will.

We'll be good, well goodish.


Love the cable and your explanation, it's right up your rusty conduit if you see what I mean?

Moira I know that the horizontal position is where you like to be in bedrooms when you go away so no excuses..... oh I was just photographing the ceiling. Enjoy it.

wonderful tones, at first glance I thought it was a skein of very thick knitting wool because of the colours! Now I can see it as it is. Those colours are beautiful and the composition very pleasing. great image.
As for being good, we will try but you had better hurry back.

Eck, I'm jealous. Borough Market I mean. We didn' t have the chance on our last visit. I blame musical instruments myself. Mine of course.

What photo?

Sorry, sidetracked somewhat.
Wire rope has no business looking this good, very well taken and presented.

My first thought when I seen the thumbnail was that flavored licorice. Funny what the brain sees at first look. This is great Moira, simple but lovely. Have fun and take lots of pics to show us on your return.............Sandy
