taken last night.

I was heading west fr home and i could see all these dark brooding clouds above me, but where the sun was setting it was clear, but the gods of traffic lights were intent on holding me up with red lights, i eventually headed for open space, and found this abandoned farm building, with rubble strewn everywhere. I had no change of clothing on me, nothing spectacular to wear for this, s i wore what i had on already, which was a shame really but i will be going back there for more images if we get the right conditions.

Due to all the rubble there, the light was amazing, even after the sun had set, as here, the light was superb!

I have manipulated it a bit, i added some X-processing, flattened it, and added a Multiply layer, to really bring out the sky, then added a layer mask to brighten me up.

Super processing and pose, really gritty style and very well suited to the environment, possibly one of the best so far. although the horizon is a bit off for me.

Great legs!! Grin To be honest, I didn't like this when I first looked at it, but the more I look, the more I like it - it's very 'otherworldly' with that brooding sky. I think your blonde hair blends a little too well with the rubble behind your head, so almost gets lost with the similarity of tone, and your black dress also gets lost at the left hip/right elbow with the holes in the rubble behind. I keep thinking that the red hue on the stones and the foreground don't look natural, but on reflection it does suit the overall feeling of the image. Interesting one.

Would you believe me if i told you that the Fens were on a tilt last night, hence wonky horizon? I didnt think so lol was hoping no one would notice, i didnt until uploading it, will have to work on tomorrows upload then Smile

And thank you Tanya, im gonna pick out an outfit later which might compliment that scene better, but which one i do not know, black is a no no, and red is a bit obvious, and i have little red clothing at all, s i dont know, maybe purple, something really unexpected Smile i agree with what you say about the hair being lost, tomorrows upload should be a bit better, i chose this first cos i love the whole composition, the colours, tis a shame about the wonky horizon lolxx

Wonky Fens?! Now there's a thought ... Grin

Anyway, outfit - how about a colour that will complement that lovely turquoise 'whatever it is' on the right hand side of the rubble? (Right hand as you're looking at it as a viewer ...) Blues are tranquil, which might well balance out the red 'Mars-like' atmosphere; purple, being closer to red, would be more harmonious. But it depends on the kind of image you want to create. Good luck with it.
