On Target

By dathersmith  
Another from my 'Mod' series at the old papermill. The weather was very changable with rain one minute and clear skies the next, as the sun went down the colour was fantastic and gave the impression a bomb had just gone off behind us. We had to make use of it so mooved the scooter to get the sky in the background, hope you like it Smile

Same lighting setup as the others, 2 Speedlights triggered by Pocket Wizards.

Thanks for looking, hope your weekend was good.

You're getting some serious contrast and colours in these shots, I love them! The idea, simple, but very effective. This set really works. Cracking images

Good lighting and pose too Darren, but for me I would be tempted to clone some the golden clouds to reduce that blue area of sky at bit at it draws the eye too much.
Just a suggestion.

Thanks guys.

Richard, I agree with what you're saying and appreciate you taking the time to comment. I'm not a big fan of cloning things into a shot (and I lack the skill) but maybe a vignette would help here.


Super stuff as usual Darren. I love the colours, the sky and theh reflection in the puddle. I think they'd also work well in b/w.
