The coloured table

By helenlinda
Have just spotted that yesterday's upload is the current featured E2 photo ( my hour of fame will soon be over!!)as I upload the original.
Thanks for the very encouraging comments and particularly to Jenn for her User's Award.
I know that a strong graphic shot is not to everyone's taste, but I'm glad I gave it a viewing in its own right
This is with colour and the second I have played with a little.
Hope the weather will be reasonable so that we can all enjoy the bank holiday weekend
Thanks for looking

Love V2, not least because the colour enhances the slight curve in the bench seats and creates a 3-D look.

It is certainly to my taste as you will know!!! A strong graphic shot indeed Helen.I will stick to the original as I just prefer them to be ''as seen''.

Really like this, I like the fact that the colour is outside the fence giving a bleak sense of "imprisonment" within the fence- loving the shadows as well!

Thanks for showing the original, Helen, and I still think it has merit all of its own, being a very natural graphic, I like what you have done in V2 but prefer V1. Pity you couldn't re-align the paving stones, lol.

Thanks for the PM about my pic being the featured e2 photo, but unfortunately I missed it.

I wonder how long you had to wait for the shadows to be so closely aligned with the table. Well done for catching them at just the right time. I prefer V1, as No. 2 is a bit overdone for my taste.

strong effect
