Good Day to you all at ePz.

Thank you for taking the time out to view, comment and vote for my images of the wonderful Jay which I uploaded yesterday. A further thank you goes to: CarolAnnLauderdale (Carol) and Brandish (Martyn) for their User Awards.

Todays image was captured in the garden yesterday whilst observing this Gull gather nesting materials. When he came across this rather charming garden ornament he seemed to freeze and stood there seemingly waiting for the figure to come to life. I thought it would make an interesting image. Hope you like.

I hope that you all have a great day whatever you may be getting up to.

Regards Nathan GrinGrinGrin

Well observed, Nathan, and the conversion spot on. A young Anton Chekhov deriving inspiration for a play maybe?

Two super captures, Nathan, although the only difference I see in them is the white border around v1, which I prefer. Regards Martin

That's one thing about photography, there's a limitless amount of subjects and ways to photograph them. A very well seen image here, Nathan Smile Looks better with the border in V1, as we can see where the image ends and the background starts! Wink

One collecting, one reading, who is disturbing who?

Great capture, imaginative, works well in mono.

No. 1 Ver. for me, like the framing.
