Superb image! I wonder what it would look like with building on the left cropped out just to concentrate the eye onto the ball? Awesome shot though!Smile

Interesting what one comes across at that Festival, Sarah: I rather like the selective toning applied in V 1.
Sorry to hear about your problem.......I can empathise with you having had back pain for many weeks now. Take care.

The selective toning works very well, Sarah, like it.

The figure in V1, and particularly the reflection in the ball, seem to have more substance and depth. Beautiful image, perfectly composed and taken.

V1 is very subtle indeed. While I tend to use toning not dissimilar to your V2 I reckon V1 is even better.

I was sorry to hear about your ankle - hope the recovery isn't too extended.

Good morning and many thanks for your kind comments, appreciated!
Franko59, yes I agree about the crop/ball etc. I do have a couple that focus more on the ball but you'll have to go back quite a few pages in my PF to find them Smile

Great shot Sarah find myself inspecting the reflections in the ball, very intruiging.

Hope the ankle is better soon.

Oh dear, sorry to hear you a bad ankle, Sarah Sad A super composition and capture here, and think V1 with a subtle bit of colour is my fave Wink
Trev Smile

Love the processing on V1 Sarah, a very good view point too.
So sorry to hear you have a dodgy Ankle, and I hope it mends very soon.

Sorry to read of your ankle Sarah, and hope you make a full recovery. I like her expression, and the detail in the reflection.

I prefer v1 with the blue tint as it adds some "blue" effect to the reflection of the sky in the globe.

Both very good indeed Sarah, think I prefer V1 on this occasion, hope the ankle mends soon,

The subtle hues of V1 just about wins the day, Sarah, but that said v2 is no worse.Smile

I once saw a human statue in Barcelona (where there are dozens) having a smoke break sitting on the box that was his pedestal. A little girl going past said in a very indignant tone for her age, "Mummy, he's no good I can see him moving!"Grin

Hope your ankle let you get out nad about this weekend.
