I absolutely adore this shot! The red of the traffic light complements the post box so well! The lighting is fantastic, love it! Click,click!

Was a bit daunting putting the first one up there - but I'm no longer a virgin on the site!

Having studied it a bit - I like it a lot - BUT - something is wonky ??

Having studied it further - it's the post box - and why not - it's probably been there 80+- ???? years

very effective shot and manipulation

The red in stop light kind of rounds it off!

Your 1st input ?? - keep going!

A fave of mine for the day.
Great use of desat and love the way both the traffic light and the post box have retained colour.

Cheers dave

It actually is that wonkey - must have been hit by a late-running posty once! I think it's pretty old too - it's got "GR" on the side, so that makes it Georgean.

PS - just stumbled on this site tonight whilst looking for Ring Flashes.... amazing what Google brings back sometimes.

It's an excellent idea, think I'll be around for a while.... so long as you're all kind!

Great image, the overall result is eye catching and well thought out. I have used this technique myself a few times, and on the right image it can work wonders.

How you resisted the temptation to tweak the red of the post box I don't know(g) I would have myself...I can't resist emphasising the important, striking features of a shot. I'd have lifted the post box and the traffic light too, wouldn't have been able to resist it(g) Great shot...full marks and you landed the coveted EC too..well doneSmile
