A quick view of ardbeg77's recent activity.

  • Treviso, Italy

    Lovely light and colours here. And like the way the perspective draws you towards the diners at the far end of the colonnade. Very nicely seen.

    Would it be worth just shaving a small amount of the left (and bottom to balance if necessary) to remove the pot plant in the bottom left corner? Just a thought.

  • Reflections - Birmingham Grand Central

    Some really interesting patterns in this - it's a great shot. Like the high contrast. My only suggestion might be to do a variation with the cone removed (by cropping - not digital jiggery pokery Smile) to create a true abstract without the recognisable object. Not saying it would be better - just different. I guess the advantage of true abstract is you can then play with the orientation freely (i.e., flip, invert) to give the most pleasing composition.

    Anyhow - great spot Smile!

  • Through Two Windows 2

    Didn't see the original to this, but like the off centre positioning of the diamond. Really well seen abstract, with some great patterns and contrasting tone. Is that a figure in the background, or just some anomaly in the glass? Either way I like the way it adds to the intrigue!

    Like this a lot. The range of textures and tones makes the eye wander quite widely over the picture.

  • Shaved

    Really like this. Good choice of pencil colour and background, and the texture and reflections give it a nice abstract feel.

    Great light, Love the bold composition, and the use of all that lovely space.

  • Meltdown

    Love this! Mysterious and intriguing, with some really interesting shapes and lighting. Sets the mind wandering (although not towards a bus window...Smile!) Frozen figures in ice, perhaps. Has a sci-fi feel to it. Very creative - nicely done.

  • Like Mari, I've not been around much recently, but fully intend catching up with your latests stuff. You've got a great eye, and a really unique view of things - and most importantly you're never afraid to do something different. Always a great source of both encouragement and inspiration Smile

    Keep them coming Smile
