Nae day Sae dark

By cats_123  

Quote:Nae day Sae dark; nae wud sae bare
Nae grun sae stour wi’ stane;
But licht comes through; a sang is there;
A glint o’ grass is green.
Wha hasna thol’d his thorter’ hours
And kent, whan they were by,
The tenderness o’ life that fleurs
Rockfast in misery?

Recognised this immediately in the thumbnail, one of my favourite examples of public art. You've captured the relationship between the two figures perfectly, and the relationship between them and the street.

Hi Jeff, nice shot. I put the image into PHotoshop camera raw and painted a little colour for the sky, rather than the dull grey. I also used the adjustment brush on the pavement with a -0.70 on the exposure to reduce the slight glare. I also adjusted the highlights, shadows and clarity. I went into Photoshop, copied the background layer, went into the layers panel - blend mode - multiply 70%. Hope you like it.

Hi Stephen..yes, looks good. I did try to reduce exposure, but didn't like the effect that ViewNX gave me (haven't had a chance to put it through Lightroom yet). The sky is certainly much better Smile

That's Soutar's poem, isn't it Jeff?
I do like the way your pov has forshortened the distance between the two figures, it looks much more compact than in reality.
