Dragonfly

By dark_lord  
Or rather a wickerwork insect sculpture in the grounds of Attingham Park near Shrewsbury.
Moira's (mrswoolybill) type of wildlife as it doesn't move Smile

The colour is added as a Version justfor comparison.
Adjusting the Red, Yellow and Green sliders in Affinity gave a stronger effect than those in Nik for this image, something I wasn't ex[ecting so experimentation definitely pays off. But I used Nik for the vignette Smile

Thank you to everyone who commented or voted on The Clearing and to Ian (mac) for his UA.

Interesting about the NIK/Affinity comparison, I shall bear it mind.

The difference between the two versions is quite amazing, Keith.

I find the colour version has more punch to it, whereas the mono has very blocked-up shadows in the background. It also appears sharper, in the colour image, and I did not notice it was off the ground on a stick, in the mono.

I wanted it dark Ian, but it's interesting about the sharpness as I used the same settings.

Colour for me Keith ...seems to bring out the feel and tactile nature of the weaved hawker better !
it would have taken a while for someone to make that quite an art form ...
cheers walt
