So is this what you got upto in Cornwall? Playing cards with yourself? More interesting than watching the Brit Awards eh??? or is this your new place by any chance (hence the clock not yet fixed to the wall, ah I get it!)

OK I'll be serious for a moment. I love the idea, I clicked on the thumbnail not realising it was you and thought oh it's Kay!!!

There is a large space above the 2 card players which could be either cropped out or you could have eliminated it by tiliting the camera down that would have included your feet too.

Black and White is not easy to get right and this unfortuntely is a little on the flat side, I can't see any whites in the picture which is what black and white needs (even a low key image), the playing cards definitely need to be white, try playing around with levels in the first instance and then have another go at the channel mixer and finally tweek the contrast/brightness.

I also feel the hand of cards are a little far away from the table (I presume the hand is the third card player so therefore needs to be closer to the table). The idea is superb and with a little tweeking you've got a winner or should that be a winning hand!

See you soon!

Andrew.

This is a great idea that has been brilliantly stitched together. It was the best pic of the night on Monday. My first thoughts on seeing it today were the same as Andrews that the mono part is a little flat. I find that it always helps to check the levels of every layer before finally flatenning. It's still a great pic. Andy
