V1 would have been my choice Pamela - I don't know how big the gardener is but you have made him appear to be overseeing the project. Great title Smile
V4 is quite striking in shape - may benefit from a little more light to give him the metallic look that the others have. Did you add the sky ???

Four superb compositions - maybe a slight preference for V3, for the foliage frame.

Thanks so much for your visits. It's interesting to see what your preferences are.
BRIAN: Yes, I added the sky to V4, well spotted. The sky was so bland on the day. You're right about a bit more work on the head, but I'd probably have to go back to square one. What would you do?

Graceland's certainly changed since i last saw him Pamela what on earth has he done to his hair! lol He looks like the grim reaper of the gardening world

Has to be V4. The sky didn't really help much, but you did pretty well with what was there. He's such a brilliant subject though, isn't he? I sympathise, because it was hot and hazy when I was there and my skies, and the domes, blasted out completely... Carol

Now I know why the Mistress of the house has all these romantic assignations with the gardener, in all these Mills and Boons books the wife reads !! But after he has finished in this garden,I doubt he will have the energy for anything else !!
And Pamela,I do tell porky pies,but NEVER where rust is concerned !!

Great shots, but I think V's 2 and 4 are my favourites. I'm a sucker for blue, so V4's sky really appeals to me. Smile

Thanks everyone.
BRIAN: Many thanks for the PM.
EDMUND: Does it really look like graceland?
CAROL: The domes must be a nightmare in the sunshine.
MICK: Sorry about revealing the secret of the gardener.
JENN: Thanks.....missed it.
Fine set

Hi PJ, Loke TrevB, I'd not noticed his dangly bit, it must've been a really windy day judging by the bénd in it. Funny the things you women notice. V1 one is also the one for me.

Interesting display, well presented. I prefer V4 but a tweak in Curves would bring out more detail in the shadow.
DolphinLady 12 54 1 Wales
10 Jul 2009 9:59AM
I think that V1 was the right choice, but V4 comes a very close second.

Excellent set Pamela, V4 for me with its slightly menacing edge.
11 Jul 2009 4:38PM
Excellent unusual capture, v2 is my choice.
Mynett 9 142 6 United Kingdom
11 Jul 2009 6:22PM
v1 and v4 are my favourites in this lovely series it is a place I so want to visit when I get a chance. The statue is superb and the way you have captured v4 against the sky makes a stunning image.

I love all of them. You always seem to get really good angles and perspectives in your photos, they never seem a simple snapshot, always you know what I am getting at??

Excellent shots Pamela. V4 is my favourite, excellent work with the sky. V1 is a close second, it was hard to choose one over the other.

Familiar figure at the Eden Centre, A great place to take your camera. I like all 4 shots of this but your post production work on # 4 is excellent.

Great shots, I marginally prefer vers.1. As for his dangly bits, he has to water the plants with something.

You have captured some really interesting angles on this gardener, a lesson in studying a subject! Just a slight preference for V1 but full of admiration for a great set.

Version 1 with a crop from the left to lose the distracting leaf would be my second choice and V4 romps home the winner in my book for its great dynamics .
