Lazy, being me taking pictures from the sun lounger yesterday afternoon. I've used the Impressive Art setting on the G5 before, accidentally, but really liked the effect so thought I'd try it out in the garden. It's called "laid back" photography and is a new genre I've just created. Works well with a cup of tea nearby. Smile

V2 required a bit more effort. I had to swivel a few inches to the left. Blush

Woke up yesterday not only to sunlight flooding in the window, but to a lovely sunny UA from Source. Big thanks. Double sunshine. Smile

Yes, I'd like Sue to put them to use too, and do some weeding while she's at it. Grin

The mix of the random with a sort of neat formality - this is somehow so very English.

I like this in camera setting too Chris. Double laziness, that's a really good thing. I like both of these very much.

I do like the new genre you have created Chris.
Must give it a try sometime.
Although I would have one proviso.
It would be a can of beer for me instead of tea !!

Very nicely done here, Chris - the effect reminds me of those old seaside postcards which were shot in mono, but hand coloured afterwards....but that would have been before your time.... Wink Well worth too all that effort of swivelling a few inches to get V2! Wink I'm with Mick though, and go for a beer, I don't do tea... Smile
