Second one for this series (please see my previous image Reaching Out for a bit more detail), just taken advantage of the glorious sunshine outside to light this. Thought that nothing epitomises relaxation better the lying back in the sun with you feet crossed. Would have been very relaxing too if I wasn't trying to lie down, look at the LCD in a mirror and stop my cats from jumping into the scene! Happy with the result though,

Shot with my 50mm prime at f/1.8, 1/4000th and ISO100. I've converted it to black and white in elements, boosting the contrast a little, before adding a vignette and border.

Thanks for looking!

Nice touch with the processing, Steve, especially the vignette. And good job with the original shot itself considering you don't have a flip out LCD!

Nice image, it would not be right in colour.

Thanks for the votes and comments folks, glad to see I'm on the right track. I have a couple more from yesterday to upload, just need to get round to processing them. Hopefully I'll get another one up before the weekend.
