2 sad images from the woolybills today.. Sad
As an ex sailor I hate seeing decaying boats.
What fun they had brought the original owners ...
But as with Moiras image ,,, Thats life for you!

This colour will of course vanish without the assistance of software. "Washed away by the erosion of time", a phrase pinched from a TV programme last night.
As ever Bill a more measured rection to the slow speed on site at times. The thought of going out might have had something to do with the decision too.

I can't help think Bill that the Painted job is best but with a square crop to the top of the blue. I fear the top part of the image is a little distracting.

Superb image Bill, wonderful textures and tones in V1 and I really like the fading colours in V2, so it's half a click and vote each today Smile

Definitely not one to go out fishing in. Or anything else either. Two great shots Bill, with superb detail.......Sandy

Excellent macro still life capture, Bill, with fine light, color, tones, textures, details, & comp. Both renderings are 'optimally-tweaked,' & I'm leaning 'towards the color version, v2, today.' Stay well.

Going with the colour version today Bill, interesting to see the different effects of decay.

Great texture, & fabulous detail. You can see every strand of the web.

Excellent work, Bill.

Certainly has seen better days! Two great images, Bill, nice tones and textures, think the colour version just wins for me.

V1 is fantastic but i do love V2 and the colours that brings out the texture of the old painting and wood.

Colour for me Bill where for once it seems to have the greater clarity.
Looking anything but redundant though - that spider has made a nice home of it Smile
