    Hi David, thank you for the comment :) I did use the fuji Astia Soft when in LR6, apart from that only lifted the shadows to show the under side of the roof.

    Two super images for the theme, Dave. It's hard to choose one over the other as the first shows the scale, the lovely shapes and the details under the roof, whereas I prefer the straight-on perspective of the second and also really like the warm colour of the door behind the gate plus all the intricate details of the gate itself. Hard to choose... I'd probably say #2 but they're both great for this theme :claps:

    Both great shots. I particularly like the angle of the first one and the detail in the second.

    A bit disappointing Dave as it is one of your favourite things to do and a little bit defeatist complaining about the weather, it’s not like the themes over until Wednesday. On a plus point they do contain people

    Thanks Allan, I am just totally fed up with the weather as many are, one minute it`s beautiful and sunny then the next its drizzle and yuck but I`ve never liked the winter though and never will :)

    I would just like to say, I am sorry for the rant about the weather on my people post. I have had another look at the shots and do like them, yes they are on theme but I think I was trying to push my self too much and user error for the first time yesterday :dummy::dummy::eek: Still have this cold though, and just have to learn, tough on the weather :)

    Of the two, I prefer the first ... the way they're walking together towards you, and their expressions -not what you'd expect- people normally turn away, hide from the camera.

    #1 for me Dave. You have their faces which is always a bonus for street.
    You also have them more or less on the third so composition is good.

    The second shot needs to have been a few seconds later when the person climbing over the wall is flat on their @(r)s3 (or at least that's what I would have wanted to happen ;) )

    And you be damned Dave, as I note you're up to your old bird stalking shots again.... idk... lol..

    I do like the angle of the 2nd one. It made me look closer to what was actually troubling her (y)

    Well done for getting out there for your images, Dave, and don't be too hard on yourself; I've stayed out of the constant rain all weekend and grumbled about it instead :) The first is excellent and it's all about the eye contact and the fact that they're walking towards you; it's a very engaging image :clap: Nice that they stopped for a chat with you, too.

    Catching up

    Week 0 - My area ... Nice portrait and PP - Always better to do the PP on a shot that is good to start with, better than trying to polish a t____. Too often I'm trying to rescue a shot that I should just throw away.
    Week 1 - Only Brighton could have a trademan's entrance that ornate. The second one is a bit busy, erm.... with things other than the gate.
    Week 2 - #1 would be my favourite if taken a couple of seconds later and head not sliced by volleyball net, but then would not have got the smile and wave. The V mask goup works well,

    Great job for getting out there and getting some shots Dave! I find it difficult to get motivated to shoot anything in this weather, luckily like you I managed to get out and shoot something at least which was on theme!

    Thank you Daniel for the comments, for some reason in the wet winter months I always struggle to pick up the camera, but yesterday I was glad to go back out and think, I will will just enjoy my self and if I see a shot then I`ll take it. I have to get it in to my head that we have until Wednesday to get the shot in, so nearly a week to think,plan and try to get the shot :)
