Nice compo, suits theme well.
Thank you Walter :)

Very nice, spot on theme.(y)
Thank you too Shirley :)

Interesting find Dean:)
Cheers mate :)

You sure that's a male :)
He did have a little 'package' there I think :D

Well spotted. The symmetry looks good, but can't understand why the base of the wall isn't horizontal :thinking:

Cheers.
Hmmmm yes I thought that of the top line too, but I stood (squatted) dead square on, I guess such an old building that the courtyard has been built up over the years ?? :thinking:

Lovely autumnal colours, well composed and posed, Nice line from the lower left.

Any from a little closer?

Cheers.
Thanks Andy :)

No not really many taken close up in this location, I tried a couple but kept losing the leading lines... Closer up shots worked better in an area of Silver Birch trees, much more contrast :)

Yes, very well done Dean ... I too like those crates - they act as a good contrast with the elegance and style of the statues. (Edit) Just spotted Out & About. Yes, great use of the path as a leading line and nicely contrasted with the verticals of the trees to give depth.

Great find for Male / Female. Well composed, and if the crates weren't there it might have looked a bit boring.

Nicely composed Out and About shot, and lovely colours.

Out & about - has a nice composition, but I feel the model is to far into the picture to be an important part of it - which she clearly is....
The trees and converging lines work well but overall I feel it lacks something...this may have been down to the light available at this time of year.



Like I know what Im talking about !

Hahaaaa Thanks Chirs... I think :D

Love that line of trees DK, it really makes a perfect setting, as Chris says plain and simple in some ways, but great composition and an eye catching photo.
Cheers Susie :)

No very valid points Mark, I did try a couple close in but lost the leading lines... Let me try again :D

How's this crop of the original ??

Good use of framing and leading lines DK. Composed in a classical style.
(y)
The re-edit does give you more of her expression, which saves me the zooming in I was doing to the original. I think the re-edit is stronger.
Thank you Tim :)

Right... lets get this 52 finished before 2017 is here :D

A shot taken today in a local grave yard, disappointingly I got out too late and the heavy fog had lifted a tad too much, although much earlier and the image would not have the church included, so hey, it is what it is

Didn't realise you were an image short Dean!
I kept missing it Tim :D
Nicely done, I didn't see the ghostly figure standing there are first in Spooky.
Cool I was hoping people wouldn't at first :)
Clever to use the leading lines of the graves to take the eye to him.
Thanks :) - the him was me, took several shots to get the timing right with a single exposure :)

Celebrate - I do hope those 3 bottles were empty by the end of the evening ;)
Oddly enough no, Vodka and Prosecco was in order, saving the champers for a special occasion :)
