That is a lovely image, really nice warm colours and great to have the interest of the person in the image.
I think the way the road reflects the sky really makes this composition.
That's a great start Phil. Lovely warm colours, it could almost be a late summer's evening just before a storm.
Liking that you have subjects at either end of the leading lines too.
Lovely lines and composition, nice with the person for interest, and what a lovely sky!
Great start Phil
Great shot Phil. Walking into a new and more promising year!
Warm light offset by the wooly hat. Works well!
as above a very nice image an excellent start to the year
Nice start Phil.
Yep a belter to start with
Looks like a gorgeous place to move to. Good luck. Lovely sunset displaying that lovely reflected light on the surroundings.
Glorious light, nice compo, love it.
lovely image you have caught the light well.
Thanks for all the comments.That's beautiful Phil. Great start.
Thanks - I found it difficult to keep the banana in the right posiiton and ended up holding it so I might have moved slightly.Oooh, very close (not sure I like it - the subject not the image - it makes me uneasy ) Good lighting on it but is the main part of the fruit a bit soft where the skin on lower right is sharp (or is it my monitor)? Nice frame filler too
Nice and close, and plenty of detail.
It looks a little like the under side of a starfish
Thanks, I tried it clean cut but wanted something a bit different.I like the folded skin on the left, and the light on the edible banana bit .... I might have cropped it tighter.
I don't like the bite, a clean cut would look unrealistic but more interesting. Hmmmm ...
lots of texture and well lit.
Happy for that, thanks.Hi Phil, did you want the technique for this shot, as it would seem to fit the bill for that as well as the theme..
OMG that would not have been possible in my house, my dog can hear a banana being unwrapped from 100yds. I would have been lucky to have got a bite out of it let alone pose it for a photo..
I like the way you've arranged the peeled skin. Good positioning in the frame too.
Bananas actually set my teeth on edge so you can image my reaction to this! A good shot all the same.
Thanks folks for the comments.Hit's the mark for the subject and technique that's for certain! Nicely done.
