Well done for getting something different, you have a very unusual style of processing which I think works on this it’s very high key.
trying to pass the shoes off as your daughters though ;)

Thanks. I’m trying a few different things out at the moment. I’m having a play with filters and LUT’s in ON1 Raw. I’m still not settled on a ‘style’ as such, but am enjoying experimenting. I realise the processing won’t be to everyone’s taste. But I’m fine with that.

I’d struggle to get my size 11’s in those :)

Hi Rick,
Old - Oopf, that looks like it has seen better days. How did that happen? Looks like some kind of vacuum formed?
Great colour and an interesting shot :)
Flowers - Yes, nice to see something other than flowers themselves. Mono works for this.

Thanks Tim,

It was indeed a vacuum which caused the issue, though it works by vacuum, but the tank must have become weakened by corrosion.

Old, looks a bit overexposed.
Flowers, nice different image, I like the high key tones in the B&W Image.

Thanks, I purposely processed the Old image like that, though I appreciate it won't be to everyones taste. :)

Very nice image for 'flower' Rick, and very inventive!(y)
The simple composition works well, and it's nicely processed for B&W too.
Thanks Gareth, much appreciated :)

A very nice dull shot Rick, showing the incoming grotty weather, glad you are liking the X-H1 as imo it`s a great camera.

Very nice image Rick!(y)
I love the sense of foreboding...that sky really means business!
Good use of the rule of thirds too, placing the tree right on it.
Thanks Gareth,
I can confirm that within an hour we had a proper storm.

That shows how a dull day and cloudy sky can still yield an interesting image!

Like how the road leads the viewer in, looks like that here too.

Hi Rick,
Dull - Hmm, doesn't work for me I'm afraid, it just looks underexposed. I guess that's how it looked on the day, but it just looks darkened (especially the heavy vignette).
Free Week - I much prefer this shot. The weel maintained road leading off into the distance. Private Road? Reeeeaaaalllly?
I prefer the original to the re-edit.

It fits the theme well. The sky does look a bit threatening.

Snappers choice
I prefer the first edit, good use of the R.O.T

Not keen on the alternative edit with the flare feels like taken inside a car. A nice quiet road would be perfect for my
.
That’s what I used to use it for. It was one of my routes.

Great image for snappers choice Rick!(y)
Terrific road and compositionally spot on.
The placement of the sign is perfect for rule of thirds.
I also think the first image is stronger without the flare...but it's always fun to try new things!
Thanks Gareth, much appreciated :)

Hi Rick,

Empty - Nice and sharp but I do agree with others that it's a bit tight.
Building - Very well seen and composed. Love the natural frame.
Soft - Plenty of soft there. A touch too vibrant for me though.
Old - That must have been a fair old vacuum to cause that! Nice shot. I like the pp work on the colour.
Flowers - Nice shot with the focus concentrating on the flowers. Looks good in mono.
Dull - Great sky. Maybe a touch over processed? Looks like it's going to do something very unpleasant!
Snappers choice - Nice shot. I like the lead in.
Near - Second one for me. Very nice. Well lit.

Near and Dear are two very nicely taken images Rick, like both but my choice is the first shot loving the dark BG.
