Hi Rick

Snappers Choice, thats a really nice image, ROT, lead in lines, great sky, Simples.
Not liking the alternative edit.

Near, I like the dark background, but there is more details in the figures on the 2nd edit, due to size I think.

Original edit I think for me, the second one feels a little tight (but being square would suit instagram better).
Thanks Tim, appreciate the comment.

School's out! Alice Cooper.

I had to grab something quickly today as we are out and about for the next few days and I may not get chance to upload stuff onto the site.

I could try and get a shot of that next week. It’s the dance academy on a weekend. Problem is when they leave it’s full of cars.

Looks a bit like my old Comprehensive back in the day...
The aged purple pp gives it a very 70s look (or is that the look of an old photo that's gone slightly off), so works really well for the theme. :)

Great shot for the SONG theme!

Thanks both, much appreciated. I used one of the vintage matte LUTs in On1 to get that look. It reminds me of my school days too...

Great images Rick!(y)

Near: Fantastic work. Superb lighting and great composition. Cannot fault it. I prefer #1.
Song: Very imaginative processing which really suits the tone (and song), very nicely done.
Thanks Gareth, comments much appreciated :)

This is an aircraft we have borrowed from one of our operators to allow us to carry out some realistic training.

What kind of training do you have to do with a plane, Nice idea for the theme.
We do a number of different things, including search and rescue, casualty extraction, gaining entry, smoke removal (using cosmetic smoke) etc etc. Basically, anything to do with responding to emergencies within aircraft.

Like it, well composed and exposed, smart looking jet that.
Thanks. It’s actually not a jet but the prop engines have been removed. :) it is a Jetstream 41.

Lovely portrait Rick, lighting looks great andit has a nice dark bg.
Thanks Michael, I'm hoping she will play ball a bit more so I can practise lighting a lot more.

#2 is better, the processing has worked well.
The single point lighting works well here, I like the strong contrasts, works well with spooky images.
Thanks guys, I agree on the second version. Comments such appreciated. :)

I can only agree taking the highlights down a touch has certainly improved it not that it was bad before. Nice black BG too
