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.

Looks wet and gloomy there Rick, I know it`s a weekend but it would of been a fantastic shot if someone had been running out.
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.

Great shot for the SONG theme!
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. :)
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 :)

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.

#2 image for me Rick, as you now can see some detail in your daughters cheek and nice shot too.
Thanks Dave, I always rush to get these pics on and then wish I'd spent longer in PP

Lovely portrait Rick.(y)
#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
