Self Portrait

Because I live in England and it is Easter (aka Four Sundays in a Row, or, perhaps, Four Sundays and a Row), the weather could not be worse and we are all marooned indoors. Hence I present to you for your delight and delectation, moi dans noir et blanc.

A slightly better effort than those of the recent past I think - more sharpening applied which helped (although overall quality probably adversely affected as a result). I think Mr Ruskin might have approved.

Wounded Angel by Emily Young

I've posted similar before but I thought the sculpture so beautiful that it could stand a few re-shoots.

Kew Gardens

It was freezing, wet and a bit miserable here today, but still Kew had a melancholy charm.

So, the background needs burning in a bit and it doesn't quite capture the melancholy I was trying for but not too bad an effort. It involves a fake infrared-effect layer overlaying an undersaturated background layer, both with varying degrees of opacity. Layers, you see - I'm slowly getting there. Raster, vector, adjustment? I have no idea about the meaning of these yet but I'm working on on it, I'm working on it!
