"Mr Pugnacious takes no sh*t from anyone" Robin.  He likes white stilton with apricots.  Gotta say....he has taste!

Landscape / Wood Norton Hotel
« on: September 29, 2014, 07:52:34 PM »
Dunno where this fits so I chose Landscape.

The Wood Norton Hotel in the Cotswolds.  Took these early morning.  The owner was so pleased he purchased a number of them for a mutually satisfactory figure which included a further night +B&B +dinner+wine

The rays of light come from BBC security lamps shining through trees at the rear.

thanks for the comments all, appreciated

Usually I just snap away regardless, unless there is good resin photogenically to ask for a pose.

people just do not notice....they are too busy.

Street & City / Street Candids - Bangla Youth
« on: September 16, 2014, 10:13:26 PM »
A regular event.......I am spotted sporting a camera. "Take our picture". You will regret it I say, once I start I don't stop. Eventually, they beg to be allowed to go home....and I have what I want.  There was a bottle of cheap brandy feeding their bravado, and they spoke in that peculiar Bangla-Gangsta accent with all the hand jive moves.  All in all, they were a reasonable bunch and respectful of my vast seniority over their precocious youth

The Hanningfield Interceptors

As you can imagine, the exposure for this shot was heavily bracketed (i.e 30s to 1/250th over 2 days and 2 shots!!    :0)

The original backing to the swans was very uninspiring and I was so pleased with the sharpness of the shot and the pov that I went back and got the sunset.  So, both shots mine...combined using "blend if" in PS.
