Played around with the saturation and found I liked this better than black and white or washed out natural!

    Terrific capture – love the vibrant colours and reflections

  • Thank you laurieirene. I don’t usually do things like this so it’s fun to experiment a bit!

    Hope you kept the camera dry!

  • I got drops of rain on the lens – bit of a nuisance!

    Elizabeth, this is really magic! Looks especially terrific on the black matte!

  • Thank you Kevin. I was amazed at the colour hidden away in the otherwise insipid shot!

    This works so well, Elizabeth – so different from your classic shots. Proof that regular playing is good for the soul – love it.

  • Thank you Jan. I really enjoyed playing around with this and making the discovery about the “hidden” colour.

    Wonderful, I thought it was a painting when I first looked – great colours!

  • Thank you very much Gaele. You can do a lot with the Photoshop tools – not that I do much. It was interesting to discover this hidden colour!

    An inspired choice for the treatment. We see only a small band of the light spectrum and too “push” it somewhat is very interesting. Especially where it isn’t normally visible.

  • Just came across all this colour by chance rather than design. I then looked at the raw file but couldn’t reproduce this effect. Learning little by little.

  • Thanks Moyo. It was the rings I was trying to get. Then this person appeared…
