    Simple but effective and great use of contrasting colour and light.

  • Thanks David, still undecided as it may be too simple?

    James, I think the contrasting tonal values and general graduation of the image hold it together, the light foregound area acts as a lead-in to the setting sun. Well that’s my opinion. If I had a criticism to make it would be to the framed images to the right…I find the white mount holds the image and allows the eye to travel in, much better than the black one does. Again, just my opinion. :-)

  • Thanks for your input David, just one of those images you’re not sure about. Will keep it for a while and see if it grows on me ;o)
