An eye for detail by redtree

After much running around a large estate in rural Bedfordshire, UK in a Pinstripe suit and bowler hat (with the brolly of course) in freezing temperatures. I settled in to a scene for a few poses.
I hope you like it.

Canon 5D, 24-70mm at 24mm, f/11, 1/100 sec, ISO 100. No filters used. Remote controlled (with no one else there) by WTF E-4II wireless transmitter and an iPhone 4 via safari and live view. I’ve now found out It has a distance of around 120 metres.

This shot is also available from a photobook collection called All Business by

    Awesome!! So did he fly there?! LOL

  • That’s so odd, never noticed that my footprints don’t show up. I’ve checked the raw and converted tif and they are there but extremely faint. Should I make that area darker? Cheers for the comment. RT

    great David, unlike Wendi I think it’s best without the footprints it adds mystery to the image you had great weather for this type of work ,
    I think I would like to see the trees even fainter than they are but that’s a tiny quibble
