The Ice Cream Seller by Colin Metcalf

Captured outside Harlow Carr Gardens at Harrogate. For those who might not know, Betty’s tearoom in Harrogate is supposedly one of the best tearooms in England. They have fairly recently opened one at Harlow Carr, hence the logo on the bike.

Taken with a Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ38.
Single handheld raw image tonemapped in Photomatix Pro 4.0.2. Layers by Skeletalmess and Lenabem added in Photoshop Elements 9. Sepia treatment and final tweaks in Picasa 3.


Thanks for taking the time to browse my portfolio, I hope you see something you like. Colin.
