Skee-Dazzled

What a week, quite a funny one. England through to the second phase of the world cup already! Is this a sign of good things to come? This is not normally the case in big tournaments, they normally rely on the last game to secure qulification into the next round. Okay some of you will probably say that I'm talking b**l.

I wouldn't bore you with the footie detail, just enjoy your weekend. Oh another shot of a very serious photographer, as you can see he looks like he meant business with that camera, look at the chaos he's caused in the background....not much to say obviously......

Rainman....

As I tread softly in the streets of London,
my footsteps reverberating with the sounds of the rain,
drip drip as the clock tick ticks,
every step precisioned like an alakija shot carefully orchestrated...

By no means do I stray, as to stray is to sway rhythmless,
for I am rhythmically blessed and to this I attest
and manifest that I am blessed...
Skee dazzle is the name...you better recognize!!!!

The colouring in this makes it very spooky! Certainly it's an interesting photograph and very well composed. I think that lens is about as tall as I am! wink

Great composition and special weather effects smile! I would LOVE to know what you did to them colors. This looks very cool (both pic and subject ;-).
Opps-skee-daisy!, skee's gone colour blind on the ShMood! He will be forgiven smile

Jide, next time try this:

When doing two colour schemes, as above where u used warm and cool colours. try to keep the closer objects a warmer tone and the further you go back let the colours progress into the cooler tones.

This would increase the sense of depth. You seem to have done it subconsciously at first, and then decided to tone mr skee with a cool colour instead of a warm one when he is the closest object.

Keep up the lovely work!
Nice one of Skee and how is the jaw?

he totally looks like an assasin leaving the scene. I like how he is spotlighted...dark (there is probably an artsy way to say that). There should be theme music "soul man", rkellys "bad man", or even better "pompatus of love".
After the rain comes sun again smile
I like that just the photographer is focused.
Superb portrait!!

I like it very much....

That's an awesome capture - I really hope for his sake that camera remained mostly dry, but I have a feeling he wasn't that fortunate!!
