Back to my walk. I've gone all creative on this one. Something I haven't done in a while. I wanted to do something that I thought some of us can relate to.

Again guys can you help me with a title to this one please.

Where is everybody ! The profile says it's a pigeon but it's kinda hard to say for sure from this shot. Jide, bird shots or nature shots are to me the hardest shots you can do. Just have a look at Mal, Ellie, Neil and dare I say it me. Let alone all of the guys from SA. I have to say I like your take on the mono interpretation though.

A bit scary, no?
Happy New Year! I wish you all the best for 2007!
Hi, love this picture, very nice atmosphere.
Life against death , the title is : Eros & Thanatos ! smile
i really like the atmosphere the picture brings but not so much the picture (especially the processing) itself...i think zeb has hit the nail on the head with his life against death theme....
Sorry Jide, have to agree with Sam about the processing. But you know what, this last week, I did some experimentation, some worked, some did not and through the feedback, I am getting to know what I can and cannot do, like the feedback on this pic should also be a way for you to guage the boundaries. Compositionally the photo is strong, a positive to take away!! Many regards, Neil.

I felt some emotion when I looked at this so the processing is not important for me.

Like it but I'm not sure about the softness. Somehow I want this to be pin-sharp but I don't know why.

very different from the other shots of yours I've seen, and I like it a lot. Much darker and moody.
