About the Image(s)

This is a picture taken from a site in Springfield Meres south of Shrewsbury, which was printed in black and with the addition of a model, that I saw outside a boutique in the Midlands.. The B & W print was then treated with photoshop colours, with a dabbing process using cotton buds..
This picture has already had an accept at a salon, before the strife brought everything to a halt, That has cleared now, so a have sent it off again.
I sent a copy to our Chair lady, Moira, who was impressed with the method and has sent it on for the Journal.

While I appreciate your technique, the white model seems to me to be out of place...and she needs more detail...Also the dark tree trunk (?) on the right side is a distraction to me....I wish you luck in the Salons, but, I doubt that it would do well here in the US...I could be wrong, but that's my opinion as a Salon judge for many years here in the US.   Posted: 08/01/2020 18:51:44

Your creativity really comes out in this image. The model appears as a ghost, turning around to look at the photographer. A fun photo one can study.   Posted: 08/04/2020 15:42:56

I would also crop the tree trunk of the right side. Very creative with the model all in white.   Posted: 08/07/2020 14:50:33

this is interesting image. the dabbing process to add colour had to take time. It gives it a mystical Chinese effect. The lady or ghost creates conflict with he quiet scene. What is she trying to say. Do you have a title to direct the viewer?   Posted: 08/09/2020 19:57:10
