Reinardina....I know we have had a few sparing matches and don't always see eye to eye, but I must say.......your photography has improved dramatically and I take my hat off to you. Well done and keep it up. I'm really 'seeing' your work and think you have a good eye for what works really well. U R a dark horse.

Thank you Chris.
I'm still learning, trying things out and experimenting all the time. Often getting it very wrong. But when I realise that something isn't right, the images won't leave my hard drive, so no one knows about them, giving the impression I'm much better than I am!

And about my 'good eye;' I literally have distorted vision, I see everything round a blind spot, which means I do not see straight lines, they're all bent. Maybe seeing things differently helps?

And yes, I am a very dark horse, lurking in the shadows, waiting to pounce!

I went for simplicity in tones, colour palette and subject.

Following Abers' example, a simple subject, small pallet. The processing consisted solely of checking the auto levels and perfectly clear boxes in Aftershot Pro.

The paper clips are floating in a pyrex™ dish full of water, a sheet of green paper underneath the dish.

Reinardina has offered to do it in my absence as I am away until tomorrow night. Working off the iPhone and iPad WHEN I get a signal is not conducive to setting up the poll for the first time.

Patience dear lady.

It goes up on a Tuesday, no specific time, just when whoever is putting it up has time in their busy schedule. Don't forget entries are permissable up to midnight Monday, and some people like to sleep.

You've got all week to vote.
