TWOS AND THREES - sharing the umbrella


You will have seen this couple before but I've had another go with them and put them with the reflection of St Paul's Cathedral on the pavement in the background. I didn't like the composition as they were hiding the spire so I flipped the background. I thought it looked like an optical illusion. Well it's obviously not a real one.

I like this a lot...there is a real sense of motion and of course the color against that background is very effective.

PS This would also be an easy template to stretch...the numbers are a tiny bit different, but no problem...I think I use this one, in fact...so if you want the numbers, let me know!

Thank you Jacob. Not sure what you mean about stretching the template. Do you mean the blog template?

Jacob means that we could make the pictures bigger. I know how to do it now--do you want me to do it? I hesitated to mention it because it would add extra steps to posting. I will send you a link so you know what I mean.

I really like this picture a lot! I like what you did here, it's very interesting.

I have been trying to comment but for some reason, my computer froze every time I opened this post.

I do so like it, though!

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

I think it;s somehow totally convencing, as if the cathedral was reflected in a window behind them or something--it's excellent!

Jacob said...

Yes, stretching the blog template...and Mary's done it and done well and she can help you through the process and it is certainly worth the effort!

Thanks Jacob for help and suggestion.
Mary thanks for comment on pic. I reckon I will probably print it out for CPS print comp.
I've stupidly offered to be internal print competition secretary at the club which means I have to make a note of everybody's marks. Now I can't just sit back and enjoy listening to the judges comments but will have to concentrate!
