Just looked in as its lunch time, and wow what a pleasant surprise..A real honour to be nominated.
Thanks Bear, I really do appreciate the nomination that enabled this image to be seen (and I hope appreciated) by more viewers.
I was very pleased with the way the image turned out; it was taken with the E510 coupled with the 50-200 SWD taken at 200mm at f3.5 hence the wicked dof. As you can clearly see the image is full of detail which is a great testament to this lens.
I think that the brown/gold toning adds a mood of drama, decay and hopelessness’ to the image; I believe these are the emotions that Bear picked up on.
Thanks Ian and Smoke for the following comments (above).
Here’s to a great new feature on the forum
