the BW treatment is perfect
BeakerSt: Cheers thanks smile
Very good B&W. Good DOF, too! I like! smile
BeakerSt: Thanks JA
Simon this is nice, how is it lit?
BeakerSt: It was shot in the garden in full sun and then the black background was created by manipulation of the curves in Photoshop. In that sense it's heavily lit from nearly directly above as it was midday or or just past. It's not a studio study and it's all hit and miss! Thanks
