Moving closer to home with this one – underpass by Blackfriars Bridge, London. Having a play with some motion shots, a bit cramped for a tripod, so this was handheld at 1/4 sec. The background wasn’t quite sharp enough, but a bit of treatment in NIK SilverEfex, and I think I’ve got the effect I want…going for the impressionist rather than the literal.

A fleeting glimpse....

    Phenomenal photograph! Eerie and beautiful!

  5. I love this – I’ve walked through here many times and actually photographed the images on the tiles. The figure is a great addition and as you say yourself so aptly ‘impressionist’. Well done.

    • Many thanks, Andy! I stood around for a while to see what would present itself to me…I’m trying to do that more now, following an online course I did with Otto von Münchow…it certainly can be productive!

  6. Love it…very ethereal!

  7. The shape and gesture of the figure is wonderful. Beautifully realized.

  8. Fantastic!!! I love everything about this one, Sue. The subject matter and the moving ‘ghost’ especially. 🙂 Bravo!

  9. Great shot and processing Sue.

  10. I think it is fantastic Sue! Love the shape of the silhouette and the background feels dreamy.

  11. love the silhouette! what a beautiful shot!

  12. Sue, top class …. great editing. *smile
