Damn, Graham. You've been knocking it out of the ball park lately. This image is on equal footing with Henry Cartier Bresson, hands down. Great use of dynamic composition and lighting.

Thanks Duck. For various reasons I haven't been able to get out and about much for a few weeks. This, to preserve my sanity, has forced me to delve into my archives, it's proved to be something of a cathartic experience :thumbup:

That is an exercise I often suggest to my students. If for nothing else but to travel back in time and reminisce.

Wonderful alignment of elements and use of light, definitely a Moment caught perfectly.

Duck, I have sometimes suspected that Graham might be the reincarnation of Cartier-Bresson.

Graham, we are fortunate to have you among us. Thanks for rooting around in those archives.

If I am the reincarnation of HCB he must have been a Hindu.

Hindus believe that one's status in the afterlife is a reward or punishment for their conduct during life.

I'm HCB being punished :spank: :rofl:
