    I really like 2 and 3. I think a tight crop on the mime's face would have been stunning!

    Like #2, Richard thumb.gif Classic look.

    I reckon it's that same street with the blue walls and the white lines?! Couldn't anyone lend those builders a level? :D

    Nice series, Richard!
    #1 is hilarious, #2 is very HCB (IMHO) and #3 is just lovely. thumb.gif

    Thanks Powell. You mean without the wings? Hmm...might be a bit weird, but I'll give it a try next time I see her. I don't think there are enough pixels in this one. ne_nau.gif

    Thanks, Angie. I'm guessing that my wife has the same expression a lot of the time. rolleyes1.gif Spring has arrived in Madrid, so we have about 10 weeks of beautiful weather till it gets hotter than hell.

    Thanks, Neil. Same window, as a matter of fact...I grabbed this one when I went back to it to see if any of the lines were true. Nope. lol3.gif

    I think with the right crop and angle, you could use the texture of the wings to frame her face and really draw the eye in. I like it!

    Here's a crop:

    I like the idea, but I think I need to re-shoot to really get it right. Thanks for the suggestion. thumb.gif
