I set these up and shot them over two years ago and am just now getting around to composing them. These are fairly zoomed in on. A tight crop makes for an image with more impact.
The aim from now on in my small works is to be a bit looser and not take things to such a high degree of finish. Not sure what to do with the background on the bottom one. It’s not going to stay the garish red/orange it is now.
One a sidebar for today - click here for an interesting story on yet another version of the Mona Lisa which some researchers say was done by the hand of Leonardo.
