Walk on by

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 1 May 2013 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

I finished with this and the only title that came into my head was that brilliant Hal David and Burt Bacharach song done superbly by both Dionne Warwick and the Stranglers. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqfqVDHNW6c

Canon EOS 500D 1/8 second F/8.0 ISO 100 27 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

This works best for me if I scroll to edit just above the guy's head in the background. All we get then is the rush !

@Ronnie 2¢: I know what you mean, and I did think about it but as I couldn't make up my mind I left it like this

I love the look of the less blurry leg in front with the big chunky heels... kind of anchoring the rest of the figure
