Great capture. Wonder how this will look in b/w; I've a feel it may work. Regards.

Indeed, that's why they call it the blues.....! It was a grab shot & I had to work quickly - this was the only shot. I lost marks earlier this year in a competition for the 'distortion'. In fact it's a curve in the paving stones, but only I know it! No adjustments other than curves, saturation, sharpening & cropping.

Thanks! Nice idea - I'll have a play.

All it needs is just a lyrics for a great blues song: " I woke up this morning,..."

I like the cropping, surprised to see this much distortion on the bright paving blocks. Perfect guitarist pose in stride! Hats off if you did not use high fps!

How did you manage to get the checkered jacket in same colours as the rest of the image?

Thanks for your comments on "Two Circles & Square".
