Today, I’m practising split-toning. This one is done in Lightroom, with quite a light touch (a new discipline for me!). It hasn’t had any sharpening applied, which, I think, keeps it on the ethereal side.

Split Personality scored 20/20 in the colour print section and I was placed third overall in the year.  Into the Light scored 20/20 in the digital monochrome section and I was placed first equal overall in the year.

5th Greek Photographic Circuit

18 acceptances from the 5th Greek Photographic Circuit, with The Sorceress continuing its run of awards with a Diploma 3; three new images got their first acceptances – The Seventh Veil, Great Heron Taking Off and Male Bearded Tit; and four fairly recent images also did well – Study in Red, Trinity, Medusa and Regrets. Happy with that, as they say.
