a drop in the dark by RickHaigh a drop in the dark by RickHaigh
unsharp filter used here, to ephasis the background was actually mist.. then, contrast adjustment, some noise added then monochrome conversion, then a cooling filter, then erased the top layer drop..

then finally texture by :iconinthename-stock: was added

I love it! I'm liking your foray into the darkroom and still-life....and the color and light here are excellent as well.

Such minimalistic forms need some special artistry. You are on a good way, I think. It's really nice: composition, coloration, sharpnes.
Your universe is plainly romantic. Even this picture! (le sentiment de la nature... This great photographic image reminds me a French almost unknown poet Maurice de Guerin...)

thank, my friend.. such minimalism is not usually my scene, as i can't seem to get the focus i want.. so i really appreciate your wonderful comment, Kris..

romantic?? ny friend, you couldn't be more wrong. i don't actually have a romantic bone in my body, although, i guess my photo's sometimes suggest otherwise..
