Wow, a post every day. This new leaf is turning pret-ty good. Thanks for all your lovely welcome back comments - much appreciated.
I really love this photo. I took it of G last week in Bath and I think of it as my "fashion photograph" (I should be so lucky)... slightly Burberry with a twist. My Photoshop skills don't quite extend to removing the figure to the right. It's the light that makes it for me; soft, late afternoon, low in the sky. Photography is all about the light - look for the light and there's your photo. I've used Lightroom a little to recover some of the highlights, but I like the bleached, flare look - a big trend in fashion photography at the moment, which means it will soon be overdone and killed.
Long live the flare.
