That sounds great. Whenever and wherever you are ready and willing would be fine with us. : )

Hi Yildiz

I started to work up a new image, but decided that a detailed description of all of my processes is just too difficult for me to document. I keep reversing what I've done and changing direction, etc., etc., - just too much to keep track of I'm afraid.

So I used a previously processed image and gave a brief overall description of what I did. This I posted under Effects and Art Techniques.

regards - Peter

Thank you, Peter; : )

Much appreciated indeed. Reading your processing workflow in its own topic and thread right now. Brilliant!

Thanks,

Hi everyone; :D

I hope nobody's discouraged by the rather premature attention that Peter's photos received and know that your own take on photography is always what's most welcome. : ) Different is good in photography.... We only learn and move ahead from there and hopefully become more questioning about what we want in our photo frames.

Just wanted to remind you... :)

Looking forward to all incoming favourites you'll choose among many for the challenge.

On a tropical location at early morning. We were getting ready for our breakfast and clouds converge for a brief
few minutes. Luckily I had my camera with me (instead of leaving it in the room). Serendipity.

Usually older women are working in the Bali rice fields, but occasionally there is a younger woman. Here we see that she walks with the confidence that comes from knowing she is Top Babe in that rice field. The sun was hot and beating down, but it never gets her down. She dresses for success and she maintains her jaunty walk knowing all eyes will turn her way. :lol:

Your narrative made the image that much more interesting, Henry.
I would not have gotten all that drama that went on in that shot,
otherwise.

:D Can relate to those observations, Henry. Nicely narrated women's social psychology.

Welcome on board the challenge with your life frames.... Love the back lit crop blades and how the plantations layer into the distance.

Thanks for sharing,
