It's another figure walking by. I enjoy using the Nik Silver Effects filters for my BW work. Shot with my backup camera a Canon 40d and using my 100mm macro lens shot wide open. I had to walk quickly to get to my
spot to take this image.

Thanks. I use Nik SE too, and Tonality as my main B&W editors. Of course you've got me beat, but that's OK, it's always good to have something/someone to admire and learn from.

That is a most peculiar figure. I have looked at it multiple times and my imagination has run wild...

I very much like this loving the common image to find it flipped on its head. Well done, and thank you! S-

I think you must walk with your camera ready at your eye. Well timed! S-
