Re: February 2018 Monthly Photo Challenge Minimalism

Thank you very much to all those that voted.
I am really surprised though, as I thought the hare would run (hop!) away with it, although my favourite was the moon. I've enjoyed entering my first one of these challenges, and doing well does give me encouragement that I'm atleast doing something right! I will definately enter more, although the weather keeps beating me on the bridge shot I want!

If anyone is remotely interested, the location was Torside reservoir on the Woodhead Pass crossing the Pennines (the Pennine Way actually goes along the dam wall). Torside is the second reservoir (of five) from the east, and the area offers some good landscape photo opportunities (try googling Middle Black Clough). The weir shot was taken last month (it is often dry in the warmer months) at f5.6/iso200/30sec exposure with a 10stop filter. I didn't do all that much processing, just a few level adjustments, cloned out a few stones from the bottom channel and cropped to make the most of the curve. This was the location on the day...

Thanks again
