~At Rest~

Part of my Winter Vacation consists of going up to a great friends place in Maynardville, TN. It's really the only time within a year I get to visit. Love being here and just sort of disconnecting from the world.
One morning while having some coffee and nicotine, I noticed how the light was coming in from the window and sort of accenting my shoes.
I took several shots of this scene and today this scene has presented itself for upload. I never really know whats going to pop out of my photo galleries and become that choice for the day. Sometimes the choices are iffy and sometimes a scene has been sitting around for a while and all of the sudden becomes so fresh and inviting.

good vibes to all,

pp-Full frame, grayscale conversion with duplicated layer and set to screen mode at 22% opacity to accent parts.
Neat image and USM for some more defined areas.
Thank you!

Hi Michael

I like the low key tones & superb backlighting on the boots. Good tonal range, dof, & sharpness.

Yes, this is another aspect of time (un/used)
Isn't it great to be released from the confinement of your shoes and have your feet up ? Although, what we see from your pix, they're usually the effects of light shining inside. There still is a world out there, remember ! ;-)
The picture ? Love it :-)

Love the point of view and the lighting. Well spotted Mike.
I see you haven't posted a photo in a while. Hope you are OK.

a bit much fg but otherwise a pleasing image, thanx, M, (*_*)
