good luck cooper,i nearly failed,but managed to save it back home in the studio.
left out more than i put in,so complicated...

the dark backlit shadows vs the lit street

Sally said...

Rob this worked out great, despite your annoyance at the weather, you've captured that hazy atmosphere that says : "the weather is about to turn miserable." Great job!
