I like this! a lot ...there's just something about it.
Nkx: Thanks for your comment. Glad you like
Fantastic shot!...love the crumbling sidewalk, the Disney dalmations, the door and that precarious step leading up to it, the complementary blues and oranges, the bike leaning against the shutters, the textures, the light..everything..
Nkx: Suzanne- thanks for your very perseptive comments- much appreciated.
This shot has a lot going for it well done . Where was it taken ?
Nkx: This was taken in a village called Amuvi in Arochukwu, Eastern Nigeria. Thanks for visiting
beautiful image. i love it.
Nkx: Thanks for your comment!
nicely done. love the colors (perhaps the red is a little over saturated), the framing and the clarity of it.
Nkx: Thanks for comments. Didnt intentionally saturate the red!

I really couldn't think of anything to write so I've decided to plagiarise Suzanne Canada (pls refer) comments, she put so eloquently smile. The colour, the drama...stunning shot!!
Nkx: Thanks very much for visiting the site and your comment!

gorgeous colours and processing smile
Nkx: Thank you Tim!
Very very nice.
Nkx: Thanks Nigel
Just love the strength of everything about this image...I also think it might look good desaturating the colours quite significantly ... but of course that is only my personal and alternatiove thought. I love the feel and theme of your past half dozen or so postings. richard.
Nkx: Thank you Richard. Will try it out and post it at a later date.. Thanks for visitng the archive. Any other comments/suggestions are appreciated
