Our very Own David Worthington has chosen Canasta's striking portrait image

I chose this striking image because Canasta has attempted something quite different and not seen in anyone else's work....yes its not technically perfect , but that doesn't always bug me.......I am applauding someone who this week has taken their own path and come up with something original and very saleable too.

Awww....guys...to say I'm chuffed is an understatement.
Thanks. :) :) :)

I'd like to thank my wife...for always being supportive
My kids...there they are...Hi kids
Urm...
Interfit, Nikon, urm... oh...James - the model

Seriously thanks for picking it.
I do like it too..and agree an image don't always have to be technically spot on to be striking - this was purely a bit of mindless tweaking in RAW until I thought ....ooh that looks interesting

I printed it at A3 and framed it...and today it's in my studio window - looks fab!

Thanks again!

Congrats to you Canasta, a great image.

As Dave said, 'it may not be technically perfect' but to me that is a bonus. Anything, or anyone, that strays from the well worn 'safe' path deserves a second look.

First class.

Steve.
