Well spotted, hard to believe that colours are natural, looks like you have applied half B&W selective colouring to it!
Les Auld: Just natural, with a bit of help from the building across the road that got in the way of the sun at just the right point. Thanks Monica.

Terrific shot Les. Love the detail on the lit building.
Les Auld: Thanks Aussie.
The shadow line across the building is a great effect!
Les Auld: Appreciate your stopping by Jewlya, gald you liked it. I did have a bit of help from St. Georges hall across the road as it provided the shadow.
Well spotted, I thought you had processed half as B&W at first too.
Les Auld: Thanks Nigel. appreciate the comment.
Oh this is clever, and so effective! Well spotted! (:o)

Enjoying catching up on what I have missed over the last couple of weeks, too. (:o)
Les Auld: Glad you enjoyed it, thanks Rosalyn.
I'm sitting here thinking "he's got to have cheated" but you haven't have you? clever devil!
Les Auld: The only cheating is a bit of levels and curves, otherwise as seen. Thanks Bill.

Les Auld: Thanks Mal, appreciate the comment.
Well spotted. It's incredible how well defined the edge between sun and shadow is. All the best, Dave.
Les Auld: This was lying on the hard drive for a couple of months before I spotted it. Thanks Dave.
