    Very nice picture, I personally would make the dark a bit lighter.

    Koos,

    A very well composed interesting subject. See what happens if you increase the contrast a tad or how about a tad more saturation? Perhaps it is only my screen.

    I like it.

    Hi Andre,

    And here with a little more contrast and saturation.

    I will let it sink in and look a few times to decide which I like best.

    Just a quick question, Koos, if I may please?

    On the shadow wall, is there a 90* corner, or is it one straight wall coming back toward the camera?

    Hi Terry,

    Haha, I created a visual effect by darkening a part of the "wall", so that it looked like 90 degrees corner. It is, by the way, not a wall in real.

    Can you solve the puzzle?

    Thanks for the comment.

    Regards,
    Koos

    I doubt I can solve the puzzle Koos!

    But the reason I asked is because there appears to be a “tell” at the base of the wall where the “corner” might be!

    Dear Terry,

    It is part of a platform of wooden watchtower, processed in photoshop and tilted 90 degrees for the effect. Can you explain what a "tell" is?

    Regards,
    Koos

    Sure Koos! I apologize.

    A “tell” is a giveaway. There is something at the base of the wall that made me think something was done. It “gave it away”!

    The base of the wall appears to come toward the camera. Then make a 90* corner for a very short distance going toward the right side of the frame. Then makes another 90* corner and comes back toward the camera.

    But I only see this happening at the base of the wall. The vertical flat part of the wall does not seem to follow these two corners.

    Unless, of course, I’m seeing things (again!)!
