I like the abstract feel to this Eni and the way you have framed the light strip perfectly centred. Mal

Oooh a nice long weekend!

I like the symmetry for this composition. There is just enough light to see and yet just little enough to make it somewhat mysterious.
Very nice Etomi. Good, crisp lines and a lovely diagonal lead in. Regards, Neil.
I love this kind of statues and I really like the way that you've framed this shot

I Like this very much. The dark area frames the subject matter very nicely and the opaque glass gives a lovely diffused light on the heads.

I wish there was just a bit more light on the first head though, to balance it aesthetically. Is there any way you could bring some detail out of those dark shadows, perhaps with the dodge tool and the saturation sponge if you have Photoshop?
E Etomi: I'll def try your suggestions. Thanks Chunter
