About Adrian Lewis
Photographer - using mono, colour and combinations of the two - many types of subject, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous, trying new ideas, working in multiple genres. And I've a weakness for Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    Oh, I’m liking this very much. The smallest tree, at mid-left, looks so much like an elegant backside view of a human figure with arms up- and outstretched!

    I’m not sure what a split tone is but I can see soft greens in there. Are they there, or is it my imagination πŸ™‚
