Lone rider

I was going to post a photo I'd taken today but I really like this one from yesterday so I'm breaking with PAD requirement; after all it is my photoblog! ;)

I knew what effect I was after yesterday but I wanted this shot to be quite natural by comparison; that is, I didn't want to muck around with it too much in post processing.

The result is a completely different shot. I think, of the two, today's is actually my favourite. I was taken with the shot yesterday, especially with all the strong tones in mono but I'm leaning toward the more natural shot.

See what you think.

On another note, If you have noticed the thumbnails for the last few 16x9 shots displaying strangely in the 'All Photos' section, don't worry. It's just the thumbnail generator for Drupal can't crop in on my shots so it leaves a gap between thumbnail edge and the frame around the picture. I will correct it manually when the 16x9 ratio photos leave the top 7 posts. It's just a side effect of the widescreen photo ratio with my site unfortunately.
