She would never say where she came from

Yesterday don't matter when it's gone

While the sun is bright

Or in the darkest night

No one knows

She comes and goes
Mick/Keith


In this case they come and go!! I was hoping that one would just leave but they arrived together and left together.

Wow!! How fitting a Ruby(Red) Ribbon. I was actually going to withdraw this image. I'm glad I didn't. Ithought my Free Study image would fair much better. I guess not!
Thx everyone for the comments.

For those who are interested in the PP work here it is.

First I took the picture with a red gel in front of the lens covering only the sky. This allowed me to keep the sky red while working with the water colour in CS2. Itried using the gel for the whole scene but I found it to be too plain.

Sh*t~ that is one fine photo. Every photo I look at I can hear the song in my head, but this not only does that for me but makes me want to linger awhile and just study the beauty of that crimson sky. Man oh man - this might be my pick for the challenge.

Good use of color to convey the subject of this challenge. Too bad the person's head converges with the horizon line.
