  1. Always love your diptychs Elizabeth, these are terrific. It’s amazing how many examples you find that are such marvelous matches. Terrific idea for the challenge.

  2. Fantastic set of diptychs; brilliant response to the challenge 👏 My favourite has to be be the scratched sign & tree silhouettes 😃 Thanks for joining the fun 😊

    1. The scratched sign/tree silhouette almost didn’t make the cut – I was certain I could find a bush silhouette in snow that matched even better. However the luminous sky won me over. I’m glad you like it.
