Untitled #14

Posted on Wed 19th Jul, 2006, 5:42pm

ISO: 100, Shutter speed: 1/500, Aperture: f/8,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: Minor,
Lens: Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM, Focal length: 100mm,
Captured: 18th July 2006, 2:43pm,

I might never have stopped and photographed this scene, were it not for this shot (well, series of shots) on Chromasia a while back.

As it is, this is nowhere near as good but even if the skies around here had been anything approaching photogenic lately (which they certainly haven't), it's still bloody tricky to get them into the shot when photographing random objects around Shepherds Bush.

Nice colours but as a shot I'm not to keen on it, good detail though.

the glare of light doesnt do it for me. I also am not a fan of the colours neither am I fan of the detail on the pavement.

Maybe I ought to have processed it with less detail, like blurred it or done a soft focus perhaps. Dunno really. I think it's just a quirk in my personal taste, like how you all seemed to like the backflip photo the other week. Personally, while I obviously thought it was good enough to post, I just thought it was a photo of my mate doing a backflip. It didn't make you think about how shapes and colours occur in the world, it wasn't a study of decay (urban or otherwise), it wasn't even a portrait of the guy... Just a photo proving that my mate can do a backflip.

I think you've got some good color and texture in this image. Shows you are on the lookout for something different, something unique to capture. Keep at it!

Nice colours and detail in the foreground and background(ish) but there seems to be a lack of detail / focus on the grate which I find annoying, also the glare spoils the overall image..

It's okay. The composition is strong and I quite like the detail. I have a feeling you're working too hard at it though, I usually try to have a day off when I get like that. You can't be on the top of your game every day.

Jon - the thing is, I have had a break. After Whitby I hardly went out taking photos at all, I just coasted on those shots, processing them and seldom shooting anything new. I ought to be refreshed really but instead I feel like there's nothing happening when I go out. Dunno what I need at the moment. It'd help if some random people came up and asked me what I was taking photos of but they've all gone shy :)

You're going to get Sys on yer arse "copying" if you're not careful..:p I like the exture and personally it works well with the background removed.
