How To Kill Time In Airports #2

Posted on Sat 26th Aug, 2006, 10:39pm

ISO: 200, Shutter speed: 1/20, Aperture: f/2.8,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: None,
Lens: Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 EX DC, Focal length: 40mm,
Captured: 23rd August 2006, 10:59pm,

This is the second of the pair of trolley shots and the one I prefer. Again there's not much to be said about it. I think it's simple and works because of that.

Same sentiments as yours Jamey. I too prefer this over the 1st one. Possibly just because the trolleys fill the whole frame, and the eye is drawn to them as a whole, rather than the reflections fighting for the eye

This is awesome Jamey. I've seen these trolleys every week and never understood how I could snap one with such a great pattern . nice work

Definately prefer this one Jamey, great lighting, nicely composed and fills the frame. Lovely shot.

Ahhh this is a much better shot than the previous one! This really captures the (no pun) especially the chrome bars of the trolleys, to be honest I think the shot would have been just as effective with the wheels in monochrome as well Jamey.

/me inserts "eyes" into the above..

Jamey, Sun 27th Aug, 2006, 1:25pm
Sys - it's not mono anywhere. That's how the scene really looked. I have boosted saturation in the reds a little but I ended up reducing that layer to about 30% opacity as it was too much so this isn't a lot different to the original in that respect.

i actually prefer yesterdays, i lkie the way it ends half way through, this is a little bland, photographic porridge, but then i don't know anything.

Jamey, Mon 28th Aug, 2006, 2:02am
Ban - I know what you mean and I agree. This is more bland but that was what I was aiming for, for once. But with the blandness comes a certain peaceful quality as well, I think.

I really like the repetition in the image.

Great shot!

Sick shot, great pattern. Funny how intense the slight red detail in this shot can be so dominant.

I understand that you prefer this one, because it's neat and square, but I find it a bit too simple. I mean, the repetitive objects are common in photography. The previous one is much more interesting because it introduces a certain troubling element by cuting the row.
