April Entry – Wreck

A very unusual image Ian. It has a wonderful timeless old film effect and spot on composition as usual from you. I am amazed at the ISO 3200 (I try and stay out of there if at all possible) but that maybe helps that old film effect. You can’t beat a bit of decay for a good photo can you?
Sorry I am lagging behind on the assignments. Just not getting out and about with my camera at the moment. Must try harder! 🙁April 20, 2013 at 1:11 pm #3879
Thanks, Dee. Glad you like it!
“I am amazed at the ISO 3200 (I try and stay out of there if at all possible) but that maybe helps that old film effect.”
The X100s produces great, low noise images upto ISO 3200. Something to do with the fancy new x-trans sensor, I don’t doubt. The gritty film look is all down to Silver Efex Pro 2, and my over-exuberant post-processing! 😉April 20, 2013 at 4:43 pm #3880

The curves on the mono are lovely, and wished I had taken this shot, as I just lovely old gritty dirty areas. You can tell I was dragged up backwards, always did have dirty scraped knees! It really reminds me of the harbour area of my hometown. The colour I just want those earrings, but my neck is too short to wear them. A well spotted portrait.
But must get out and do some work for these assignments. You must feel lonely putting all the effort in.April 22, 2013 at 5:31 pm #3893
Nothing to be cross about.April 22, 2013 at 8:55 pm #3896
I too like Ian’s black and white composition of the wagons on the concentric tracks leading to the detailed mess in the foreground. It certainly has an historic and gritty atmosphere about it. It asks a lot of questions which I think would make it a winner. Wow, that’s you you call earrings! I was going to say well spotted, but you cant miss them.April 26, 2013 at 9:14 am #3933

Well, here that’s clearly true; but there are also several more!April 26, 2013 at 1:55 pm #3949
Red & Green
Urban guerrilla shop?

Another intriguing set of pictures Ian. I like the last one best. You caught the walking guy in exactly the right spot for me. The shape of the A boards make a good foreground. I like the guy leaning into the van and the flags leading back giving the photo depth. This is my type of photograph.
I like the humour in the urban guerrilla which was well spotted.
I think the ‘lock down’ shot is a social comment of the way some people will steal thing that aren’t tied down.
‘Red & Green’ is an interesting design shot that I would have missed. You’ll have to explain this one to me!
I like the angle of the lines and the contrasting colours in the Boxes shot. It again shows your dry sense of humour with the ‘Handle with care’ type.
Thanks for showing us these.April 28, 2013 at 10:29 am #3960
Peter >>> Thanks very much for your appreciative and perceptive comments on the last set of photos. The ‘red and green’ image appealed to me because it was a sort of ‘found Mondrian’ – blocks of striking complentary colour intensifying each other. (I was on a bit of a ‘found images’ spree that afternoon!)
