This is a subject I keep going back to- but as yet not found the right formula. (it is actually my original invention)– this was getting some where but lacks sunshine to create shadows through the spokes of –its called a wheel.March 17, 2014 at 6:01 am #6028
Personally, I prefer the first one, because of its simple visual design and strong single subject. Very painterly, Ken!March 17, 2014 at 10:21 am #6029
Agree the close up is better Ken. Its got some lovely texture to it.March 17, 2014 at 2:50 pm #6030
THANKS IAN AND MEG–yes I agree–just need some sun for shadows–hope some one does not sand paper it all smooth befroe I get it right.March 24, 2014 at 12:49 pm #6071
I was having a stroll through some old images and had an experiment with this one just for the hell of it. Thought it qualified by the skin of it’s teeth! 🙂 For what it’s worth … I quite like the Sepia version.
It’s called Rag & BoneMarch 24, 2014 at 1:10 pm #6073
The sepia one is my favourite – very atmospheric, with an antique quality that really suits the subject.March 24, 2014 at 1:32 pm #6076
Thanks Ian … mine too. To achieve it I converted to mono in Nik and added a film effect & Vignette, then just moved the color temperature slider from cool to warm in windows gallery.March 25, 2014 at 6:56 pm #6085

Hi Ken. Just to be different I prefer your second image because I prefer the angle it’s been taken from and like the contrast of the small and large wheels. I also like the contrast of the warm toned rust and cool toned flaking paint. Reminds me of my old car!
Miss D, I prefer the first shot as I think the colours work well. I also like the black and white shot, but think the sepia version is a little bit too contrasty. Love the moody sky and composition though.March 28, 2014 at 10:54 pm #6107
I think you are right about the sepia being too contrasty Pete especially on their faces. I does look better bigger on my screen but probably so does everyone elses 😉 I like the vintage feel of the last shot but have probably gone a little too far. Just experimenting with different effects so I didn’t go in for the fine details too much. Maybe one day eh?March 29, 2014 at 8:44 pm #6110
SHIRE HORSES–IS THERE ANYTHING MORE QUINTESSENTIALLY ENGLISH and so handsome yet beautiful. People rave about grotesque wierd montages and I make no apologise —as a beautiful photograph like this I could have framed on my wall and never tire of looking at it. Could anyone really tell me they would prefer one of those wiered so called creations that would not grace the small room. Lovely photograph-colour -sepia –luv them all-wish I had taken it.March 29, 2014 at 10:07 pm #6115
Thank you kindly Ken. I was experimenting with a vintage look with this image from a day out with Meg and Pete at Blist Hill some time ago. No public spoiling the shot and a decent sky. Just need to back off the contrast and improve the detail in the figures a bit. Didn’t take it this month of course but did only just experiment with it. Must look out more old stuff!
