Great idea for the theme Brrnd and a good looking image. Looks good against the white background

I like the fun of the shot for pleasure Bernd. Well thought out - perfect for the theme!
Another excellent piece of thought for tool. Very clever and well processed to draw the eye into the shot.

Plenty of that! Cheers Chris!

Good thinking Bernd and it does look like it`s never seen a hard days work too.
Cheers Dave!

The opposable thumb eh? Nice.
nicely captured and the slight vignette draws the eye to the subject.
Thank you Tim! Imagine we had opposable toes too...

Great idea Bernd, plenty of detail and callous free....an unused tool !
Thank you Clive!

You could make a fortune on that - "one careful owner" etc..? ;)

Like the lateral thinking.
Thanks!

A very handy tool :). Nice take on the theme and well shot.
Thank you Helen, good pun!

Got to hand it to you - that's well thought out :)

I have just finished laughing at all the comments following your Pleasure image, Bernd, mainly about the shifty looking blokes all walking past or away from the shop! Lots to look at and colourful, but I did wonder about the horizontals and whether it's just a slight slope in the road or kerb giving the impression that the shop is on the slant?

The hand for Tools is a clever take on the theme - straightforward, well taken and detailed (y)

I would have loved to have seen the soho shot at night.

But I understand your reticence to take one at all, let alone do it in the dark.

There are definitely some people that wouldn't like to be caught going in or coming out of a shop like that.

A good bit of thinking there and well executed.
Cheers Pete!

That's a tremendously inventive slant on the theme Bernd!
Well balanced and exposed, and the lighting on the background is just right.
Nice work!(y)
Cheers Gareth!

Well lit, well thought out too.
Thank you Dominic!

I don't think anyone outside of slapstick comedy movies discards banana skins, but here we go. I know that this could have been better framed, I was shooting in portrait orientation and my L bracket let the camera slowly slide down. I have seen it only when I was done and I couldn't be bothered to start again... Said L bracket should also be discarded.

The Barbican Estate is one of my favourite photographic subjects. Partly because I work right next to it, but also because I'm a fan of brutalist architecture. It also contains Europe's largest performing arts centre (says Wikipedia) which I am visiting quite a lot. And at one point I was contemplating buying an overpriced flat in there, with not enough storage space and no control over the heating.

Like this, I am with you on this type of architecture, like the composition and the mono suits it well.

I do love a bit of Brutalist, it was a shame to see Sampson House being demolished, Baynard House is still there (Including *that* totem) but I always found it a little less interesting to look at.
Works well in B&W.
Was there an opportunity to keep the top of the 2 closest lights in the shot (or was there something in the way). With them being *just* cropped into makes it feel accidental and not deliberate.

This takes me back.. I used to walk through there every day on the way to Moorgate station. Nice composition and good tonal range in the conversion.
