Thanks very much for the kind comments. As ever, greatly appreciated.
Yep liking that one too... real nice roots
Yep me too, nice take on difficult theme. Like the POV and the colours
Lovely colours on the roots, it would be great to see them closer up as well!!
Root works very well, like the angle of view.
Just catching up on your thread,
Sweet:- Nice one, I like it.
Secure:- Simple but oh so effective.
Industry:- Nice colours, like the way you've shot this one through railings.
Root:- those are some roots, like the perspective.
Hi Robert. Love your industry shot, and the way it's shot. Root is a cracking shot too, for me the angle is spot on
Hi Robert, I really like those Harland and Wolf cranes, when you think what was achieved there it was amazing. Have you tried a mono conversion. May work well?
'Root' is very nice I like the soft tones. it's a very nice image.
Thank you for the comments one and all. It's what keeps me going.
Just trying to catch up on things after a really busy week, with hardly any time to take any photo's, but I got one for handmade...
I don't smoke, but I used to and I used to roll my own handmade cigs. For this I popped down the shop for rollling papers and opned up a teabag. I used a single flash on a stand, direct at my hands with my assistant using the remote. I didn't spend anywhere near as much time doing this as I would have liked to.
week 8 handmade by robertalexandershaw, on Flickr
Liking you root shot, mice pov.
Handmade - being a smoker, this is bang on theme and a very good shot
Thought about doing that myself.
Root, like the low POV and colours. I'd prefer a potrait orientation and the front roots look slightly OOF.
Hand made, I'm liking the sepia (?) colour and the close POV. Nice rugged hands and the thumb leads the eye into the photograph.
Some great photos in your 52, Industry is fantastic and so is Hand Made good thinking and well taken.
Trying to get round as many 52s as possible.
I'm liking your set especially secure, simple and to the point. Handmade is good composition with the sepia against the dark background emphasising the hands rugginess.
Good work on handmade Robert. Quite a simple but effective take on the theme, the lighting works well, lots of detail in the hands and great composition. You've nailed this for one you would've liked to have spent more time on. Iain
Handmade - Nice thought and shot Robert, like the processing, Sharp where it needs to be and some nice detail... spot on
haha had to look twice at the homemade shot then haha, great picture.
That's a good shot for handmade. Great DOF and I like the colour tones.
direction - great shot, love the shapes in the wheels
Fear - simply Great. B&W and grain for me pls.
sigh - another great shot, very abstract.
sweet - really good idea for a picture.
industry - love this shot, great colours and contrast. the person adds a human element. Great shot.
handmade - works very well. I like that you use yourself as the model too. Nicely lit.
Handmade is spot on the composition, gritty colour and dof
Handmade is perfect; wouldn't change a thing!
love your image for handmade.....good lighting , nice detail in the fingers , simple but very effective & right on theme ....good one mister
great handmade shot, everything is just right.
Well I think that the others have said it all so all you get is great pic I really like it. Well done
excellent Sigh and excellent Handmade both really good b and w.
Thanks very much for the replies. I know how time consuming it is trying to reply to posts.
Week 9 Money.
I wasn't too happy with this shot, but my planned idea didn't work, so this was my plan B.
I got some pennies and cleaned them in lime juice. Placed them on paper and two off camera flashes with a bit of bounce.
Week 9 Money by robertalexandershaw, on Flickr
Handmade - nice and simple, very well lit and I like it alot.
Money - love the shine on the coins. Really nice composition and good result!
Fantastic money pic love the colours
Great colours. Nice DoF and composition.
Thanks for the replies.
I'll let the picture do the talking on this weeks rather boring picture ...
Week 11 Win by robertalexandershaw, on Flickr
LOL, that was another of my ideas I have to admit but kept forgetting to get a blinking ticket
Loving the interpretation!!
I’m a bit behind on this one
Industry – I like the composition of the new cranes (maybe too yellow for me) and the old gate
Root – Roots of a tree is a difficult choice as they don’t always make a good picture but in this case I think you’ve pulled it off
Handmade – I like this one. The tone you’ve given it compliments the subject well
Money – Well lit and nice use of DoF
Win – Just spotted that the numbers match. I hope you’ll remember us as you order lots of shiny new camera gear LOL
Nice clean shot and great focus on WIN. The matching numbers is cool and how is the new car lol.
Just to let you know your link to youe secure photo seems down on page one.
Thank you. Fixed the link. Thanks for pointing that out to me.
Win...nice one. Well processed....not real is it if it is you're dedicated
seem to have missed your thread - sorry
Handmade - simple and effective, I like the light
Money - not sure about the background/base - looks blue on the right and white on the left. sharp focus on the centre
Win - how did you do that with the winning numbers? Right hand edge looks a bit dirty - if it is the edge of the paper then maybe show a bit more or remove altogether
Great win shot, very good idea
Just popped on to check after a busy day spending my winnings.
Thank you for your comments.
Money - Very shiny coins them... nicely taken, nice dof
Win - Nicely staged shot that Robert, I really like that
