I'm with Gareth on this, the weathered look to the daisy adds texture and something intangible to the shot. I don't think pristine would have come across as well, certainly not in B&W.
Thanks GarethGreat image Carl!
The wear and tear on the daisy adds a little something special to an already first rate image.
Looks really nice in mono, and the depth of field is spot on.
Cheers RobLovely composition. Suits B&W well.
Thanks BobAnother stunning image, Carl. Perfect.
Thank you DanielLove the 'Open' shot Carl! Great job on Cold too!
Cheers AllanNice simple and to the point
Thanks a lot SusiePerfect for the theme, perfect focus, the clean simple lines accentuated bythe b&w, I really like it, definitely ones of my faves of the week.
Thanks Dave!Nicely done and composed!
Thanks DaveAs has been said, a good shot and to the point.
Cheers IanI really like this - there's something a bit weird about all the snow on the flower and all so smooth and tidy
Cheers Mandy, it's a fantastic lens! I spent a while picking between the 35 and 22 lol.Nice cold photo and love it in mono. As a real cold feel to it. That lens looks lovely. Must resist. I went for the 35mm F2 instead. Very drawn to this photo.
Cheers Chris, I considered the 1.4 but went for the 2 as it was lighter and cheaper.Carl, the sunflower is really good. I was tempted with the 23 f2 but went for the 35 f1.4 tempted to have rethink after seeing this
Thanks for the comments AndreaThat's a very good shot, Carl - B&W and shallow DOF are good choices, and it's tack sharp to show the textures where it needs to, especially in the foreground snow
Cheers Tim!I'm with Gareth on this, the weathered look to the daisy adds texture and something intangible to the shot. I don't think pristine would have come across as well, certainly not in B&W.
Thanks Allan.Looks like you both had a productive night, the guy waiting stands our against the black BG, it’s a simple but effective image.
Thanks Bob, yes I was surprised at how well the IS worked, glad the chap was sat still though!Great composition in this shot. And spot on lighting. Hand held too! Well done.
Thank you Dave.This is a very good shot and well taken too handheld, goes great in mono and he seems to really pop out at the viewer.
Cheers Gareth, I think Fuji must have got things right with their image stabilisation on the 18-55.Terrific image Carl.
B&W is superb, lighting and composition, ditto!
Handheld at 1/12th of a second?...impressive!
Very nice work indeed!
Thanks Chris!Nice Carl and the darkness just sets it off nicely in my opinion
Thank you Andrea.A lovely contrasty shot that works well in B&W, and well composed too.
Ha yes, I wondered if anyone would spot that it was the same bloke if I didn't mention it. Thank you Mandy.I was about to say this looks like the same guy that was in Dom Rim's photo and I read your entry first. Very nice image in black and white
Thanks Ian.Very cool shot Carl. I like the simplicity of it with so much black around it, drawing you into the shot
Cheers Peter.It works well I really like it in b&w with the background in black it makes him really stand out.
Thank you Jim.Absolutely fantastic image, really well done.
Thanks DaveRough is nicely on theme Carl, looks good in mono plus like that you put the chisel in shot too. Good textures and tones in the whole image.
Cheers RickWaiting is a nice shot, I like that.
Thank you Gareth!I really like the textures in those wood chips.
Great mono treatment too, the contrasts work well.
Rough cut chips on a rough work bench....perfect theme fitment.
Nice work Carl.
Thanks BobGood contrast. Clean-looking, 'new' but rough wood chips on an old well-used and therefore dirty and rough workbench.
Thanks for the feedback Tim, I think you're right and it does look a bit flat. I'll take another look at it in a sec and post it up againHi Carl,
Waiting - Thought I'd commented on this one...
High ISO, that's something I find with the XT-2, if the focus is spot on you don't notice high ISO, yet if the focus is off, even ISO200 can look noisy. This one works well
Rough - To my eyes it looks a bit on the muddy side. I feel a little playing with a levels adjustment, to correct the white would enhance it no end. Works for the theme though
Thanks Allan, I had a look at the colour version but I think it lacked the oomph of the B&W. I think the light paint stands out better on the darker bench, whereas in colour it's just various shades of cream and blue on a brown bench.I agree with Tim above bit of a lift might help or perhaps it might be worth using the colour version
Thanks Andrea!Hi Carl, that's a good idea and use of 'props' for Rough. I do think a tweak of levels or contrast might make a big difference and bring out more of those rough textures.
Cheers Lee, initially the chisel was up the other way but the text written on the front was a bit distracting. I think I should have taken it the right way up and then cloned the text out maybe.I like the shot for Rough. Well seen and a good composition although I echo others comments re a levels tweak. It took me a few moments to work out that the tool was a chisel as the blade is facing downward.
Thank you Gareth, much appreciatedYour Nagaoka camera is an amazing object!
Fantastic detail and such a great image of a truly beautiful piece of equipment.
And the images you have taken with it are spectacular.
Excellent work indeed Carl!
Thank you TimSuch a nice looking beast of a camera, and some nice images posted from it
It works really well in mono as it matches the age of the camera.
Thanks Ian. It's actually a really simple device- A lens at one end and a film holder at the other end, with bellows in the middle to move the lens back and forth to adjust focus. Once you take the lens off it folds up nice and small, weighing less than a lot of DSLRs.Nice rough image Carl. All the elements work well together
That camera is amazing. I know nothing about old camera but that looks an incredible beast of a camera. And it certainly appears to take lovely pics too. Great colour to them
Thank you DaveCracking take on object Carl, goes great in mono and looks a great camera.
Thanks AllanLovely camera and a great picture of it thanks for showing the results you can get with it also
Cheers BobYet another great shot, Carl.
Thanks a lot Lee!Stunning bit of kit for your Object photo. Thanks for sharing some of your shots too and how it works & folds up etc. I look forward to a 52 shot or two being taken with it.
