I'm extremelyashamed to say that this is one of my wood auger bits, that is very, VERY, dull indeed (in fact it's been a long time since it was sharp, and it's also beyond recovery I think), so this is my offering for the DULL theme.

Very nice photograph Jim. One to make you think.
Thanks, it certainly does

Perfect composition, and beautiful colours.(y)
A poignant image indeed!
Thanks Gareth

Flower
Good idea. A little vignette might look good too.
Thanks, I tried with vignette but didn't really like it.

Very nicely done Jim. Just enough DoF, not over done.
Thanks for the kind words

Flower, simple but very effective.
Thanks, the idea just jumped out at me, I agree that the simplicity adds to the effect.

Looks sharper than most of mine ;)
not really sure how you would sharpen one of those though...
A nice close up, an unusual subject really.
Thanks for the comments. These ones are a nightmare to sharpen, but that one is way past it - I used it to drill down into an old fence post, it hit concrete, nails, and a host of other stuff it shouldn't have!

Dull
I like the pov and the muted colour.
Thanks

Nothing to be ashamed of and I'm sure there are one or two similar in my toolbox.

Like the subtle lighting just on the top part and the view angle. The shallow depth-of-field makes the tip stands out.
I should be ashamed as a former carpenter & joiner, I was taught to always take good care of my tools (this happened when I was in a particular rush to get an old fence post out of the ground so that some other work could be done). The remainder of my tools are well looked after (in the main) ;)

Very good macro of the auger bit would have liked to see it a little sharper on the tip maybe a bit of stacking might have helped

I like the creativity of the idea and the way you have composed it.

Hi Jim,
  • Free Week - Hmm, interesting choice to do a rough day as a long exposure. You get the feel for the weather but without the crashing waves. I wouldn't have thought to do that.
  • Near - I do like it, I think it's the use of different blues that does it.

I agree with Tim's comment on Near, it has warmth from the varnish tone of the boat too

Hi Jim,
You've taken some cracking shots since I last dropped by.
Empty is very nicely framed with shadow and the furniture is well lit.
I prefer shot 2 for building. I really like the pp that you have chosen.
I also prefer shot 2 for Old as well. The blue and the gold work perfectly.
Flower is very poignant. Very good idea for the theme.
Dull is very nicely taken and it certainly fits the theme!
Your snappers choice is lovely. I must get my 10 stop out again.
Near is very nice. Beautiful light on the boat.

Hi Jim

Dull, nice details in the dull part of that bit, I like the way the backgound goes out of focus.

Snappers Choice, is different to normal 10stop images, B&W works well with it.

Near, another nice image,cleary showing the near and far. Nice colours.

Snappers choice
That looks great, I wish I lived near the coast, instead of landlocked Shropshire.

Near
Good composition and I like the muted colours.

Lovely clouds and lead-in line from the left.

That`s a lovely image Jim, nice to see a bit of blue sky amongst the moody clouds.
Thanks Dave, the sky was lovely today

Very nice shot. Not seen that colour sky up here for a while!
It's been a while for us down here too! But, we gad a nice warm day today.
