WOW red telephone box still in situ next to an old gas lamp, I remember there being loads of red boxes in Kingston Upon Thames when I lived up near there just by C&A. Stunning composition and the colours really pop.

Inflatable Stonehenge, that must really keep the druids chasing it round the world at summer solstice.. lovely perspective and stunning crop.

I like the way the lamp post is the star of the show, with just the right amount of the phonebox showing. Great colours, great perspective and I personally think a grey sky wouldn't have taken anything away from it.

nice perspective and an interesting object looks a little underexposed to me. changing the sky seems to be a thing these days not really a fan.

Tall - can see it reaching for the sky so fits the theme, was there an photo possible standing to the right so that there was isolation between the three elements?

Ta I agree, I think it works.
Ooooh a fake blue sky .....at least mine was real :) the perspective does the job Tim, it looks suitably tall.
I should take a few sky shots of my own to use in the fakery ;)
I love it! red/green/blue.

Cheers. it had to be something like this or else it could have been very boring indeed.
Lovely perspective Tim. On both of the subjects
:)
Why did I not see this in you eggscelent photo :sorry: Doh..
hehe

The telephone boxes are still there, lying down (at least they were the last time I was in kingston town centre, which must be a year ago now.

Thanks, I wanted some of the phone box, but I also wanted it partially hidden and in the background. I think I got it about right.
The sky really was rubbish though!

I pulled the shadows up as much as I dared from the jpg, but actually I quite like it darkish. The fake sky is also quite dark (at least it's not fluffy clouds), so I thought it sort of fitted.
Would you have known the sky was fake if I hadn't mentioned it?

Possibly, though then I would have got other objects in the background.
But actually, I wanted the lamppost layered on top of the phone box, so that the complementary colours were together like that :)

Works well from that angle.. I can imagine it would be pretty drab with a grey sky so can perhaps forgive the replacement this time :exit:

:) Yes, it wasn't the most inspiring.

Cheers, it was deliberate.
Nice selection of colours and I like the composition.

I wouldn't have spotted the swap if you hadn't told me...
Well, I like to be honest about these things. I should shoot some of my own skies though, rather than using the inbuilt ones.
A bit behind with comments I'm afraid!

Week 6 - Pair

A pair of DC Super Villains - Harley & Ivy.

Lit with a couple of bare gelled speedlights (blue & orange) at 1/128th power (lowest) and f/9.
I feel the light was soft enough given that the Fresnel heads on the speedlights are much larger than the lego figures.

Does this count as filling the frame? I'll see what the comments feel before ticking that off.
Edit - Consensus is no then...

The gel has done a good job. The colours on the figures have also come out well.
Not sure about filling the frame I'm afraid.

Really like the lighting effort you've gone to with this. Guessing they're out at a nightclub somewhere? I definitely think the gels add atmosphere and interest.

It's not really a filled frame for me, but it's not my decision :)

Ok, so I had to look up DC films... I'm certainly learning about a variety of subjects in the 52!
Looks good to me but not what I would categorise as filling the frame... sorry ;)

Cheers, I do enjoy playing with coloured lighting when I get a chance
Nice lighting and fits the theme well.

It wasn't much effort tbh. rogue gels fit quite nicely and standing a couple of speedlights on their side 3" from the models was quite straightforward.
Hardest bit was finding the batteries ;)

The Harley & Ivy animated series was on C4 recently I think.
They're almost holding hands, must be a couple pair.
No, you were right the first time. it has been confirmed as cannon in issue 25 of Gotham City Sirens.

I did think I was pushing it a bit for filling the frame. Ah well.
I'll have to fit that into my 'snappers choice' when I get around to it...

Hi Tim,

My first visit to your 52 and enjoyed looking through your shots to date. Loved the "dirty" shot, very well done and good fun. I hadn't heard about the inflatable stonehenge, would have been fun with the kids.

Lego characters are always good for a photo. Nice bright colours, does the image in the background have a relevance, otherwise I do find it slightly distracting.

I like the lighting Tim, it brings out those bright colours nicely.

Stonehenge was fun with the kids. Not sure how I first heard of it, might have been on Diamond Geezer's blog
The background to pair doesn't have any relevance, it was just to hand. Viewed on this laptop it's dark and subtle, but I have noticed on my Benq it does jump out more. More distance and maybe a flag would have helped.
Model CosPlay figures, what next. Interesting and works well.

Pete
Did you miss my Dominatrix Harley and Deadpool from last year then? ;)
I'd have thought they did fill the frame and am now a bit worried about managing to do this myself. I almost ticked it off with my stone picture. Hmm

Very colourful Pair image. I like the background, which with the gels, does make it look night clubbish - as someone suggested.
The gels did help make it more interesting :)

Week 9 - Reflection

Very much not a reflection of, rather reflections in.

The light was glinting off the loco nicely for maybe 5 minutes yesterday evening while it was being delivered.
If it had arrived earlier, it was dull and grey, later and the light would have been gone.

Anyway... A visitor to the Mid Hants from the Bodmin and Wenford Railway, which all being well will be out to play at the end of May.

Like this Tim and good enough for the theme, as the reflection on the 6435 is showing some sky. Can't wait till the model ones of these start again in Hove park as the owners spend many amounts of money on them for the rides.
