    You're on a roll, Mark :) Stark is a cracker, a perfect arrangement, well exposed and processed to show deep shadows and controlled highlights. Over is an original idea, well arranged with lovely tones in the liquid, and I like the cropped version just a tad more.

    So on to week 5 and Age well I think 5 weeks in it doesn't seem right that I haven't yet used a picture of a Mini so it's time to put that right (aren't you a lucky lot?:rolleyes:)

    There's my 1 year old and nearly 19 year old! I've owned them both from new...

    This is one I don't think quite work as the classic is too small in the picture

    Cheers Dave I've only ever done the L2B in a MINI as I couldn't leave the classic on the tube station carpark without stressing out that it would get pinched while we were in London!

    Personally I'm not keen on the processing in the first so I'd go for the second as a pick but good story and nice comparison of the same marque at different ages.

    I like the processing on the 1st Image Mark, makes an interesting difference and shows how much you care about your cars, rather rare these days.

    Thanks Allan I posted the wrong image for the third one and didn't realise until I'd posted it!

    Thanks Pete one thing I've always done is looked after my cars something mom and dad drummed into me.

    Thanks Dominic see my next post ;)

    Cheers David I had to get my brother to watch me forward to get the headlight image I know I could of got closer really but that was scary enough as I didn't want damage either of them!

    The background is quite busy, but in the sepia version that does work! I also like the B&W edit of #4.

    I like the original image. Nice to have the blunt pencil on the left, sharpening, then the sharpened on the right. Cool idea.

    Difficult to decide between the first three... I would say the first one of them, but I also like the pin, nice and sharp and very good DoF.

    All your Sharp images are right on theme Sir, with definately the drawing pin shot being the strongest contender for me.(y)

    A great selection of images and subjects for Sharp, Mark. The pencils are a good take on the theme and well laid out, but my favourite of the set is the drawing pin; it not only draws your eye straight to the sharp point but the colourful out of focus pins provide an attractive backdrop.

    I prefer the Pin, your dof is very thin and on point. Just as it's something I want to try out I think you could have tried focus stacking just on thet first pin


    The pencils look a bit one directional/flat, there is not elevation the those images.
    The pin needles are good, but you left a stray branch partly on the left of the picture, if you crop it out you would have a nice clean image, which maybe better.

    The pencils ... difficult to choose ... #2 has the softest lighting and the cleanest shavings as the light comes from a different direction. More work needed. ;)

    I drawn to the drawing pin, it's well composed with the oof others behind. Of the pencil shots, it's the second one for me.

    Age - I quite like the processing in #1. it has a bit of a stencil feel to it perhaps?
    But #4 is the killer image for me. Less is more and you can't see that the wheels aren't minilites or steels.
    Sharp - Blimey Mark, 5 offerings! #4 for me, it's Tack Sharp (groan). I like the way it pops from the background, which has some really great colours in it.

    Aged - I think an image of just the original mini would have been better, used to have a few myself but my right foot and their engine size don't seem to work well together ... :laugh
    Sharp - The pencil theme is spot on for me.
