Day 32 (Feb 1st)


Day 32 (Feb 1st) - Macro of speaker by mattwright87, on Flickr

I was trying to capture a close up of the speakers I have for iPod dock. When trying to keep it exposed well - but retain the original black finish to the metal it just want working.
However - I really liked the detail and DoF and wanted to use the image. When playing around with White balance I managed to get this really funky and cool colour
Any thoughts?

Matt

Yeahh, I bet that really is a ball ache! I'd be well and truly stuck, I don't get home until about 6pm and it's only just starting to still be light at that time :LOL:

Nice shot for day 37, tells us it's getting lighter for when you get home from work ;)

We'll be expecting even better shots in a few weeks :LOL:

Or rather tells us the head teacher said all meeting were cancelled after school:D - so I left at a slightly more respectable 4pm (as opposed to being pitch black already!)

Thanks

Matt :)

I can see why you like today's it's wonderful the colours are great in it (y) plus it's nice to have some evidence that the sun still exists (y) but that waterfall one is great and my favourite since my last visit (y)

My new toy arrived today (Samyang 8mm fisheye!)
Day 39 Keeping a (fish)eye on the fire!

Day 39 - Keeping a (fish)eye on the fire! by mattwright87, on Flickr

Not the greatest shot in the world - but i wanted to use the fisheye to show some real distorotion - i know i have used the fire before - but i feel this gives a completly different perspective

I think that's just the way it's cast? I.e. it's not smooth, but rough. Great focus on it, though. Very sharp!
Yes that's correct!

Been through your stream and think you have a great set of posts :)

365 is a challenge way beyond what i can imagine attempting and good luck and congrats on keeping it up till now!

(Also added you to flickr... easier for me to follow them there!)

nice images... i just don't have the time for a 366, but maybe should make the time as i guess that is what it is really about?
Not my thread I know, but at a committed POTDer I can really recommend this type if challenge (y) I cannot lie, it's a massive commitment, but as is demonstrated on TP there is a massive amount of support to anyone that undertakes this type of challenge (y) we have sticky's to make challenges easy to find and a support thread too (y) so if you want to take the plunge you can do so at anytime (y) and you can set the rules as you think you could manage (y)
