    My first time commenting on your challenge and you have made a great start IMO. The best for me is your latest shot for sugar. Very inventive for the subject matter aswell as the set up. A great shot well executed. (y)

    Thanks for all the great comments much appreciated.

    Thank you Lizzy,
    Yes I think your right I have a think for a few days of what I want trying not to pick the obvious, then find the best way to shot it, I did this shot after reading the can on a break at work as I didn’t have a paper to read

    Really good shot, very impressed.

    I was thinking along a similar line but tbh I don't think it'll be a patch on this.

    Must say a big thank you for all your great comments :clap:.
    I think the picture must be good as nobody has commented on the one thing that’s been bugging the hell out of me, it’s the yellow band around the top saying multipack :banghead: next time I will buy a real can

    Not going to have a lot of time this week so I came up with this while sitting on the best seat in the house. Simple secure fixing but tried to take it a bit different thru 2 mirrors while trying to show the fixing on the wall as well but not enough room to get it all in.

    Canon 5d mk2: 24-105mm L. F7.1 At 1/160 ISO 800. 430 mk11 flash

    Good take on the theme Trev ...focus where it's needed & love the aqua color against the silver :clap:

    Minor niggles...I may have tried to clone out the dolpins...just pull my eye a little & either get the whole of the righthand silver fixing thingy in or crop it our....can't decide whch would be better though:LOL:

    Keep up the good work mister (y)

    As mentioned above, perfect focusing on the main part of the picture, and really like the idea of doing it through reflections from multiple mirrors.
    Lovely shot, with lovely focus + Lovely colour to the shot to.

    Hi, Nice shot . Lovely capture of colours and a'clean' finish. Excellent focus and good use of dof.
    But even with your explanation i am not sure that I quite get the theme from the pic. I am sure that it is there' as others have seen it' but my mind just won't pick it up.:thinking:

    Liking your secure shot very much. Nice abstract. A bit obscure to get the theme bur personally that doesn't worry me at all.
    I do find the OOF thing on the left of the frame very distracting. I think the shot would work better if you PS'd it out?? - Not crop it out as I like the balance of the existing crop.

    Fear – Nicely captured image

    Sigh – Well handled shot

    Sweet – I really like the idea of showing all the sugar coming from the can. Well thought out

    Secure - Nice colours and a simple image which works well.

    A great idea and a very good pic to go with it! Shame you didn't have more room. I think it would work well concentrating on the images in the mirror

    You thought of this on the throne?? You spend way too much time on there lol

    Love the thinking behind this, you really don't go for simple ideas eh.

    Colours grab me, something calming about this image.

    Another good week for you Trevor :)

    That's a great idea that Trevor, I don't mind not being able to see all of it, the fixing is the main bit - really like the set-up (y)

    Thanks for your comments all.
    Know what you mean about the bit on the left I wasn’t sure as to whether to include it or put one up without it.

    Week 6 Industry
    Thought this week I would get outside and do a bit of landscape didn’t get the shot I wanted due to the weather even after making 2 visits to the place but decided to go with this one with the sun trying to break through.
    Went with the b/w version and tried to make it a bit grainy was a bit of a windy day and tried something new a landscape with a 100-400mm lens



    Canon 5d mk2: 100-400mm L. F14 At 1/2000 ISO 1600.

    Good work Trevor (y)
    The God rays shining down on the bleak industrial landscape are a winner.
    Your processing adds to the industrial nature. Well spotted. Iain

    Lovely shot, works really well in B&W.
    PP is spot on also, good contrast between the towers and the sky. The sun beams are a lucky addition to the shot to, they work really well for the picture.

    Hi,
    good shot and b&w works well. Like the contrast between the dynamic of the sky, sunlight, smoke etc and the stillness of the water

    Nice one Trev, I guessed I was going to see someone pop up a Fawley shot, I thought it was going to be me if I'm honest :LOL: As said the light beams are a great addition. ;)
