    Hi, there, I like the clinical feel of your secure. I'd prefer if the bracket wasn't visible to the left.

    Industrial, yeah, I like the B&W bleakness of this one. The wisps of smoke from the towers really adds to the feel of the photograph.

    Cheers.

    That's a really nice shot Trevor - I love the way the smoke is at a similar angle to the sun rays, really looks good, Nice processing too, suits the theme (y)

    Ah good old Fawley! I thought of getting exactly that shot, but I doubt I'd have achieved as good a result. Love the sky and the conversion.

    Great shot, I'd be tempted to crop a little of the water off the bottom as the industry and that sky are the real shot.

    That is exactly what I had in mind for my industry shot, but where I failed miserably, you have had spectacular success. A really nice image that I like a lot.

    Cheers Paul I did look at cropping it a bit but wasn’t happy with how it looked so I kept it to within the rule of thirds

    Week 7 Root

    Struggled a bit this I’ve week had a few idea’s but though I would go with this one not a 100% happy with the pp as I had trouble opening it in Photoshop because it was bank notes there must be some kind of filter to recognise this, :shrug:

    The only editing I could do was in the raw converter then save it as a jpeg.

    Anyway it’s the Root of all evils some would say


    Canon 7d: 60mm Macro. F8 At 6 sec ISO 100.

    Hi, quite like this one and bang on theme...first one to do this interpretation so well done.

    It looks a little orange on my laptop.

    Hmm, note sure about the black BG...maybe closer in or crop?

    Cheers.

    Good thinking Trev. That one didn't occur to me, reckon l could do with being a bit more evil though:)

    Your industry shot works really well for me too.
    The diagonal lines and use of long lens both work well.
    And is perfect in gritty B&W. Mike

    I was toying with trying the same idea. Think I agree with the previous comments about the WB. Still a good image though and unique take on the theme. (y)

    Cracking industry shot, love it. Like the root shot too, although as others have mentioned it does look a little orange, other than that a good shot and great take on the theme.

    Good shot for root. I was thinking about this take as well, but went with something different. I think a closer crop would look good, and I see an orange cast too, it looks ok though.

    Hi Trevor
    Root - clever idea. You won't be surprised to know that it shows orange on my pc too!:D

    Strange about not being able to open in Photoshop. i must try that.

    And over 100 quid - you going on the Classifieds soon:thinking:

    Thank you for all your comments
    I agree with the WB issue of it looking a bit orange, on doing my Raw Processing I then tried to open to CS5 and got the following :banghead:
    I found the only thing I could do was to save it strait as a Jpeg but it saved with the Orange tint to it and being unable to open it in Photoshop I had to go with what I had. :shrug:

    Have now managed to open in photoshop and posted my edit on my Flickr (y)

    lol, in case you wanna print your own?

    in Low Fell (Gateshead) there's a church with a huge sign outside saying 'the love of money is the root of all evil' and that's all I could think of while doing this week's theme :LOL:

    Hi Trevor


    superb shot for Industry...love the processing...really adds to the feel of industry :clap:

    Root....crit on the color cast's been mentioned...can't belive an editing programm is set to not allow you to edit a note ! Agree with andy re the crop to lose the BG thoug...or maybe pile the money closer to get BG all the way round :thinking:

    Onwards & upwards to week 8 (y)

    Week 8 Handmade.

    I had a shot lined up for this week that was until Alby got there first :banghead:, so I have gone with my second choice borrowed this off my girlfriend as she used to make the flies for fly fishing and she still had a few left over, this was my first real go at macro and found it very hard to get the focus right and get a big DOF and lighting as this thing was so small, to give you an idea of the size its mounted on a normal everyday needle


    Canon 7d: 60mm Macro. F22 At 1/250 ISO 100.

    Well done for a first macro! A sedge I think? It's always said that the eye has to be in focus, and it is :) Nice.
