That's a cracking shot.
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.
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
Thank you all, the rays only came out for 5 mins was really lucky
Cheers Alby this wasnt my first choice of location but got a bit of right place at right time for the light.
Thank you was wanting a red sky really
Thank you Robert
yes your right about the bracket have the retake on my Flickr
Thank you Dark night it was good to get outdoors to get a shot this week
Great shot, the weather didn't let you down Look forward to more
yep, this is how industry shots should look, dirty and dark love it
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.
nice shot, as others have said i like the B+W. would be nice to see the colour if you have it still.
Like the processing on your industry pic Trevor, works very well adding some great atmosphere to the scene
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.
Liking Industry a lot, love the rays and PP.
Thank you all for the good comments
Thanks Darren the colour version is on my frickr
Cheers Paul I did look at cropping it a bit but wasnt happy with how it looked so I kept it to within the rule of thirds
Week 7 Root
Struggled a bit this Ive week had a few ideas 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 its the Root of all evils some would say

Root 3 by zeb2012, on Flickr
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?
Good thinking Trev. That one didn't occur to me, reckon l could do with being a bit more evil though
Definitely a good and different take
Also looks a little orange here 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.
I love the take on the theme that didn't even come to me well done great shot
Great interpretation of Root, it does look a bit orange though. Otherwise, great shot
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.
:nono: it's the love of it
Good interpretation of the theme, well thought out
Good interpretation but I agree the WB is out.
Root - clever idea. You won't be surprised to know that it shows orange on my pc too!
Strange about not being able to open in Photoshop. i must try that.
And over 100 quid - you going on the Classifieds soon
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
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

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
Now that's what you call a smart program
That's a cracking idea Trevor... theme wise, on the money
superb shot for Industry...love the processing...really adds to the feel of industry
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
Onwards & upwards to week 8
Nice idea. Harry Enfield would like it too, even with tint.
You cant edit it! How clever I guess...
Nice idea and nice shot.
I like the money shot. Good take on root.
Week 8 Handmade.
I had a shot lined up for this week that was until Alby got there first , 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

Week 8 Handmade 2 by zeb2012, on Flickr
Nice shot and interpretation.
Your girlfriend must have a precise hand!
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.
