About the Image(s)

Trying new stuff! I attended a workshop in November that took place at a junkyard. There were a lot of old cars and airplanes. Very cool. This is a shot I took of a delivery truck. I was outside of the back of the truck and taking a picture through the space of the interior front. I also shot this with a camera I never use, my Panasonic DMC-GF6. It is a mirrorless camera. Focal length was 14mm, f/4, 1/160.

I would love your feedback.

The imagination is a great thing to challange mind from time to time. You have made me think out of the box and that is good.
So I am going to wrap my comments into the old tried and true with some off the wall thoughts. No distractions, shadows in the shipping compartment has just the right amount of shadow to let the viewer know the content but not take away from the drivers cab. Details are good and no unnecessary distractions.

Maybe the van was an abandoned FBI stake out truck minus the electronics, cameras. Or it was a prison van used to move convicts from point A to point B. ....   Posted: 01/06/2022 18:53:21

Very interesting nice sharp image of the truck the rivets make an interesting subject by themselves The window acts like a frame for what is inside   Posted: 01/11/2022 17:10:42

Very interesting Jessica. I was particularly struck by the symmetry of this photo. The symmetry could be improved somewhat by following through with Judy's observation: square up the frame made by the outside of the panel to make a more symmetric frame in keeping with the symmetry of what lies within it.   Posted: 01/12/2022 13:59:41

This is an interesting image. I agree with Jody, that I would like to see the rivets the same on both sides. While I like the blue tones, I also tried it in bw. Also, I cropped some off the top and bottom, using a brush in LR, adjusted some of the light/ dark areas inside the window. Finally I reduced the exposure on the outside portion. Reducing the exposure brought out some texture as well which you may or may not like. Just a different take on a very interesting subject.   Posted: 01/18/2022 19:10:15
