About the Image(s)

Sony A550 “ Minolta 17-35 2.8 17mm ISO200 15 seconds F14

Converted to monochrome in Silver Efex Pro and some gentle adjustment in PS by removing a horrible eyesore on the left.

Whilst wondering around a large house where photography was not allowed, I found a nice box and my car keys to rest the camera and with no one around on 10 second timer got this shot. Quite pleased with it. Don’t tell the owners.

Subjects which cry to be in B&W.
I appreciate the gradient of light (from left to right).
A place with a story that has to be fixed on a picture. Fast & wel done.   Posted: 08/02/2022 03:50:40

Paul, I think you have composed this well, for a pre-set still life. The composition works and by getting rid of an annoyance you allow the eye to be led to where you want it with the greatest contrast of light and dark around the basket with the bunch of grass pointing toward it. There are good leading lines from the supports on the shelf to the upright on the scooter. Lots of lovely repetition of the wooden boards. I find this well exposed and with good details. I think a slight more dark under the bright basket may ground it better. By which I mean make it to seem less like it floats on the floor. Well done.   Posted: 08/02/2022 18:21:34
