Anchors Away by Bob Legg

About the Image(s)

Anchor is in a park in Portsmouth NH. Cloudless day, so needed to do a little more in post. I didn’t like it with a full white histogram. Anchor had a healthy coat of rust. I shot it handheld iso800, 200mm,f11,and 1/2000 sec and converted in Lightroom.

This round’s discussion is now closed!

Did you have an original, curious about if you cropped the shot or not?

Wonderful texture created by the rust.

Looks like the anchor will outlast the planet

Bob, I not only like the texture, but I also find the shapes wonderful. Also, you handled the background beautifully. It lets the anchor immediately grab the viewer's attention. Well done!

Hello Bob,

Your photo has an emotive quality; I like how the steel anchor is hanging; I see it as something unique. Because I don't have the opportunity to see anchors where I live in the dairy and corn belt of the country, I see an expression of humanity in the wild, wild west world we live in today.

Thanks for sharing!

Hi LuAnn. I'll send you the non-hanging hanger as edited by Emil.

Hi Bob,

Cool texture, the background is perfectly blurred, the shapes are interesting.
You're great.

bob, I love the detail and texture. From a compositional standpoint my eye keeps looking for something to balance out the subject. Possibly more space to the upper right. But then, I wouldn't know if that was good without seeing it. Mark
