Thank you so much, SLR... I enjoy much of your work as well!
Just enjoying finding out who they all belong to. Awwww... you have a certain quality to your shots that I might be catching on to. I like this Talegi... as I do most of yours.
Something about this photo I really like. Can't put my fingure on it though lol. Have you tried it in black and white? I think with the different metals, it would pick up some great contrast.
Thank you, Cali... sorry about the A.D.D.! :D
Ohh my. The A.D.D. is kicking in...JK. Good idea. Most people would walk right by a pilo o' parts. += A good eye. -= A little extra saturation would make some of the colors pop out. Just a smidge. Likin' it alot though Thumbs up!!
Thanks, cadiskid and hatterasjack... LOL on the water pump sighting!
Cool shot, only problem... the waterpump don't belong in da pile.LOL
Like the colours and concept+1
Thank you, SLR! Two different photo series were born at this salvage yard. I have yet to find another yard that sorts and piles similar items like this one did... There was this pile of alternators and motors, a pile of fans and motors topped with a quad runner and an old three wheel ATV, a pile of steam radiators, a pile of motorcycles, and some stacked buses. I absolutely loved the colors these added to the yard on this overcast November day, while also perfectly illustrating the rusty chaos found in most boneyards. My other series was old, rusted out station wagons that, to me, epitomized the end of the family road trip.
Fun photo. I'm with UA and can spend time looking around, wondering what that or this was from. Nice job.
Thank you very much for your thoughts, Stephanie! I think the overexposure is due to my darkening the photo, as most of my entries appear underexposed when I post them here. Since we will now have a week out to shoot and tweak before photos are due, I'm hoping I can compensate for this phenomenon in the camera instead of with software. Time will tell, and I appreciate your observations either way!
Great capture! I love the texture and chaotic nature of the shapes. The lower left hand corner seems a little overexposed. It makes it feel a little more muddy than the upper right corner.
Thanks to both of you for your comments. Unusualangles, I'm glad you enjoyed it and stayed a bit... I see something new every time I look at it! Suz, I actually shot this with a puzzle in mind, lol! While living in the NE, I sent a dozen submissions to a local company, but they showed no interest. Being a BIG fan of Springbok "collection" puzzles, I still can't pass up such a photographic opportunity.
This is an absolutely perfect photo for a jigsaw puzzle. Pursue that idea....make some money off of it.
At first I was thinking. This is free for all, Can this be your BEST shot ever? Then I started looking at all the colors, textures, shapes and sizes. I could spend forever looking at this. And as photographers that is exactly what we want to do, make someone look at our photos. Job accomplished Submitter!
