Wonderful textures in that curly ironwork, Moira, and great shadows as the background. Carol

SmileSmileSmile. Great minds. Had to smile at your use of camera terminology in the title.

Have you used mono to disguise the rust and concentrate on the shapes and shadows? Smile Mick will be upset if you have. I do like your use of the corner metal as a frame.

This is lovely, the mimicked shadow concealed within the bokeh of the image.
Superb.

Beamish is indeed a photographers playroom. A beautifully observed curvaceous textured form which for me works quite superbly in monochrome.

Beautiful MONO, Moira.Wonderfully framed image.. I always like the old metal work, the craft man's work is beautiful..they are everywhere,but we don't 'see' them much.
BTW, thank you for the comments on the 'dummies' .Smile

Thanks to everyone who has called in here while we were out this morning, and particularly to people who have noticed the background shadows, the framing and the title. (I was rather pleased with all three... )

Well not necessarily the former but certainly the latter.
I will admit to a certain amount of trickery to get that right angle top left. I thought it was worth it.

Square crop works beautifully, with very good use of partial framing on the top and left hand side. Excellent tones, textures and bokeh, repeating spiral shapes and the background spirals echoing the shape of the in focus wrought iron.

The depth in this is not immediate apparent, Moira. I have re-visited several times and see something new each time. I have deliberately refrained from reading the comments until I self have posted (as I often do), and see that I have discovered what some others have, namely the mimicked effect in the background, which at first take are overshadowed (no pun) by the eye automatically concentrating on the wrought iron in the fg.
(I remember making these curvy forms in 3rd year metalwork)

An image more intricate than seen at first glance.
