I have mentioned before that the main reason I bought the G11 was for its close focusing ability of only 1cm in macro mode.
A little example here of the end of a gate latch about 2 inches wide.
amazing detail Mick
I agree, great detail! You know you've got me noticing rust when I'm out and about now!
Very well spotted. this is emerging rust, at a young but promising age.
yes, you have to get close enough. To record important detail like - why is where one bit of blank metal- and to asses different types of rust:
there is the grainy sand type, abit like Chris chin when he saves on razorblades, the apple by type, with big layers peeling of and the slate type ( fine layers.)
Not to forget the different types of rust intruders, like paint
Knew it was yours as soon as I saw thumbnail or should I say nails?
The nails look like headlamps.
Nice one .
Whoever tried to take a screwdriver to that right hand screw missed a few times by the looks - detail at its best Mike ...Bill
Again, belongs in my FACES IN STRANGE PLACES Album-- one shut, one trying to open, superb rust and a wonderful composition!
Had a bit to do with the state department of housing here many years ago, if the screws heads didn't line up they would knock the job back.
Robo cop in need of a service.....the detail is superb Mick
What a macro, Mick. The lens is amazing.
Almost like a set of eyes looking back at yourself...
Very nice work...
Yes, I like the G11 for that reason too. The wonky screw makes it look a bit sozzled.
nothing escapes your eyes Mik and you always seem to get the shot
Great shot Mick.
PS: loved your comment on my vacuum cleaner upload!!
It's winking at us. Or maybe squinting. The site provides a but doesn't provide a squint...
25cm/10 inches approx. on my screen, Mick. I think the G11 is actually an enlarger
Can't hang around to chat this morning. It's p***ing with rain and I have to go out.
You might say I have been galvanised into action, unlike the two screws in this pic that have not been galvanised at all!
Superb image Mick, quite amazing detail, textures and tones.
Pretty impressive focussing, well-caught, Mick.
It picks up detail amazingly well, Mick
Its certainly got impressive close focus ability Mick, so you should be pleased.
Looks like it spent one too many in the pub
Looks like a monster from the deep Mick Great shot.
What an incredible sense of awareness, and such a creative mind, superb image.
Its a good one Mike , and a good camera too I have the G12 which i use at work quite a bit , and have had excellent results. The screw on the left could do with another half turn
Makes me think of 2 drunken eyes peering at me .
Well captured shot. Moira
Like Saturday night all over again..............................A screw n the side.
A little cockeyed I think. Your G11 does a great job of macro. I will have to see how my old G7 does for macro. I've never really been into macro much so that will be interesting to try.............Sandy
Think I'm going to have to take a self-portrait, as with all this rain we've had - and especially on the Camera Club outing yesterday, I've gone a bit rusty! Great close-up, Mick, reminds me of two eyes
Macro rust and gunge at it's best.
looks like two eyes...
'Superb textures, details, color, tones, & Compo' ~ Peter
Now that's close, Mick. And I like how the screws look like eyes who've had a pint too many (like there's any such thing)...
Great use of the G11 Mick. And it looks to me like a pair of Eyes, one of them winking
The title made me smile too so thanks for that mate.
Nice work Mick. Unlike Annette I am unable to make such fine qualitative judgements on rust (she's an engineer for goodness sake and they create the stuff) but I can say that I like it, so much so that I have even found some rusty rocks and photographed them here in Spain!
The detail is excellent Mick - and a well composed shot too.
You've got lots of fine detail in those screws Mick!
like the blue/red combo and 3 textures
What great shot and presentatie ,very well done,
nice screws Mick
A super photo Mike. It looks like half a face. Love it
Well Mick, if you need to get that close to your subjects then it's a darned good job your genre isn't naked females!
Excellent patina in this one.
Well Mick you have really screwed this one down. Fine observation on this crusty ,rusty piece of iron .
Great shot Mick. The slots in those screw-heads do very odd things to my eyes. (and no. it isn't the drink !)
The G11 has done you proud again mate, terrific detail in this one. I bet it also fits in your pocket so you don't have to lug heavy gear around and you can not forget it when you go down the pub!
