I saw something I liked in a hinge that had been attacked by the elements. It was located at a Marina, which parts of it had been neglected, while other parts have been "up dated". Not sure if I have done the image I had I mind justice, or come anywhere close, as it is the first venture into this type of image.

Thats the most popular name for hinges uploaded on EPZ!


Nice colours and textures. It can look better with added contrast and sharpening, and I would crop the image off centre a little. The aim is to be able to feel the rust!


Mod loaded.

Good one. Rust and detail are interesting subjects and make good photos.
Willie's mod certainly brings out more of what you probably intended. The other I really like and shows what can be achieved with soft ware.
Consider the light. Look for light from the side especially warm morning or evening light which can add a lot to the colour of the rust. Also side lighting helps profile the pocked and uneven surface.
Side lighting could also be an off camera flash, window light or a lamp indoors.
As regards the composition try the have the main event/subject placed to one side on a third. As Willie's mod a bit to one side. This tends to look more interesting unless you just need a technical record shot.
regards
Ian
