An shot of a huge postbox on Leeds's park row.
The photo lacked any real focus till I decided to desaturate all but the significant reds. It's an effect I like, especially as the traffic light was on red too.
I absolutely adore this shot! The red of the traffic light complements the post box so well! The lighting is fantastic, love it! Click,click!
First upload too!? Top debut upload!
Good idea! nice one. =)
Was a bit daunting putting the first one up there - but I'm no longer a virgin on the site!
Have to think of tomorrow's now
Having studied it a bit - I like it a lot - BUT - something is wonky ??
Having studied it further - it's the post box - and why not - it's probably been there 80+- ???? years
very effective shot and manipulation
The red in stop light kind of rounds it off!
Your 1st input ?? - keep going!
A fave of mine for the day.
Great use of desat and love the way both the traffic light and the post box have retained colour.
It actually is that wonkey - must have been hit by a late-running posty once! I think it's pretty old too - it's got "GR" on the side, so that makes it Georgean.
PS - just stumbled on this site tonight whilst looking for Ring Flashes.... amazing what Google brings back sometimes.
It's an excellent idea, think I'll be around for a while.... so long as you're all kind!
Now that's and impressive image.
Great image, the overall result is eye catching and well thought out. I have used this technique myself a few times, and on the right image it can work wonders.
I really like these.work really well.
I would hang this on my wall.
good talking point picture
A great first upload Adrian. I have very unsuccessfully tried these type of shots and am jealous.Keep up the good work.Click
What a super first upload, everything right for me.
Excellent shot, welcome to ephoto.
Excellent first post.. More please.
Nice use of colour. Welcome to the site. Look forward to seeing more.
Great introductory shot Adrian...the red box and light put a fine feature into this predominantly black and white shot. Good work.
first upload and an ec, that's impressive. terrific image,
waiting to see how you follow this one up
Very nice, clever use of selective colour.
Welcome to the site, and what an entrance 'n all. Great image, click (*:*)
Excellent first upload Adrian, good use of selective colour and welcome to ePz.
Congratulations on the EC, just proves what good taste I have, well done
Now thats a way to make an entrance! Well done and congrats on the EC
I particularly loved the traffic light and the overall effect is fantastic
A most impressive photograph. I'm glad you found us, and hope you plan to stay a while and inspire us with more work like this.
Great shot you certainly got off to a good start here.
I'll be looking for this box now when I'm down Park Row ands will probably prang the car. I'll send the bill. click
my congratulations adrian
Long way down to get here, but well worth the journey, excellent shot, well thought out , click from me.
Top work fella!
You should get an editors award for tha......., oh right!!!
Super shot Ade! Regards Steve.
How you resisted the temptation to tweak the red of the post box I don't know(g) I would have myself...I can't resist emphasising the important, striking features of a shot. I'd have lifted the post box and the traffic light too, wouldn't have been able to resist it(g) Great shot...full marks and you landed the coveted EC too..well done
Great shot, love the tweaking. Really stands out, love this type of shot.
Congrats on the EC.
This is a great shot. Sorry I didn't notice it before.
Cool shot indeed.
super shot and sorry i didn't find it sooner-how about straightening up the post box and submitting it again? Or is that too anal?
I really like this one ...I like how the red stands out against the black and white.
In answer to your question on my pic ...yep they are fine about pics being taken in the royal armouries ...no worries.
It works very well...congratulations on the double award
Great piece of selective colouring, works really well on this image..
v good post production work...shaun
Great wonky angle on the post box. An interesting study
Great selective colouring!!! Looks fab - would look great as a big print
I see what you mean by "less is more" it works really well in this image. Well done!
What a wonderfully creative idea. It works so well
There's no real substitute for red is there? Great shot. Nick.
(amazing shot, as if you didnt already know)
It works with subject together.
Smart usage of selective colours
Stunning - JudeC

Pah, an EC with your first upload! I always knew you were a smart-arse.
ROFLMAO - is Ian jealous???
