Old trainers hanging on the back of a dusty old door. The door had previously served as flooring in my loft, and I had saved it with a picture like this in mind.
Converted to B&W and applied a platinum tone.
Tripod, manual focus, mirror lockup, 1/2 sec at f/11.
nice composition - my work monitor is a bit dull so not sure if contrast is spot on but is certainly very nice
Wonderful detail and tonal range. I guess you can write your own story around this interesting composition!
Interesting still life. And the toning works well.
Creative still life, platinum tone works well. Never easy still life, a subject I have trouble with John. Ron.
Well thought out... for me it works well.
Thanks for the comments.
Mark - I didn't want to increase the contrast any further for fear of burning out the brightest parts of the shoe or losing the grubbiness. However, if people think that it would be better with higher contrast then please speak up.
I like it
Simple but effective.
Like the range of tones in this but personally might have tweaked the contrast ever so slightly on the trainers and darkened down the BG a touch. Some how the trainers just look a little too clean and new in comparison to the door.
good study work.....
