First off A big thanks to Pete for the HC on the last image and to Chris & Janet for the UA's really much appreciated.
I was going to upload this tomorrow to sign off 2010, however I realised it would get even less views then.
Its a rework of an earlier image, tho this time in mono my way of saying good ridance 2010 - bring on the New Year. Anyway hope you all have a good 'un hope to see many of you next year.
Stunning work. Must look at the rest of your PF...
You are looking even more stern, in this Nick, good tones and textures and of course mono work.
All the best for 2011.
Great piece of work. I, too, can't wait to see the back of 2010.
Excellent ! and interesting! Good to see quality thinking!
So in the wasted talent thread running currently I get criticised for giving awards to mono versions of colour pics...and here's another!
All the critique does is makes it more agonising over choosing the pics as I have all these extra thoughts buzzing around in my head, but I will not stop awarding pics because people don't like how I do it. And this is one such example. You're not a friend and we've never met, you're not on an special favourites list, I've not received cash from you - you've just posted what I feel is an excellent photo, and one that's been posted before in colour that got a HC. Keep them coming. Have a good New Year
What do I like about it. Well textures is something I like if used well. Collages I like if blended well. My love of Dali makes clocks "box ticking" objects to include. And high quality processing, especially when it comes to black & white which have to work harder. That, along side balance, of composition and sharpness (where necessary) make this shot achieve the award.
Well where do I start, thanks to Wolfy for the Guest editors award.
Pete - a massive thanks, this to me means the most in terms of the awards as it took heart & soul to put it together - and not just learning new skills.
The comment on Dali made me smile - I've been a big fan of Dali's work, and have a very large print hanging in the living room at home - its probably where the inspiration came for the watch.
I've been following the forum thread with interest, and yes this is a Black and White version of a HC earlier in the year, but there is a but it is a different layout, one of the reasons why I uploaded a mono, the other been anyone that has seen my "conventional" work will know my main passion is Black and White, so I felt it tied in better - for me and what I was trying to portray.
It also goes to show what is excellent about EPZ, and your peers who you look upto, I was helped immensly in this project by 4 people in particular, both in putting together the original and in their excellent constructive critisism of the original.
So thank you again and have a great New Year and I hope EPZ continues to go from strength to strength, which I'm sure it will.
A good rework Nick,I prefer this version without the apple so bold in the frameTBH as the silhouette is much more convincing & obvious here.
Well done !
have a great 2011
Well done on the EC.
Fair play Nick, you took on the info given about the original upload and in your own classic mono style produce a stunning rework.
Congrats on the EC and all the best for 2011, oh and have my UA.
The background is a lot more subtle in this rework Nick .... the individual elements are more harmonious. Suits the contrasty BW conversion too .... much more impact, especially the face. Congrats on the EC. Got to agree with you that this has been a bitch of a year though, so roll on 2011 and better luck all round.
Thanks Janet, William, Richard, Dave & Les.
Big thanks for the UA Les and yes Dave lets hope for a better 2011, and most of all thanks for your support - the original Critique helped me a lot, and I would be mad not to listen to the Master in terms of DM. Have a great year too.
Superb Nick. Didn't realise that you'd reposted this. Nice reworking of the collage and a cheeky silhouette to boot. Classy blending job...I just wouldn't know where to start with this so hats off to you.
Brilliant piece of work, Nick, top quality.
Said the apple should go
Its a great cut mate , happy new processing Nick.
The apples still there Dave only bigger, and yes more subtle
Thanks again for your help, have a great New Year and hope the hangovers not too severe
Hope you have a great new year Nick and best wishes for the year ahead.
A much better harmony of all the elements for me Nick, mono suits it well too. A very open and honest piece and one that deserves the awards IMO.
All the best for 2011 mate - hopefully it can only get better than this year.
Thanks Andy & Paul - I'm sure it will Paul hope all's well too with you, hopefully we can meet up some time next year.
It's on the money for me Nick, well deserved award.
Nick, your mono work is something I aspire to and this is an exceptional example which is worthy of the awards. Congratulations and all the best for 2011.
Thanks Darren it means a lot.
First class work and well rewarded. Well done to Pete too for flying into the face of all the criticism. Have a good 2011... Dave
Thanks everyone I'm overwhelmed with the comments.
Have a great 2011 everyone.
I promise my next upload will be more conventional
just looked at the coloour version, for me it works so much better in mono. cracking tones and detail. congrats on the EC.lesley
Wonderful work! Thanks for share.
Happy New Year to You and Yours.
Just catching up Nick. Congrats on all of your awards lately, richly deserved. Love what you have done to this, I for one would not have the vision or the talent to produce this.
Hope 2011 is a better one for you.
Hard to pass by this image which is so strikingly different. Have a great year! Very well done!
