Beautifully caught, the point (no pun intended!) of focus is spot on! Smile

I wonder if rotating it 90deg anti-clockwise would give an improved look - well worth experimenting with different crops/rotations. Smile

hi Olly,

Sharp shot to the point. It showss good use of camera. I was going to suggest you to make it look verically but then I thought , since this corkboard is normally seen hanging the normal position of the pin would look like you shot it.

But then again a picture is a representation of reality so I would suggest you seeing it turned 90 degrees to the left.
And then , as the shadow comes closer to you, you can realise that although strange, it looks, ermmmm, better (?)
Take another road. Convert it in black and white, it's just a replresentation, does it matter to the pin? No. look what you get out of it.

I am not new to photography, a short while ago I was watching a youtube clip about composition. It tells the basic, which I shall let you find out yourself, but while concluding it said, if you want to have nice pictures stand in front of beautiful subjects. Give that a thought.

I forgot to say I like the way you translated a phrase (or a concept) to a picture. Keep up the good work.

this works for me - angles....well perhaps but you would have to try rotating....this would also probably work well in mono and some added contrast would accentuet the shadow. Smile
