Hi Chris, thats a great shot. I love the composition and the various textures, contrasts and differences of materials that are really brought out by the lighting.

Fine b&w and a good composition; just the composition I would have chosen for a similar exercise in my shed which has a vice in the identical position.
Unfortunately I can not see the bench in my shed due to the multiple irregular layers of paint pots, hand tools, old newspaper, motor parts, garden detritus etc etc etc. that have built up over 20 years or so. Just occasionally when I try to turn round to gain access to a box of nails and a hammer I collide with the vice and concuss my rib cage (it's a metal-working not a woodworking vice so projects into the space); then when trying to turn back and head for the door I scrape my other side.
So you have reminded me of what a work bench ought to look like SmileBlush
Regards
Bill

Takes me back to woodwork in my grandfather's shed.
This is about the textures, the grittiness, but also about how the parts work. That's important.

I've thought of taking some photos of John's tools, but our shed does not look as neat as this. I really like this in mono, it brings out textures and is about the shapes. Nicely shot using the diagonals of the bench in the compo Chris.

Malc seems a bit confused over gender.... SmileSmile This is a ready made still life - super in mono with lots of grittiness.
