Dangerous Liaison

By chase
I loved photographing this beautiful cog, the Moth just liked the light Wink

Hope you are not toooo fed up with these, I did have a good session.

Lit by one handheld LED light camera left and high, good job I have a nice long release cable on the camera as I have quite short arms Wink

An HDR image, 3 frames, 1 stop apart. Raw files combined in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop, sorry, I couldn't resist the Moth Blush I think the oil can is just about to shoot it, judging by the angle he is flying in at !
I thought the old red oil can just added that little dash of colour.

Thanks for keeping up with me.

Constructive critique and mods welcome.
Stay cool, stay safe and smile Smile

I like this, as the others, especially the photo-bombing moth! But I found the right side a little too dark.
I've tried to lighten the right side a bit to bring out the shape of the oil can, using a control point in Photolab3
Ignore my first mod which was the wrong upload!

I love that you centred the saw blade in the cog aperture. Your'e normal attention to detail!
Great image Janet.

I wonder if the moth wishes to confess anything?

You make me want to go out to my husbands shed. Love your little moth checking things out. The oil can is going to shoot him with oil.

Thanks all.
Thank you for the mod James, a little more light, a different way of looking at something.

Good set up Janet - slight light adj on mod - lifted the moth a little and brought a little more of of the oilcan handle out of the dark.
