Love the deep shadows and deep red along with the subject matter. This is on point!

Which way is is going to rotate? Imagining that makes so much difference to the mood.
At our U3A Photography group meeting the other day, discussing left/right movement, one member mentioned that very young children draw circles anti-clockwise, after a year or so at school they draw them clockwise. I'm seeing that tension in arcs everywhere now.
I really should get a life.
Excellent, by the way.

Much bolder than yesterday's and less dark, but maybe just as mysterious.
Re: Leica lens: I think it's a combination of the rounded surface of the moulding (focus on the eye) and f1.4.
I seem to remember that Leica lenses were reckoned to be less crisp than Zeiss but more characterful. I'll drink to that!

There's a kind of creaminess to the look of Leica images, I think. Pass the bottle.

Now, that's a bit special Alan. The light is just magical. I don't know why, but an 80's album cover comes to mind, with the two-tone background and the big, bold splash of colour... I know...I'm crackers! I love industrial abstracts and this is defiantly a thing of beauty.

Never been a fan of rust, but can live with it in this shot because as Charlotte says.... "That's a bit special". I'm beginning to like these industrial abstracts too.. saw some of a 1930's lorry recently and they work very well...nice one matey

No, I'm no great rust-head either, mate. This was all about light and dark, texture and RED, for me.SmileSmile

Visionary imagery...

Interesting comparison with previous image. Illustrates brilliantly how we can see one place in such different ways.
What do I like about this piece? The strong red against the background, the subtle green on the wheel, the corner with the slightly paler tone at the edge of the frame, the position of the wheel, texture of the background, thin highlight on edge of wheel, I could go on !!
Still slightly sinister but only because I can't separate it from Wednesday's black and white image.

Great lighting, lovely simple image which works so well.

Yes, though sometimes, achieving simplicity is not quite so simple as some might think.

Thanks, Mary.Smile

My eyes are drawn to that peeled area of this handle, is it a handle?
It is great that the areas above the diagonal and below are not equal, because that is what allows this image to have movement.
Great light and color, but this picture is done by composition.

No Marian, it's the pulley-wheel shown in Wednesday's image "generator"
