Peaks People 4

Malc (saltireblue) taking a portrait of a tin can on Curbar Edge. I actually beat him to it, though only by a short head (he's eight inches taller than me, after all Blush).

Thanks for all visits, votes and comments yesterday, all very much appreciated Smile

"It's in the can"......

with all due respect to Malc's photographic skills, it becomes clear that he misses the subject at least by 4 feet if you follow the direction of his lens

I'm sure Malc was able to reveal the full personality of the soft drink can in his portrait, Bill, and you have captured the creative intensity of that moment so well.

Not at all...I was using a 10-24mm so the can was not centered in the composition.Wink

Not at all...the can was empty.Wink

Note to other photographers thinking of using similar objects in their images about the state of the countryside, other proprietary brands of cola are available...

"Coca Cola goes with everything".
Old commercial slogan from Coca Cola which proved right after many years of disbelief...

Two more epz politicians admit to taking coke. Wink

I look forward to seeing both of your efforts uploaded soon.

Coke on the Rocks?
Following the rule of thirds.
One third Coke,
One third Rum,
One third ice.
Then sit somewhere comfortable and enjoy.

Think Malc needs lessons in composing, the camera’s pointing nowhere near the can!! 😁

It looks like it has been a fun filled day on the peaks, if non-alcoholic!

An interesting subject, not one you would expect to be competing over to be fair.
