Rust never sleeps 2

By mrswoolybill
Brenzett WWII Museum.
When I uploaded the original full frame a while ago there were a number of suggestions for variations crops, flips, rotations. This was one of the results.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

The play between in and out of focus areas is fantastic here Moira. - gary

The use of differential focussing works really well in this fine composition.

Reminds me of the wheels in my head which are not running at the mo, some say never have but I could not comment on that one, nice rust colours that will keep Mick happy, nice to see the web, good DOF. Good shot Moira.

Quote:The play between in and out of focus areas...

That's what appeals to me, Gary. Thanks folks. What people haven't picked up on is that I've flipped this so that it's pointing right not left, forwards to the future, not backwards to the past. It does create a different mood for me, but I know I get obsessive over the left/right thing.

I was going to be a bit mischievious here and suggest you rotate, flip, crop or otherwise alter this, but that might be trying your patience after last time you presented this subject.

Anyway, this is just right, one of those really perfect subjects so very well spotted and captured.

Not sure about the past/future analogy but it looks more balanced pointing this way, as does the arrangement of the cogs. I like balance, very ch'i Tongue

Moira


in most cases left and right are equivalent, and it is impossible to detect whether a picture has been flipped or not....
I share your same obsession about the left/right thing

I even had it pointing upwards last time!

I like balance too. I am a Libran, therefore of course I am perfectly balanced. Tongue Tongue

I wonder why one bit is green.
I have no particular view regarding the left/right thing, but this looks "correct". Smile

Moss/mould/gunge growing on rust. It's a potent mix!

As close to what we see with our own eyes, the shallow focus is as near dammit human, your a nice witch Moira with this cunning example of getting your own way while appeasing the masses.

The little cobwebs tickle the eye.
I also have a thing about the psychological impact of right/left images and how they change the feeling of a photo.

If one could call rust yummy it would be in this instance! Very tactile, nicely detailied - colour is superb - love the green bits and that web attached to the front cog, and the selective focus is spot on.

Oh thank you Dougie, that's a lovely compliment. I think...
I like the idea of yummy rust, by the way. And tickling the eyes.
Thanks everyone, Moira

I've been looking through your 'Rust' series, i quite like them, even though they are a reminder of yet another lost industry or factory closure.
At least someone is making a photographic record of industrial machinery, to pass on to the younger generation, thank you.
I took some photos of a similar nature a few years ago, perhaps i may take some more before the scrap man comes along.
I notice you use a Nikon D90. What's your opinion of it from a users point of view?
The photo quality speaks for itself.
Regards Justwilliam
