To Hand

By Sezz    
Taken at the Chatham Festival Of Steam on Easter Monday - lots to see and take images of, including 'Steam Punk Morris Dancers'. However I was disappointed with what I came home with, seem to be in the 'Doldrums' with my photography at the moment. Anyway as usual it was the close-up details that drew my attention and I quite liked this one..

Thanks as always for your time, your thoughts/comments are very welcome.
Regards - Sarah J x

I like the shape and composition, but the skin looks a bit red (maybe that is his natural colour). Lovely textures and you can almost smell the leather Smile

Thanks Dave.. yeah a bit red, I did another version where I toned down the hand colour but it looked a bit washed out, somewhere inbetween I think would be better - thanks for your comment Smile

Has your trademark attention to detail Sarah- fine observation with beautiful light and strong compositional elements...

Trust the photographic doldrums don't last...

All the best,

I love your 'little details' shots, Sarah and this is great. The shine on the outer edge relly gives it life.

V2 for me Sarah with the toned down pinks, unless the man has high blood pressure?

Well observed and captured, Sarah. Lovely detail too.

Glad you decided to re-upload this image. I was halfway through commenting on it when you removed it first time round!

I think it's par for the course to hit the Doldrums every now and again- I can sympathise with you. I currently barely pick up the camera. Motivation has up and gone , probably not helped by the weather ofl late . I'm sure when Spring finally arrives and we are not in temperatures that feel like 0 and below, my enthusiasm will return.
Despite feeling in the Doldrums photographically speaking, your observational skills have certainly not deserted you. It's all in the detail.

Thank you everyone, always appreciated!

Chant, yes I think that you are right re the weather, hasn't helped being such a long winter! Hopefully warmer days and lighter evenings will indeed return and along with them our enthusiasm too! I appreciate your kind comment re the image, thank you Smile
