Fisherman's Palette

By ade_mcfade      
A wierd palette thing painted turquoise, stuck on stilts and planted in the edge of the water at Fairburn for fishermen to use, under a pylon?

Are the developers trying to get rid of anglers?

this is t'other side of the road to the last shot of the ings - a bit brighter, this was facing south - a little colour in the sky in that direction

Part 2 of this is a shot I really like, think it powerful but isnt' really EPZ friendly, but take a look at Yorkshire's 3 Graces Smile

that turquise is a great lead into the image, this just improves big time in the large version

number two has an abstract and surreal feel. Like both.

No. 2 deserves a place of its own on here - it's fantastic!

Looks like world war three, the second shot!

Excellent colours and comp in 1.

Glad to be r/c Ade. Fishing with a carbon rod could be troublesome. Ron.

Both wonderful images. Both very different but both beautifully composed and good choices on colour and mono

#2 is quite impressive. We have one refinery where on the coldest day of the year it will get like this, but 3 is much more dramatic. #1 has some great colour going for it and I rarely see clouds or skies like this where I live.

Cheers Patrick, but there's only 2 images there...

Quote:Part 2 of this is a shot I really like, think it powerful but isnt' really EPZ friendly you decided to hide it behind a shot with nice colours that would be more 'popular?'

No. 2 is leauges ahead of no.1 as a photograph. The click's for no.2...

Been here a while, know the score on the site bud - but you're right, I prefer number 2 by a long way

I'll upload it now then - in glorious PANO Smile

Lets see if the masses like it!
18 Apr 2008 12:07PM
Been here a while too - longer than you, in fact Wink
Don't be fooled by the 'new member' tag...

Sorry if it sounded a bit harsh, just the choice of no. 1 & no. 2 seemed a bit cynical to me.

not at all "mystery Steve" Smile

I agree, but to get the audience, you've got to play to it some times!

Going to post the better shot now Wink

could it be that ADE and PICSMITH are one and the same, the light and darkside of the same person.

Cheers Pete - you're as unpredictable as ever, which is why I like EC's so much Smile

Had this pinned for an EC from the moment I clicked it. Had it shortlisted for my award and having reviewed the others in there have to say this is best.

Stands out a mile from the thumba dn doesn't let you down when opened large.

Cheers Dan - I think the turquoise plays a huge factor, and with there being very little ambient light there, the colours were really strong.

I think 8/10 togs would have gone home long before I took this a there was no "perfect light" that people crave Smile

Totally correct .. the turquoise does make it work for me .. that and its subtle message ... the simple comp just finishes it off.

Ah... I meant the three 'graces!' Three of them are much more dramatic then one.

How come you see a brilliant shot out of something so blooming ordinary a pylon and a pallette Smile
Like the shadow/reflection of the palette and as for v2 it is just amazing.

its a great shot, nicely composed, wonderful crisp details and colour, dont think I'd fancy fishing from there, looks a little unsteady.
