I must agree Mick, the right hand ring does look boring. - gary

The LHS ring certainly does have "character" compared to the RHS ring Mike - maybe a recycled teething ring ? - fine shot ...Bill

Another three and your home and dry for gold, Mick: that newish untarnished ring does lack character.

A good contrast between the two rings against some super texture ~ and of course rings are in at the moment.

You are so right Mick, but there again I would not dare to argue with youWinkWink Love the contrasting rings, especially that nice clean one! A very good shot Mick with superb clarity and detail, you can even see the paler ring shapes on the ground where they have 'rested'.
28 Jul 2012 7:56AM
I agree Mick, much prefer the model on the left,

I don't hold with this five-rings lark, Mick.
Ultimately the ring that matters is the ring on the doorbell from the men in white coats Smile
I do rather like your composition, the cracked paving and the algae and the one-with-one-without set-up. A Stevie Wonder for our times?????!!!!!

Bill

P.S.: In view of the severe admonishment administered last week I thought I ought to warn you that I had planned to post another picture from Fairfield Church in Kent next Friday that includes three of those white fluffies whose identity we disputed recently. Since I took the photo before you drew my attention to the small print of paragraph 3b of Rule 1 (of which I did not have a copy, as previously explained) I hope my action might be sanctioned so long as I promise not to do it again . . .

Love that. I was thinking of the ghost of rust past. In any case a pale, wasted shadow of the Real Thing.

A fine example of how dull things are without a little creative ageing and decay. It applies to people too!

A stunning example of awareness, the image could be a metaphor for many of life's little observations.

Yes, I'm with Lynne on this however, I seem to only be getting the 'ageing and decay' without the creative bit!Sad

Lovely shot Mick

Someone commented on one of my recent rusty uploads as to what was the appeal of it - we'll, this answers the question! The ring on the left wins hands down! Wink

Must agree with you Mick, good comparison.
Like the way you've put the rings on a diagonal, adds a little more to the shot.

Aye...you do have a point, Mick. I find it easier and more rewarding to photograph older roses than fresh roses.

Although I bet Olympians would rather grab on to Roman rings like the one on the right Wink

I'm sure the ring on the right will resemble the ring on the left when you go back again in a year or two. A good contrast between old and new
29 Jul 2012 5:28AM
now we have the proof
29 Jul 2012 11:21AM
Mick, like your idea here, great contrast between new and old........I like the old, some things are just ment to be.

The one on the right is far superior and adds a great deal to the image whilst the rusty one does need to be cleaned up a bit. That floor is a bit dirty and cracked. You could so easily rectify this is ps6 or some other editing suite..... Go on ..you know you want to.
30 Jul 2012 8:56AM
YUP!! You are right .... the rust is much more interesting
