A stunning image compositionally, whilst at the same time the gorgeous textures and tones demand ones immediate attention.

Its the play between in and out of focus areas that make it. - gary

Well used luggage, Moira, but no doubt still has plenty of use in it yet. An excellent composition, focusing is perfect. Carol

Thanks Gary, that's precisely what I intended - and concentrating on in and out of focus curves.
Thanks everyone,

Super focus, colour and texture, Moira.

Curves, and diagonals all fitted into a strong square crop. Focus on that front suitcase gives us a focal point, while the oof areas give some softness to the image. It doesn't all have to be in focus in a still life - I find this approach can be more pleasing to the eye.

Good play on words in the title.

As said aboe, good use of depth of field to draw the eye to the central area and all those super tones and textures Smile

Many thanks everyone, and particularly to Meheecho for his UA. The b&w version follows tomorrow, it's much darker.

Days gone by, lovely.

I love the composition and textures in this shot!

It's all been said in abundance ( you have to be quick's hard to find another superlative when you're on the bottom of the list!).
I think I might have been standing feet away when it was taken, but didn't see it. Too blinded by the red buckets ? Nice one Moira Smile

Warm textures conjuring up images of old films such as 'Brief Encounter' and 'Murder on the Orient Express'. Fabulous.

rusty, crusty, beautiful - as I am commenting backward I have to admit... you guess... I love the colour version more.

excellent rust and textures. I can see how you will find even more angles and dangles to post in there.

Somehow missed this full color version. Both this and the subsequent B&W are wonderful shots.

So that's where I left my luggage, Beamish Railway Station, County Durham.
I'll have to make a trunk call to the Station Master and ask him to save them for me until I return...

You've handled this close up study really well Moira, in fact so much so that you've made a strong case for receiving a site awardSmile
