Re: Two Large Cogs


I would say that this is one of your best still life images. The lighting and tones are beautiful and the cogs on those [sign in to see URL] you can almost touch them. Good one Ian.

Re: Two Large Cogs


I am sorry, Ian, but I just do not see the objective of this image. There must be more to it than 2 pieces of metal, steel I presume, lying one on top of the other and placed on a table. As an example of lighting and tones it is very good indeed but why?

Re: Two Large Cogs


Perhaps I am not expressing myself very well, Ian. I have just looked back at the last 6 or so still life images that you have posted and they meant something to me, this image does not. You look back and I am sure you had a reason for those images other than the one you have just given.

I think in this case it was more about the light than the actual object(s).

Very beautifully rendered, whatever the opinion may be on the subject.

Re: Two Large Cogs


Fot what its worth .......

......I got my head (for me) round 'still life' some time ago and I see it as:

Photography where the photographer has total control of

Light - direction, intensity etc

(Inanimate) Object being photographed

Camera angle and direction relative to object

Etc

So there are no excuses if (eg) a shadow etc is too harsh.

And the objective (for me) is to produce an image that is pleasing to the photographer.

It looks as though I am outnumbered so I'll crawl into my corner and await my turn.
