Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Metal (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Nikon D70
Location: Eindhoven (hospital), The Netherlands
Date: Jun 16, 2005
Aperture: 3.2

Galleries: Abstract, Science and Technology
Date Uploaded: Jun 16, 2005

Taken with Canon SD200 at work, in the technical
room (Hospital) where they produce heat.

I called it "Cold Metal", because the word metal
gives me always a cold feeling.

Technical info:
Adjusted with Photoshop -> light cropping, shadow/highlight, contrast, noise filtering, unsharp mask en color tone/saturation.

Kind regards, Andrew

So is it taken with the D70 or the SD200????? Your comment in the "photographer's comments" contradicts the photograph information.

This looks so nice! Beautiful presentation ... just beautiful! I like the industrialized centering. Some who blindly believe centering is ALWAYS bad might chime in here. But I feel a picture crops itself by its elements. You alowed all components an equal voice here, as should have been. 9.

Superb shot, the blue cast works really well for me. Good eye and nice composition, good job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

we all know its a "metal" challenge, why not just say "Cold", it gives it a seperate perspective, and makes the titleing much stronger.

Nice comp, great lighting, b&w's good, great lines, great balance, blue filter works, overall very nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/22/2005 06:11:30 PM
Wow. Very shiny. :) The textures in this image work well. The smooth against the mottled background is great! The balance in this composition is excellent - good crop. Focus, DOf, POV all well done. 9 - good luck in the challenge!
