Challenge: Pattern (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Nikon D70s
Lens: Sigma 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 Aspherical for Nikon (Black)
Location: a datacenter
Date: Dec 23, 2005
Aperture: f/5.0
ISO: 6400
Shutter: 1/25 sec
Galleries: Portraiture, Advertisement
Date Uploaded: Dec 24, 2005

Photo was taken in a datacenter where I work (who shall remain anonymous for now) for my 101 Self Portraits project, and it fit this challenge theme quite well too. Slow shutter speeds made me raise the ISO to 640, and that threw in some grain. The sharpening enhanced the grain a little too.

Really like the "minimalistic" look of this photo. Nicely lined up to draw the viewer straight to you.

i like this. i do think though that if your head was facing straight it might look a bit more meditative. that's just me though. otherwise, nicely done.

I like this - very nice. Would like to see a version without the person and see what that looked like, too.

Alignment is perfect - I'd have cropped to just above the locks - forms nearly a perfect square behind the subject which looks kinda cool.

This is very artistic .. 9

such a clean, cool shot - great perspective and symmetry. .....what could have made this absolutely perfect was a small adjustment in composition to eliminate the tles lines in the fg so close to the frame

Great clarity and graphic quality. I like this very much. Looks like something you'd see in an advertisement! Well done. (love the title too)

You know, I think this might have been more effective with a different subject at the end of the hallway. Not sure WHAT, but the guy is distracting to me.

This made me smile. Silly, but great pattern and concept.

Very cool. Are those lockers or servers? This kind of looks like a computer server room. Great capture. 9
