Challenge: Tacks! II (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Pentax K20D
Lens: Soligor 21/3.8 in T4 mount
Location: washing machine
Date: Apr 15, 2009
Aperture: F/11
ISO: 125
Shutter: 2
Galleries: Studio
Date Uploaded: Apr 15, 2009

This scored better than my first attempt at similar subject (probably because of the copper):
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/945/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_741030.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/945/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_741030.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

For those wondering, this is my washing machine, lit with a torchlight. The lens is unscrewed by two turns (ie 2mm), in order to get a smaller close focus distance.

Don't know how I missed this one when the challenge rolled around. First time seeing it...very cool, almost mysterious in a way.

Nice placement (though I was sure this would ribbon!). This was one of my top favorites from this challenge. Is this the inside of a dryer? Like a clothes dryer? That's what it looks like to me. I could be way off, though.

Congrats on your HM. I was hoping to find out what this is by reading your comments. *sigh*

It's a fabulously-done image.

I should know better than to try and guess. I actually gave you a much higher score than I gave to Irene this on this one.

I'm afraid I have to give this the high vote it deserves, knowing full well that I am probably contributing to another victory for ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' IreneM.

If it were up to me, this would ribbon - Blue or Red. Not sure exactly what this is, but I LOVE the lighting and the creative implementation of the Tacks. Really beautifully executed.

I like the texture - but the tacks don't jump out at me.

stunningly beautiful tack-scape.

Very interesting use of washer/dryer here to give a great affect

Freaky weird and weirdly wonderful. What IS this?? :)

A terrific image, but to this reviewer, the image seems to be much to subtle with respect to the challenge subject. However, it does contain tacks and the tacks, while underdone and understated, enhance the image but more in the respect of adding color and not necessarily detail as they get lost in the background. A technical success, but lacking that same success from an artistic standpoint. In a different challenge, it would be great.

Is this a washing machine or dryer? I like the coppery read against the black and the "natural" way the tacks have found their niches. Probably don't need the letterbox frame.

That is the cleanest dryer drum I've ever seen... Great abstract and lighting. Love the highlights, although the tacks are barely visible. Nice touch with the contrasting color.

Amid all of the humor... thank you for this. Great textures and lighting. Hope to see this at rollover.

Inside of a clothes dryer? I'm guessing this should ribbon. If not, I'd be surprised. The lighting over the smooth dimples with the brass colored tacks looks nice.

Nice use of a dryer? Nice composition.
