November Photo Comp. -- 'All in the Detail'

Discussion in 'photography, graphics & art' started by mauvais, Nov 4, 2005.

  1. blackadder

    blackadder I knew a girl named Nikki

    Well, I'm voting for the pics I interpurt to be on topic, all the macro shots didn't fit the objective in my opinion, so here goes!

    Number1. Supermarket spikes

    alef. Because I have never noticed these pidgeon spikes before, one has to look closely to see them, which fits the theme perfectly.

    Number2 Listening In

    mauvais mangue Because of the ring around the leg, one would have to look closley to differenciate a wild bird, to a tracked bird.

    Number3 Valve Springs

    exosculate Because, one would have to take close attention to a cooled light bulb, to actualy see how much work goes into making them.

    Good luck all.
  2. Hocus Eye.

    Hocus Eye. Snap, crop, scrap crap R.I.P.

    My choices are:

    Felicia - Moist and Glowing - Bernie Gunther

    Listening in -Mauvais Manque

    Busy Bee - wiskey

    It is getting progressively harder to judge the contest; the pictures all all of a high standard and the number of entries is so large these days. That is of course a good thing.

    There were many other pictures that were as good as these and perhaps better composed or had more atmospheric colour but did not exemplify 'detail'. I think the test is: could someone guess the set title from looking at the picture?

    I'm a bit confused by some of the more wonderful photos as to whether they're photos of other artist's paintings

    can anyone please clarify which photos are shots of paintings or other works of art not created by the photographer?

    ta :)

    I was more asking about firky's photos

    they're incredible but I wasn't sure if they were his own art, someone else's art or just stuff he photorgaphed

    nah they're my photos of just stuff you find on the ground, nothing setup. just walking around looking for the interesting.

    one was just an old chimney with weeds growing on it. the other was smashed car windscreen at portsmouth harbour, and the final one is spilt paint in a builder's yard.

    thankyou for the nice words! :)

    1) Berryberry - franklin1777
    2) 2- Lamp - marts69
    3) PICTURE TWO - 5T3R30TYP3

    PICTURE TWO - 5T3R30TYP3 Vs Beetle - Crispy on 3rd.
    When with 5T3R30TYP3 as it got a kind of softness to the image.
  17. Firky

    Firky The first of the gang Banned

    1] 5T3R30TYP3 - Picture One

    Like I said earlier, this one is thooper! Looks dreamlike and hazy, like the way the sun is shinging through the leaves and the washed out colours. I also like the subject, what appears to be a meadow on the fridges of a town. My favourite part along with the grass is the street light you can just make out, like the tree 'tis standing on its own. Everything feels empty about it, as if it is not in use. Sorta like a ghost town. Probably reading far too much into this pic.

    2] dyslexic1 - Unamed as yet!

    Worm casts, casting shadows... thought that was a clever idea. Plenty of texture, and I like the way the the worm casts seem to gather momentum towards the top right of the picture, and the angle it is shot at.

    3] thedyslexic1 - Goblin

    This one made me smile! That is why I like it, the photo is a bit too orange on my monitor, and I hate wood panneling (so seventies :D ) but I think this is one of the few pics in all the thumbnails which is *really* in the detail. How many people would of noticed that, I wonder?

    Other mentions, NOT VOTES!

    Paul Russel - Relegious pic.

    Same with 'The Goblin', I think this is one of the few that captures the topic. Your candid shots are bladdy ace, makes me wonder if you're MI5, a stalker, and quick on the draw... or just patient ;)

    Chriswill - Odd Man Out

    BRIGHT!!! I like all the different poses and body language going on, and the odd one out seems pissed off! Good observation.

    exosculate - Snakes and Ladders

    I nearly voted for this one but didn't because it looks setup (is it?), nice shot all the same!

    deep_thought - robot cat selling

    Class, but I don't think it fits in with the theme, it is a very surreal thing to witness, and the backdrop, the bloke's clothes and what he is doing make it a class photo. Where was it taken? Eastern Europe somewhere?

    what - blackburn road

    Nice simple clean lines and contrast. Just the way I like it.
  18. girasol

    girasol Ubuntu

    My vote:

    1)Listening in - mauvais mangue

    2)third entry (purple fringe) -snadge

    3)Goblin - thedyslexic1


    I agree with Firky about the Goblin, seems to fit the theme very well, and you only realise what it's about if you look carefully (although the title gives it away too ;) )

    Ragh! Just noticed thisun.... nice pic, but it wouldn't of made it cos its you :p

  23. perplexis

    perplexis A change of scene, a change of style....

    Wow, I've never voted on one of these before. So many amazing pics to choose from. After long deliberation:
    1. Portland Bill- foamy
    2. You are beautiful- firky
    3. Valve springs- exosculate
    And sorry to the many others that probably deserved my vote.

    Its a strange theme. Hard to know what fits and what doesn't. :confused:

    Can i ask did you photoshop your entries? and if so what did you do? The colours are dope :cool:
  25. Biddlybee

    Biddlybee making knots with sticks

    Blimey that wasn't easy, wish I could've picked 7 or 8:

    1) thedyslexic1 - Unamed as yet!
    2) Firky - conflict
    3) Goblin - thedyslexic1

    (If I had those extra votes would’ve picked: Fire, PICTURE TWO, little tree, Listening In and T.Rex in Cumbria)
  26. Firky

    Firky The first of the gang Banned

    Yup, just duplicated the layer / multiply at about 33% / flatten / and ajusted the curves / cropped / saved for web.

    For 'You are Beautiful', I used a maglite too ;)
  27. mauvais

    mauvais change has become unavoidable

    My votes:

    2. Drips - Elliot
    3. Religious, London - Paul Russell

    Very difficult as ever! Some other ones that really stood out for me: Unnamed as yet (thedyslexic1), Fluffy the Feral Cat (sovietpop), Supermarket Spikes (alef), Scrapping the ceiling (sovietpop), I just gotta be me (hiccup) and Robot Cat Selling (deep_thought).

    I've bollocksed it up a bit haven't I by saying voting's open before the last three were included in the thumbnails. Most seem to have noticed but in case you didn't, here they are - I suggest people who've already voted should be able amend their choices to include these if they want. Apologies, forgot all about that!

  28. foamy

    foamy Sheinhardt Wig Company

    my votes

    1) Drips - elliot
    2) Goblin - thedsylex1

  29. KeeperofDragons

    KeeperofDragons Crazy dragon lady

    Here's my three votes
