photoblog image Dimples

Dimples

Again following in the "abstract macro" concept of yesterday's shot. This was the wall pattern at Westminster tube station along the Jubilee line. The same technique was used - the camera was about 1cm away from the wall, making the pattern very dramatic. I think this gives a new perspective to mundane things around us that we usually overlook.

Tomorrow I'll be putting up some shots from a fashion show I covered 3 days ago. Stay tuned....

as always, beautiful abstract Duane
The Maven: Thanks Ade.
Nicely executed. It looks like a cheese grater. Hmm, that gives me an idea. I'll dust down the macro lens. Watch this space.
The Maven: LOL... now that's an idea. Noticed you posted a "pattern" type photo today as well. Nice one! We should make a month magazine with a focus on themes. Then we can all contribute our shots to it.
OK, my feeling is that your focal point is too far to the right. I would have preferred to see the focussed dimples one or two columns to the left. My only caveat to the comment is that I wonder how it would then have looked with the focal point in the centreline. I guess I would need to see both and that you may have already considered this.

I have a similar repetition photo lined up for a little ove a week away (a fence) and would value your opinion on it. I had a similar dilemma as to where to focus along it's length.

Keep it up Duane, love your macro work.

p.s. I am away all next week hence lining up images so far in advance!
The Maven: That's a great comment. You have a point about the focus. I have to agree that the foreground is a bit too blurry. Make good use of that photo queuing system. I'll be sure to continue checking out your blog everday!

Very well done, the lines converge so nicely, and I don't think you could've done any better with the dof! Perfect.
The Maven: Thanks Micki. Glad you liked it! smile
I like pattern photos like this. B&W is also nice, no distraction by colours.
The Maven: Cheers Chantal! This is actually original colour - the walls are grey. But on top of that I've desaturated the scene to remove any colour cast from the flourescent lighting in the station.
Interesting. Check out a very similar shot here. This one though is a speaker.
The Maven: Thanks for the comments Navin! I must have missed your link to the speaker. Didn't see it on your blog either.
Nice abstract! Kinda reminds me of the surface of a golf ball...
The Maven: Golf ball? That's a very good idea for another abstract shot!
Nice idea. Like the perspective and the dof.

Great abstract. Seeing images like this help to teach me to look a little more closely at my own surroundings.

Nice, need to inspire myself to take some pics like this. You may be surprised to see something abstract from the Subster soon. smile
I love macro's as you've probably noticed. Seeing the common in an uncommon way is always good!

Lovely texture and pattern. Very simple, but effective.
