Some more abstract shots, perhaps?
Posted By: messthetics, 06-21-2008, 11:33 PM

Hey guys, I'm not that frequent of a poster here or anything yet, but I figured I would start becoming one soon and thought a good way would be by posting a couple of shots I've taken lately. A few months ago, I was far too embarrassed to post anything because my shots were frankly terrible. However, in the past few days I feel that I've been taking much better shots and really starting to "get" it thought I still have some ways to go. Most were captured using either an FA 50 f1.4 or a 18-55 kit lens on a K10D. Tell me what you think-

Shot both of these in the back of my car today using the reflection from CD's.

An electrical tower

A fan in my room using slow shutter.

There was a fire nearby me that gave the sky really interesting effects to use as a background, those two shots are hardly edited.

An attempt at a panoramic.

Abstraction attraction

The electrical tower is my fave, although not completely abstract, it is still a really great shot. I like the fan shots too...

I like the second shot with the prism effect on leather (?), the second fan shot is cool (pardon the pun) and the power lines shot. Good stuff!

Good work. I am glad you posted them. I really like the electrical tower image and the fan images. The textures and color in the first two are interesting too.

I would vote Tower too, but the CD refection shots are very cool.

i'm caught between the tower photo and the fan photo
the tower photo because of the way you cropped it kind of shows an optical illusion of distortion when there isn't and the B&W enhances the effect.
the fan photo is just well done, nice choice of colour
