Default Evidence - Left Tool

The image was taken in the engine room of a barge and is of a stripper pump, inlet valve and strainer. The light is natural. The camera, a F717, was mounted on a tripod, ISO 100, post-processed in Photoshop.



Enjoy,

rod

You are "so" good with light and texture and direction of line. I can't imagine it's all "luck" so I choose to believe that you are just an artist...end of matter. The texture is so powerful in this one that I can almost "smell" it! Or, not almost, I "can". Those mushy, bumpy, active white textures at the bottom of this work of art are beyond description. They"move, they bounce, they drip, they bubble!" Wow

You are too kind. My brother is the artist. I just have a few remnant art genes - just enough to tease me but not enough to allow me to walk through the door.

My love of light is apparent in my work. Light playing against a dark background is one of the "highs" in my life.

Again thanks,

Rod

P.S. Apparently the server where I posted this image is "down" this morning, hence no image is opening.

You and me both. The more dramatic the light that pierces the dark, the more I'm in awe.

Very, very nicely done.

One small quibble: your explanation actually detracts from the image because it doesn't allow the viewer to conjure up his or her own explanation. Your photo already has its own excellent voice. 8)

Yes, you are right about too much verbage. Although I have a few "art genes," I am a technohead and the detail explanation comes with the territory. Sometimes it is a curse. The techno genes have started their attack, I better qui..........................

Have a great day,

Ah, yes, but this was an exercise in getting your photos to speak without words.
