"July Contest - Metal"
Sun 30-Jun-13 11:35 PM by Valentino

US
          

This months theme is Metal

Okay, we just had vegetable, then animal, this month is mineral, or more specifically metal or metallic. Nuts, bolts, knives, tools, old legacy lenses, steel tipped boots... If it is a closeup and is mostly metal, then it is fair game. As always, we are looking for well composed and well exposed closeups of the stated theme.

RULES:
--Post up to 7 images but only one image/post
--Include shooting info so we can learn from each other
--Previously posted images are welcome but not previous contest winners
--When posting please do so by hitting the ‘reply’ link below this top post, not the reply link to another post.
--Include a title in the subject line
--Capture must be shot with a Nikon camera and any lens
--Comments are welcome but NO public critiquing, i.e., how to make it better. This is a contest so PM's are a better way to offer feedback
--WARNING Posts that do not meet the spirit of the challenge will not be selected as finalists and may be periodically removed by the moderators without notice

The top images will be selected by the previous months winner and be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo. The winning image will be added to the Macro Contest Winners Gallery
--Posts that do not meet the spirit of the challenge will not be selected as finalists - and may or may not be randomly removed during the month without notice. To be considered as a finalist the post must be a Landscape - see criteria here, AND also meet the monthly theme such that the theme is a standout feature - what one thinks about when looking at the picture. Image enhancement in the digital darkroom is acceptable as long as the final result looks mostly like a photo - the exception is when the theme specifically allows for digital art.

Six images will be selected by the previous months winner and be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo. The winning image will be added to the Landscape Winners Gallery

Good Luck

#2. "Broken"
In response to Reply # 0


US
          



One pulley of the works of a grandfather clock.

I attempted to use my ringflash for this, but couldn't quite eliminate some glare. Ended up using natural light, 4 second exposure.

Fairly extensive (for me) post-processing in Lightroom 4, starting with SLRLounge presets, and then finalizing some particular settings to bring up more detail while preserving the warmth I found in the original natural lighting.

Critique welcome. This is my second attempt at a macro shot, so I've lots to learn.

Oh, and I titled it "Broken" because, well, like me, it's broken and has lost track of time.

Kings Lynn, GB
          

Pure titanium made into fine chain-mail mesh. RF welded in argon atmosphere it is claimed. Rings are 3 mm external diameter. Curious material, it feels warm on the hand whereas similar steel mesh feels cold.

Nikon Multiphot with 65 mm Micro lens at f4.5. Nikon D3X. Two shots stacked. Sample on glass plate illuminated from below with coloured light, and with a 'light tent' above lit with two external focussed light beams. The metal shows its natural (oxide) colour.

Removed the end of a mini mag light and shot the spring with a very shallow depth of field. Also used the defocus control to further blur the background.

Another one from the car dealership. This is the interior of a headlight. The round thing is the halogen
lightbulb. The shiny metallic facets form a parabolic arc that reflects the light down the road.
As you look into the light, the reflections are from the car, the photographer, and the dealership.
