"November, 2012 Assignment – Rust"


Barrington, US
          

Please read the Rules and Objectives before you submit a photo for this Assignment.

The November Assignment is “RUST”.

Rust is everywhere. It is insidious. We all try to take action to stop or prevent rust. If left alone, the action (oxidation) that causes rust will destroy the metal on which it grows. Yet, rust can be beautiful, and if captured carefully on film, can result in a really cool image.

So, your assignment this month is to artistically capture a compelling image of rust.

There are no other restrictions except that your image(s) MUST BE TAKEN DURING THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER, 2012. I have noticed that some have used archived photos to satisfy an assignment (i.e. photos NOT taken during the month of the assignment). Using images taken prior to November of 2012 is NOT PERMITTED and will be deleted. Please honor the rules of the assignment.

As always, I emphasize “artistic”. Strive to be different; let your artistic juices flow when composing your image. Is the image you post for this assignment one you would be willing to frame and hang on your wall?? Please keep in mind that images will be selected based on image quality, subject matter, relevance to the assignment, and creativity just to name a few.

Also, over the course of the month, you may post no more than four (4) images. I want you to be discriminating in the selection of images you post for this assignment – PLEASE POST ONLY YOUR BEST SHOTS!!!

Also, please:

• Be imaginative and go for the unusual shot. After all, that’s what makes this fun!!!
• Do not use a shot in your archive – the whole point of this exercise is that it is an assignment.
• Submit only artistic shots. Naturally, we want to see your very best work with regard to subject matter and composition - translation – snapshots are not permitted.
• Include shooting data, and ideally, please include your thinking behind the scene – what were you trying/hoping to capture, and did you succeed?

As discussed here, the top five images will be selected by the previous month’s winner and be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo. The winning image with be added to our new Monthly Challenge Winner’s Gallery.

I look forward to seeing how you fulfill this assignment!

Good luck!!!

Spent about an hour late this afternoon, down at the Port docks/Maritime industrial area in town, in which there was a "target-rich environment" for rusty subject matter.

In search of rust I wandered over to a nearby, abandoned saw mill and found a rusted transportation system with a log pick jamming the chain drive system. I couldn't resist as there was rust on a number of different levels and I loved the lighting.

While over at the lake shooting egrets, I walked past this bicycle frame sitting by the path. I suspect it was stolen, stripped and tossed into the water to disappear forever. Apparently someone found it and moved it. I love the shape of it and the colors of the rust. D300, 400mm AI-S f3.5, TC14E-II,auto ISO 1000, 1/200s, f11, -0.7 EV, cloudy

A few miles from my house is a small cemetery known as Spider Gate(s)Cemetery. The wrought iron gates to the cemetery have a sunburst design that is believed by many to be a spider design and thus the name. I noticed a great deal of rust on the gates and thought it fit this month's theme.

I found a '55 Chevy that was covered in rust and vines. I saw the Chevrolet logo on the left front fender and came up with this.

While wandering through an abandoned saw mill I came across this Rusty Latch. I like the contrast between the rusty metal and the wood grain.
