    Very nice lighting, Yegor, I really get the feeling from the picture.

    Are you asking for contributions? Not quite the same, but here's one I did quite a while ago -- the ancient, old thing in the middle is my grandmother -- doesn't she look fierce? (She was.)

    Okay. Enough's enough.

    Rob you take your army in from the south west and I'll attack on the northern front. If he makes a run for it we'll do a pincer movement and cut him off at the Trossachs. That'll slow him down.

    Doing a photo of the nature we steal its ideas, concluding them in a captivity. The nature should enjoy silently! Even the photoshop will not make it more beautifully. An another matter - creative ideas. It as music. ( not about my photos, I'm the beginner)

    Thank you all for fine works which we see on this site

    I can run pretty fast when pincers are brandished in near proximity to the Trossach region. Anyway last time you lot tried that you got within spitting distance of London and then decided you had left the porridge on the stove

    Yegor, your first image inspires such great story, thank you for sharing that.
    Steve, the pocket watches on black is gorgeous. I'm sure there are all sorts of technical details that I don;t understand, but it immediately reminded me of infinity mirrors. You know the ones? They reflect back and forth infinitely. Except with yours it's a play on infinite time. (Yes, I realize it isn't reflected on both sides, or is it? ) Love it.
    (There's gotta be poetry that speaks on that. Anyone?)

    Thanks Suzanne. See Rob's set up HERE. Well it is nothing like that..actually it is similar. I used a single flash with a 5m ETTL cord and fired it through a shoot through brolly. I used two pieces of the art card that Rob is using as a backdrop. One as a base and one as a backdrop. The PP gets rid of the join and and the black is made uniform by using the black dropper in levels adjustment. Click the black dropper on the darkest part of the background and keep clicking until you get uniform black. My finished version is two duplicate images side by side with one reversed. I do have a lightbox and daylight spots but I am an ockard sod and prefer to do things the hard way.

    You got a wrong link in there. It's taking us back to the front page.

    I think you meant this

    I agree. A beautifully constructed and crafted image.

    Re: Needful Things

    Cheers Kay, Yegor and Donald; it was how I used to do it before I learned the rules where it must all be correctly exposed. But the hardest thing was getting the perspective right because old buildings are a bit wonky.

    Having a calibrated screen gives a little confidence to go darker.

    And we were having a discussion (was it just yesterday) about knowing all the rules, so that you know when to break them, as some times it is appropriate to do. Case in point!

    OOps! As if I would dare!

    Just for the avoidance of doubt - It was the 'rules' of picture-making to which I was referring.

    Now I'll be seen as a subversive.
