As many others here at the year's end I have been backing up some image files and folders (and deleting some, of course) and rediscorvered some projects that I had started but never finished up. This is one of them.

#1 White abstract



#2 Ornamental chimney



#3 On a very bright day



#4 Benches and windows



#5 Another set of windows



#6 White shapes



#7 Columns and windows



#8 White facade



#9 A single light



#10 White in the night


Sony A99 with Tamron F/3.5-6.3 28-300mm Di PZD

Thanks for viewing! C&C always welcome!

I like the pops of color in #3 and #4... just enough to make the white more interesting. The use of framing, light, and shadow in #10 is very nice.

Great series as usual! My favorite might be number 3 but I s'pose I would have probably liked it if you'd positioned yourself just slightly to the left in order to separate the lamppost from the pillar. But it's a great composition, just a bit more complex than some of the others, but in a good way.

I also really love 9, great eye for noticing that one light.
I detest bugs, especially spiders.

Fine set - my favourite is #4, but like them all.

#10 is #1. A very nice series, flowing together with the bits and pieces of color augmenting the images considerably.

I think I agree with Roger about #10. It's the little figure that makes the photo for me. It's a close call though - 1,2 and 4 also are very eye catching.

    1,4 and 10 hit me immediately. Great shots. #1 an eye-deceiver but works so well as what we initially see. #4 those little splashes of really bright, happy colour, and #10 the intrigue, the frames, the composition, the way the eye is drawn through - the bright background. The lights are a bit problematic but the positive aspects shine much brighter.

    But there are lots of goodies here.

    Great series but #10 is the stand-out for me. I suspect you took a firm hand with the perspective & I think that was a good call - really elevating it. (Mind you I haven't seen the original.)

    While I agree with the consensus comments, I'd have to add kudos for #6. Few would have seen that shot.

    About #7 - I shot something eerily similar a couple of days ago. We shall see what becomes of it...

    Cheers

    You mean my image? I haven't even decided if it's a keeper or not, let alone processed it. You haven't seen it & likely never will!

    Harald, I Love this stuff. The word is simpatico. These photos look like Art Deco Contiguous
    Art Deco is a favorite style. You do pastels in superior forms as well

    Keep up the excellent work. Always look forward to your photographic expeditions.
