photoblog image Slinky illumination

Slinky illumination

Ok I am trying something different, some still life photography. I think we all know what this is, its the sort of thing that prevents me from smacking people at work, its my play thing at my desk.

Theme announcement: As u know the theme for this week is 'reflection', have you got ur images ready? thanks to all those who participated two weeks ago, it was most encouraging, hopefully more of u will participate this time. Please remember to tag ur images 'theme2'.

have a great day

Sorry I haven't been around to your sites, I will be doing so today.

Very very impressive colourwise....I have an issue with the crop though! I guess it's not my style. I feel it's a bit out of balance with the subject but it's debateable.
sk: yea so do I, but I don't think its out of balance. any ideas on a better crop?
"what walks down stairs, alone or in pairs and makes that slinkety sound..." Great image man. I love the composition and the colors, yellow slinky against the blue sky. Very original.
sk: thanx Matt

Very nice shot... The unusual framing makes the slinky look really big! Great colours too.

Well done.

They've all said it's good... you know it's good...what else can I say?
"I want to be Asiko when I grow up"...
sk: U guys are making me blush a lot, thank U
This is a very neat shot. it looked like a "Slinky" but the size and background had me wondering. Perfect angle of perfection you have done here. Love the sun spot, lens flare, adds a bit of something else to it.
fantastic!!!

I love this picture! Not only cause slinkys were like my favourite toys when i was little..but the shot is amazing. Sharp details...the contrast with the object and the background... even the twinkle from the light.
