    Assignment 20: Congratulations nvitalephotography!



    Since Ade was very quick with selecting his finalists, the poll is here already! The poll expires after 3 days.





    First a small word from Ade:





    First off I would like to give out two commendations for ones that didnt make the final cut;


    Patham's Sunglasses, LOL, I loved the fact that you had to 'break them a bit more' to get the shot, that's dedication.


    QWrad's big pile of rubbish, again was above and beyond the call of
    duty, a pity you couldnt get to the pile you liked, AND missed the
    deadline [img]/image_presentation1/emoticons/emotion-2.gif[/img] Better luck for the next one!





    Ade selected the following submissions and added his motivation by each:





    nvitalephotography


    Motivation: An object used to create art, then discarded as rubbish, only to become
    art itself. Exactly what the assignment asked for, not the subject but
    the capture, I liked it. Reminded me of 'Shed Boat Shed' - 'Art Rubbish
    Art', The next Turner prize? who knows.

    CLS


    Motivation: Again, encompasses the idea of the assignment well, its hard to think
    anyone would want to take a picture of a storm drain, but the
    composition and capture of the shot has turned it into an interesting
    piece of art, I like how the the ball stands out as a key part of the
    picture, and how the motion blur of the water just adds that finishing
    touch.

    ddt0725


    Motivation: Not completely convinced it is your house, but nevertheless I like the
    framing of the shot and it also kept me interested for a while, there is
    a lot going on, but its well balanced so I found myself looking at the
    whole shot, not just any one key component, the house number adds a
    quirky touch, does it still get mail?

    Great subject: Where I live, the old washing machines,couches and beer boxes along the road out number mile markers by at least 3:1---perhaps I finally found a subject that is abundant in my neighborhood[+o(]

    I was thinking something like a Nikon mirror box as an ashtray. Would that count even though Nikon was trash to start with?
    Words get in the way of what I meant to say.

    Great idea Ade! I'll get us started I guess. It can only get better from here, right? []


    I just took this one the other day in an abandoned acreage behind my house. I posted it here in "best current shots" but I figure it fits in nicely here.

    Alex, you have a lonely drawer. I have a lonely door... which has nothing more to protect.

    It would be funny if that door happened to be locked...

    This time I actually went out looking for something to take a picture of instead of being lazy and posting something from my archive.

    Here's my entry, but I couldn't decide what to call it: "Rusty Cart" or "Rustic Art" ?

    5D Mark II, EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM @ 200mm, f/7.1, 1/160s, ISO 400

    A couple from my archives just for fun...

    5D Mark II, EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM @ 50mm, f/7.1, 1/400s, ISO 100

    Hi, nice submissions so far, I especially like the Rusty Cart. Yesterday evening I was out for some recreation with my camera and this time I decided to go really light with only the 10-22 on my T1i. Of course a few seabirds recognized the UWA lens and made nice poses at safe distance just to tease me. On the other hand I captured some nice spring views and I also spotted a detail that made me think of the current assignment. We had lots of snow this winter and the meltwater brings various stuff with it on its way to the sea, e.g. last summer’s toys. Let’s call my submission “Behind Bars”.

    I kind of like how the only part of the image that doesn't look like rubbish is actually the only thing that is - the rest belongs there.


    EXIF: T1i, EF-S 10-22 @ 11 mm, f/13, 1.3 sec, ISO100.

    I went on a rubbish hunt around the house and found this pair of sunglasses I had accidentally broken a few weeks ago. So I broke them a bit more and then arranged them in a funny shape.





    500D, 17-55, f/4, ISO400, 1/60s





    My gear: Canon 500D, 17-55mm F/2.8 IS, 70-200 F/4L IS, 100mm F/2.8 macro (non-USM), 50mm F/1.4
