    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...

    Prolly reality, but I plan on staying on this side of it just in case
    Words get in the way of what I meant to say.

    I've been quite the lurker on this website, absorbing as much information as I can both from Bryan's reviews and the various topics on these forums. Outside of a few random posts here and there, here is my first submission for an assignment:








    Canon 50D, 1/320 sec, f/8.0, Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM @ 21mm, ISO 400
