Ten Green Bottles

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 10 April 2010 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

A prize winning game on a stall in the Ocean Beach Amusement Park, South Shields, but as you will be aware winning prizes is just incidental to spending your cash!

Oh yeah, you noobies will notice that at this focal length f8 doesn't give you a massive depth of field.

PENTAX K100D 1/60 second F/8.0 ISO 200 82 mm (35mm equiv.)

Very good image! The perfect color and light! An image with lots of movement! It is a HDR? Curly... excellent!

Your shots are pure art, Curly - and this one is just amazing! Can't take my eyes off - I love the shade of green and the great angle. 5***** :-)

jkirlin from United States

Nicely done. If I lived near South Sheilds, they'd have to drag me out of there.

Bettina from Los Angeles, United States

Great perspective, the repetition stacking into the distance. The red reflected in the green is great.

Stephen Phillips from San Francisco, United States

I love the repetition and refracted light in all of the bottles, curly. At first I thought we'd landed in a bottling plant and then my eye discovered the two little rings cast aside them. The old 'carny' game. Excellent.

I am not good at the new maths they use these days but looks like more than ten green borttles to me :)

10 Apr 2010 6:47pm

@JJ: You are right, I have counted at least 65!

T.h.o.m.a.s. from Paris, France

very nice DOF. Congrats!!

Cory from Phoenix, United States

Nice pattern and colors. F8 gave you good DofF. Not so shallow so as to destroy the composition and not so deep to ruin the feel.

Kate from Guelph, Ontario, Canada

Great shot, Curly - love the pattern.

This might be a discrepancy between my monitor and yours but this feels like it needs more dark tones in it. I will have to calibrate my monitor again soon!
