Four pieces of silver

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 25 November 2010 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

Don't have a lot of new material at the moment, my life is consumed with other things (mainly finding a new job hence the depression that I spoke of earlier). So here's a shot taken during the summer months, it's the Cockerton Silver Band playing at the amphitheatre in South Shields, which I thought was an ideal candidate for a bit of Lucis Arts treatment.

PENTAX K100D 1/250 second F/8.0 ISO 200 82 mm (35mm equiv.)

Good luck with the Job Hunting! You aren't alone! I've just had the worst year ever, but, just over the last few weeks, things look a lot more positive, and speaking to my mates, everyone is saying that the death grip of the recession seems to be easing

Sorry to hear about the job, Curly. Uncertain times for so many of us right now are they not. Hope things take a turn for the better soon. A great frame with super processing here, that really pops from my screen.

Good evening Curly,
The overall view I like very well. Colors, including details of view and silver luster of the instruments are excellent for expression. For that I give you 5 stars ***** I wish you all the best and good luck for you to find a new job. I keep you in my prayers. In Germany it is with many people similar to you. It is sad that it is so. Greetings Christel

Ha, that's great. this Silver Band. I feel nearly hearing them. Also the wall behind is super crisp. Christel is right, you have many brothers and sisters being out of work here also. Good luck in finding a job and also the source of humor I imagine to see in your images.

Great processing which creates some beautiful looking tubas (and euphoniums!) as they reflect the deep blue sky nicely. Great textures as well.
