[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hard steel with soft rusty surface and soft curves. Cranes buckets for unloading ships in the harbour of Odense.
Cropped (of course)
Sharpening (goes without saying)
Grain (check)
Contrast (increased, what else?)
Desaturation in selected channelse (why not?)
Purpose: to indulge in the strange and wonderful shapes that are all around, or is it _really_ a self-portrait?

delicate, sensual curves disguised in such a rusty material...
i like the darkness, the grains... and the water is there, as a sign which shows that things, despite looking heavy, might also have a certain fluidity.
well seen.

Hi Torben, good almost abstract picture, I agree wit Isabelle, there's something sensual in it, also because of the grain, I think. And you played around so much with your post-processing!

Beau rendu d'une série de bennes. La testure choisie donne encore plus de force à ces mastodontes de métal. bravO!

I heartily concur with your checklist, Torben. I especially like your last item: indulging in the strange and wonderful shapes that are all around. Very interesting, urbanely mysterious image.
