[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On my way back from Ras Al Khayma along the Sharjah - UAQ highway i saw this abandoned ( i believe so)heavy duty crane, the drivers seat is heavily covered with sand as it stayed there for couple of months already.Again the sky was blue tempting me to give a shot leaving a nice contrast with the warm desert.
Only tweak of levels, and sharpening was done, then resized for TL.

thanks for passing by...................andres

Hi Andreas.
Very interesting and a bit funny use of wide angle lens. Perfect sharpness and nice colours.

Hi Andres, Great POV and use of distorted perspective to give the viewer an "I'm coming to get you" feeling..!

This is a terrific wide angle shot. The extreme perspective really leads the eye into the frame.

ciao Andreas..
how is long this perspective.. pov is really great.. and your sight is so intriguing and effective! thanks
ciao Marco

Hello Andres,
it may be odd but what strikes me is the details of the tiny bird tracks around the BIG bucket (?) Love the long POV

Hi Andres,
Surrealistic image!
The deserts advance, the cranes must to lengthen their arms! :)
Excellent use of the wide angle, your lens works as much as this crane did on this warm desert.
You rendered so nicely the diffuse light on the blue horizon. Very good fluidity of colors. My compliments! Annie

hi Andres

This must be your style when I see this. Very tight crop and really a fitting image to the piece of machine. The SWA works very impressively for this shot. Interesting SWA lens, it is also for film/FX camera?

tfs, bill

INteresting, reminds me of Transformers.

This lens rocks! What an angle...

My first thought: this machine could grab me through the frame...
