Again I was at my grandma!! :-)
I was boring and I went to take some shots of everithyng I can see. :))
I was in basment and I saw an old washing machine. I open it and thought it would be good idea to take some shots of inside.
I take about 5-6 shoots and I think this one in best.

i see that i was shoting one day!!!
funny one!
i wanted to do butterfly started with such object!
your version is more real!
good sharpen and good croppen image.
i'd like to see more idea's on this one, but your shot not mine, so, only reminds me mine, so i like it
have a nice day

hello matej Very beautiful structure, one could think of the vaults of a church. You have a beautiful sight of the subject, you see the photograph to be made and your technique becomes better of day in day.
Still cheer for the pleasure of my eyes.

Hi Matej !
Very nice composition !
It seems like an alien. I see his two eyes and his long nose.
You are gifted to change a washing machine in an ET. The fact you were boring at your grand-mother's house inspires you.

Great shot Matej. Steel objects are really in fashion these days, steel stoves, fridges, washing machines. They make great subjects to shoot. I like this industrial style shot of yours. You handled the glare of the shiny surface so well. See, being bored can have it's advantages, especially when you have your camera with you.

One day I was bored too, but your shot is sooooo much better than mine. Well done.

Hey Matej!
Is it a close-up of Darth Vader's face ???? :))) lol :)
good job!

Interesting subject we find around us and you did really well with this one, Matej! I do see the ET eyes and nose now that Sylvie has mentioned it (actually that is all I can see now so maybe I should not have read her comments!) Your composition is good and you got good light in it to show the details. Well done!

BTW, I remember another similar shot done by Paul (bolletje) quite a while ago, his was all golden. It was quite good as well.

Cool work Matej!! That's the way to do it when we're bored ;-) To go around looking for something cool to take a photo.
This has a nice abstract feeling to it and like many said already looks like something straight from a science fiction movie!
I like the shine surface that you've capture so well and also the way you composed the photo, not centered so that it looked both more abstract and mysterious.
Well done!


Stunning shot Matej! Great composition, all the different shapes and textures are excellent.

Zdravo Matej!

Great idea, really awesome!
Crop and framing are also great!

Keep up!


Excellent idea! I'm glad that you visit your grandma often, because that place obviously have strong impact on you, you are creating greatphotos there! :)
I like the "industrial" sharpness here, it is very well captured. Flash gives nice metallic tone, which is very useful here.
Great job again.

P.S. Here are the points :)

it looks like the inside of an alien space ship :)
very cool photo

Bok Matej!
Zanimljiva fotka.
Uopće ne izgleda da je mašina stara:)

Hi Maej,

Very intersting idea you had. Nicely done.
The image is very simple but effective and you amde a nice scene out of it. Indeed simple and usual things can give us great photographs


take care, Stef

It's always nice to shoot steel because of the reflections and curves here , looks very nice !!

Great shot!!
and what a great 'eye' too, to discover interesting things in the most common.. that's a true gift :-)
you made quite an abstract here, Matej.
Well done!

Hi Matej,
I am attracted not by the washing machine but by the good post here.
The lines are well found whith a good depature at right and the monochromatic side of the composition is excellent and goes well with the metalic dominant picture.
I like it

Nice details here.

Hello Matej. I just discover your portfolio, accidentally.
I should say I just discover Talent with full, lots of Imagination. You are 12 y.o. I am 74!
I am very impressed by the high quality of each of your photos. I passed about 30 minutes to look at them and I could'nt make a choice. So I asked my wife to take a number between 1 and 18, and she said number 9!
Matej, I wish you best of luck in your young life and at school.
You made me discover your young friend (P)Filip, who has also a great talent. Keep on, boys.


Hey Matej! What a superb idea :) You always do wonders when you get bored! hihi. Very original and well done. From the miniature, I would have never thought is was a washing machine! Superb :)

So great, I love stainless steel and this is a great composition, abstract of this steel. It makes great photos in bw :)

Great work my dear and keep it up. Yan
p.s. I love you new photo in your intro

hi Matej, now i see what you mean about "almost stealing your shot" :-), I browsed through your posts and found this- it is so similar, true...i guess our minds worked on similar associations while taking these shots:-)it's nicely composed and the idea itself is great (although that isn't very modest if my idea was the same:-)).I'm not giving any points jts like you asked, though if you hadn't I'd give you the biggest smile...

Hi Matej. Excellent tonality and sharpness and also very good composition.
