[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hard steel with soft rusty surface and soft curves. Cranes buckets for unloading ships in the harbour of Odense.
Tech:
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.
