The Whole Shot -- Theatre Chairs

I was asked to show the whole shot and here it is. OK, but not as good as cropping to the right side only.

Turntable II

Reminds me of a Japanese painting. I did wonder about increasing the contrast but I like the subtlety here so backed off on pushing it further. The other question would be whether I should have trimmed off the rivets and brackets but I didn't want to lose the material at the bottom and think the framing by this material works. As usual, click on the image to see it 1000 pixels wide.

I did something radical here - I cropped the left half of the picture - there was a second chair, with weathered wood and some white stuffing sticking out in a nice arc, but it detracted from all this - which is what really attracted me to the chairs in the first place. So it had to go.

The obvious question is why didn't I shoot it this way in the first place - all I can say is 'wish I had'.

Hanna Turntable

From the north side of the turntable, with the remains of a snowdrift next to it reflecting in the shiny metal. Two images, stitched, minor cropping (I'd originally included rivets at top and bottom but prefer this look.
