I don't know why, but I'm always drawn to lost and lonely objects.
Update #2: The subscription based tutorials are now live. Full details can be seen on this page :-)
Update: in case you've been wondering about why I haven't posted any new material over the last couple of days it's because I'm working flat-out to sort out the first subscription based tutorial. It will be available at some point early next week and I'll update the tutorials RSS feed as soon as it's released.
The feed, if you haven't already subscribed, is here:
Wonderful! Is this the 'Flip' or the 'Flop'?
Some fantastic textures in there.
The owner of the flip flop needs to visit a chiropodist
And I'm glad you are atracted by lost objects like this one. I love especially the colors and the textures of the flop.
Fine image! Lovely texture!! Very ordinary objects you shot and make them look extraordinary:-)
nice one, but where is the flip? ;)
This is nice. Makes me in a good mood.
Nice details and rendered for this shot !
there's a shoe that has seen better days
Hey, that's MY shoe! I lost it on the beach in North Carolina last year. It must have made its way across the big pond ;-)
I like to know more about what you did in the editing. You are a wonderfully talented Photographer but I would like to know more about your technique in Photoshop... Cazn you elaborate.
You work inspires me.
Where is the flip?
Really nice shot... so much detail.
Following on from Noakz's comment, I would like to know roughly how long you spend post-processing? Sorry if that sounds a bit nosey, but I'm just curious!
This is absolutely terrific!
Wonderful shot, really nice textures. I've been looking for my flip flop for the longest time. Glad you found it.
Great framing! A piece of art at itself...
I know what you mean, being drawn to lost objects on the beach, street, or wherever.
I sometimes like to break in to uninhabited and abandonned places, old factories and shoot the debry, walls, staircases, etc and what was left behind (wich is mostly quite surprizing!)
Back to this shot...a shot of the slipper on a deserted beach....(from more distance) eh? eh? ;-)
My eye is competely different to yours thats for sure. One the beach I do not even see these things, which makes it all the more interesting when I visit here and get such a different view of the world. Yet another interesting flotsam image.
Wonder where the "flip" ended up? :-) Nice shot.
Is the shoe just worn out or has athlete's foot spread over?
You have perfect eye for detail and interesting compositions. Great shot.
where's the flip? oh wait, its been done.
great shot, I don't think I'll ever get bored of your beach combing shots david!
Diffrent shot. Good Idea to shoot in this angle.
In the top third of the photo there's a lot of distortion, it looks like over aggressive JPG compression, but it looks like an applied filter, which spoils it a bit for me
Nice shot with beautiful details! Well done...
Yeah, well, try walking in my shoes! :-) Great shot by the way
funny shot.. very well done. Evocative ;-)
a very simple subject, but very dramatic with colours and mood
This shot has a lot to look at - but i can't help feel bad for the little girl walking around with one flipflop.
Beautiful shot. Yes, you are always drawn to lost and lonely objects, but you always do great justice to them. it never gets boring!
Good luck with the tutorial!
Now I see why there has been no pictures recently! I'm signed up for the first tutorial and it's wicked.
Nice picture! :)
Thanks everyone, and my apologies for not posting anything for a while.
