The Gulf Photo Plus event is now at the end of day two. I've presented my 'Creating Dramatic Images', 'Portrait Retouching', and my 'Photoshop: from download to print' workshops, and will be running my 'HDR Crash Course' tomorrow, followed by my landscape workshop on Thursday and Saturday. I'll also be giving one solo presentation during Photo Friday - An Introduction to HDR Photography - and will be taking part in a panel discussion on 'Getting your work out on the web and on social media' with Joey L and Manny Librodo. A busy week, but a great one :)
As for this shot ...
I suspect that most of you know what class of item this is, but will be really impressed if anyone can provide an exact identification :)
My vote goes for the lens of a Dubai airport security camera. Regardless of what it is, I like it!
I can see reflection of people and i can see arbic letters of an add. I think it is a displayed lense in a shop window combined with reflection.
i reckon it's the headlight of a newer model Audi, photographed in a car park, or maybe on a street in front of a shop window.
In the camera line of items. Agree regarding the arabic type/ad reflection. I also see lost of reflected flourescent lights. Possibly security camera at airport in Dubai? It looks like a lens inside a glass sphere (a la security camera)...Perhaps it is the reflection of your own camera (i.e., self portrait) in a curved reflective surface/window?
My guess: Security camera. Dubai Metro, Red Line. Falconcity of Wonders.
I think it's a mirror.
Awesome abstract David. I think it's HAL's cousin, MAC. (HAL: from Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey)
Blackpool Tower Bustop / telescope / .... even though you're in Dubai...
Security Camera for sure. Prolly on a roadside showroom.
I go for a peephole, porthole or something like this, I don't think its a lens of a security cam nor David's Ricoh..
This is a shot of the front element of a Canon 24-105 f/4 L, shot from about 5mm from the front of the lens. One of the great things about the Ricoh is it's macro mode - you can almost rest the camera against the object you're photographing and still focus.
I'm seeing a drawing of the Eiffel tower in the top part of the image! I believe this is the picture of a doorknob taken with a fish-eye.
very creative shot .... love the illuminations ...
No, I never would have guessed this. You really have such a great imagination and vision. Classic example of "seeing creatively" :)
