<<< o >>>Photo Friday: Parts 15 comments + add yours

For those with an interest, this is a remote volume control for a Michell Orca pre-amp (approx. 2" in diameter). The item to the right is a Michell Gyro Dec, and the speaker is a Tannoy Definition D700 Series 2; various components/parts of a good friend’s audio system; all of which prompted me to enter this shot for this week’s Photo Friday challenge – Parts.

This is a reasonably straight shot and the only significant PS change was to remove a distracting shadow from the wall. Other than that the only other modifications were a bump in contrast and saturation and a minor bit of sharpening. The shot was lit with a 420EX Speedlite bounced off the ceiling.

I was just going to ask you what it is/was... now I know. I like the excelent dof on this image. Great to see the tannoys in the background. I also happen to have a set of -- different -- tannoys...
