Images & Observations

The Beast

Nikon D7000 18-135mm @ 48mm ISO 1250 3-bkts f/16 Lr3, HEP1; CEP3

This was a brand new motor in front of the fire engine red backdrop at the Edelbrock booth at the Vette Set show.  The varios parts had more color tones and more details in the original capture and you could make out all of the belts interconnecting components, but rather than produce  a purely documentary image I wanted to produce something more stylized.  My intent was to convey an idea of a mechanical device, but to let your mind decide what specific object(s) the image represents, sort of like a Rorschach ink blot.

    Nice shot, Wayne. It looks kind of like a steampunk ink blot.

    • Thanks, Ken, you know I think you are correct, it is kind of steampunkish.

    Well done composition. It has a hyper-realistic steampunk quality.
