On photo alireza in the A flower challenge (9 comments in total)
In reply to:

Tim Tucker: 8 votes of 5? LOL

The flower is under exposed to the backround.
The bokeh is distracting.
The aperture used was much too large.
In my opinion, i don't think this picture is first place material.

On photo Vacuum Tube Collection in the A still life that contains something Electronic challenge (7 comments in total)
In reply to:

motion: Beautiful! Would you mind telling us how you made the shot and lighting?

To get a sharp clean image I set iso100 and f11. I had to use a tripod to get the 6s shutter speed. I focused with manual focus using live view zoomed in and depth of field preview button on. I set the camera for mirror lockup, and a 2s delay timer.

It took me about 2 hours & 20 pictures to get it just the way i liked.

I wish i had metered a -1/3 stop to lower the highlight intensity a tad. I also should have rotated the image a degree or two counterclockwise. I also don't like the shadow/purple in the backrground on the left side.

Thanks. I placed the tubes on the backside of a rubber floor mat that I curved upwards behind the tubes. I had to wash some dirt off the mat, then dry the mat because the water left shiny spots.

The main light was a lamp placed directly over top of the tubes pointing straight down. This lamp had a single incandescent light bulb. It also had and an opaque lamp shade which kept the light directional and let me keep a dark background.

The purple light came from a small LED flashlight pointing from the side.

Thanks! The tall tubes are a specialized vacuum tube called a Thyratron.

In reply to:

irm: Great shot. I like the simulated electron flow, gives the photo warmth and feeling.

Thanks! The purple light is just a little LED flashlight, turned out better than i expected.
