These are the (slightly) better ones from my collection, taken on Sunday while scouting Melbourne with Jon for photo opportunities. Jon's efforts paid off more handsomely IMO...

Beauty and the beholder



Greening of a Red Rose



Graffiti + Garbage = ?



Beautified beer



A question of camouflage



For vertical mice?



Puke



C&C welcomed, as always.

Interesting set and nicely photographed.

I do like this sort of subject much more than plain doors, gates and such.
No equipment list here but thanks for taking an interest. My Flickr

Lovely set, my favourites are the beer bottle and the rubbish bins. Greening of a Red Rose is nice also, but the light didn't really lend itself to the colours IMO. I used Topaz Adjust on the ones I posted, to try and give them a bit more zing.

What a brilliant place! You'd need a massive memory card there: just so many pictures. My favourites? The tumbling column and the mouse-trap. Those wheely bins are great too: you known, one ought to deplore graffiti but it transforms those wheelie bins.
Best wishes,

Andrew

Thank you, I was not expecting these generous appraisals

Jon - I will have another crack at 'Rose' to attempt a brighten-up.

Righto then - although I'm not sure I done much to improve it...

Yes, definitely an improvement IMO.

I hope you don't mind, I took the liberty of having a go at it with Topaz Adjust. I processed a duplicate layer, then used the eraser selectively at various opacities on the picture to try and bring her face out a bit more. I might have over-done it a bit though.




Rgds,
Jon

Jon beat me to it. My favourites are the beer bottle and the graffiti bins too. What a marvellous hutning ground for photos. Just my cup of tea.

And thanks therefore to both of you, and to Gareth also. The brighter images certainly do look better.
