Shot in camera B&W jpg. In PS, resized to 1200x800 (maintain aspect). Sharpen filter. Convert to Greyscale (to save space if needed).

Saved as JPG copy of original.


Had not planned to enter anymore DPL, but one teammate would be missing this one for suspension, so I wanted to help out (if I could). Found these old locks at an estate sale on Friday and got them all for $1.00. Had to remove all the keys from them, so if I want to use them for anything, I have to hunt (each is keyed differently). They are only about 1" wide each... very tiny, not sure their purpose, but they are Master Lock brand.

Lined them all up and then experimented with different angles, etc. Long shutter speed, then fire a snooted flash manually from different angles.

Took 192 shots RAW+jpg to get this one.

It's DPL
It will tank.

My last shot on DPC for a long time.

5.13 as I write this. Our DPL season is over -- last shots submitted and my time here is as well.

Take care everyone.
