This is my bathroom sink. I'm being encouraged to explain my purpose in this shot; I guess that's a hard one to answer except that it's a cool old-timey sink, and I like a lot of negative space and minimilistic compositions. I think it evokes both a kind of sanitary cleanliness and age/grime simultaneously.

Lighting is entirely natural; editing is simply curves, crop and desat.

Greetings from the Critique Club

One of the things I like about the CC is that we get to see, and appreciate, all sorts of different subjects and approaches to photography.

This is one I like a lot. It's high key, tells a great story, and there is faultless attention to detail in getting the metal bits and ground-in grime to star in the show. I think it's a technique you like to do, as I noticed and loved your "Wisconsin" piece as well.

I don't really have anything to critique on this image; it meets the challenge, and as far as I can see, it's technically and compositionally good.

Keep 'em coming. I'll look forward to seeing more of your work.

Interesting shot. Like the overexposure and the hallowing of common artifacts.
