Challenge: Garage Art (Basic Editing I)
Camera: Canon PowerShot G5
Location: My Garage, Oceanside, CA
Date: Feb 3, 2004
Aperture: f/3
ISO: 50
Shutter: 1/60
Galleries: Still Life, Macro
Date Uploaded: Feb 3, 2004

Taken at my work bench - in the garage. Nothing too fancy - used a flashlight perched on my lap to brighten the iron and solder, and shot in manual mode at 1/60 second to eliminate blur. Very little processing - levels, cropped and flipped, sharpened. Then saved and ran through Neat Image to get rid of some graininess in the smoke.

Hi Scott,

Sorry that I didn't comment or vote but real life got in the way :). Nevertheless it is a great photo and fits the challenge wonderfully. Congratulations with your deserved second place.

Beautiful, another wonderful ribbon winner. The colours and textures in the droplet are really appealing and the "tick" shaped composition works so well.

Guess that new G5 paid off: 1 challenge, 1 ribbon. :) Too bad my Shallow DOF entry won't follow suit. :(

Thanks to everyone who voted and took time to comment.

my favorite in the challenge. great colors. I like the shape and texture of the solder blob and the long exposure, blurring the steam.

One of my favorites so far. Fits the challenge and I like the composition and the lighting. The lighting at the end and on the smoke, with the slight purplish tint is nice. Good luck in the challenge.
