Challenge: Triptych III (Basic Editing*)
Camera: Canon PowerShot SD700 IS
Date: Oct 19, 2009
Galleries: Black and White, Diptych / Triptych
Date Uploaded: Oct 19, 2009

I haven't entered anything in a long long long long time. Now is the time. I'm not completely happy with it, and I don't think it will score well, but I need to get back in to the game. My cameras have sat collecting dust for too long.

When in doubt, I always go back to this typewriter. I've used it 3 or 4 times before, usually with good results.

All three photos were taken with the Canon SD700. In Photoshop CS3, adjusted levels, shadow/highlight, black & white, contrast, unsharp mask, resize, canvas size, all put together onto one new canvas, added some noise for effect.

Prediction -> below a five...and I don't really care about that

i really think this is great - the grain reinforcing the era, the bold composition, and how you distilled the typewriter to its elements

Glad you missed on your prediction but what the heck is this doing way down here? My favorite of the challenge - excellent "story", very well composed.

Nicely done. Even lighting, some added grain. Nice arrangement, and putting Royal and the chrome strip at an angle adds interest and relief from the otherwise almost exclusive vertical / horizontal lines.
