In the old part of town is an office supply store that's been serving the community of Fort Pierce for generations. In their windows are displays of office technology through the years of change.
On a bone-chillin' day I hand-held my camera flush against the window and fired away. The challenge was to keep the street reflections out of the pictures.
This one is my favorite because it is somewhat abstract, and it sort of draws you in.

Bad composition...a bit blurry on the left. Should have taken shot from a different angle

The contrast on this one is excellent, the perspective is great, a tad more DOF would have been nicer IMO 9- zadore

Neat idea.

Very good composition, nice sepia

I really like how this looks like a genuinely old photograph. I'm glad that it looks grainy, and of course the sepia was an excellent touch.

Good subject

Good subject but should have pulled out and let us see more of the old machine. Great sepia - works well here. Meets challenge well. Good focus. Like I said crop too tight. Otherwise great pic. PTL

A bit too sharp and grainy, but otherwise great.

What a relic!!

very good composition and good choice of color..good dof.

I love it! The grainy aspect really adds to the "tintype" feel of the photo. Great colorizing and composition.

This is GREAT ! I do wish I could see the first row better. However ....it has great leading lines, color, DOF and meets the challenge...best of all...it's so pleasing to the eye. = 9 Shiizzzam

yes! a classic. I think your choice of black and white is appropriate. Jacko. 8

I wish the three keys closest to me were in focus. But nice image.

Love the tones, love the perspective. Job well done. Justine

Excellent, love the grainy 'old' look! -8-CreativeDotCom

It feels grainy, but I can't tell if it's because of the camera, or because it's actually gritty. Pretty cool though. I like the sepia colouring.
11/18/2002 08:31:00 AM
Nice idea and I like the composition. The near keys should have been in focus though.
11/18/2002 07:34:00 AM
Make a mistake and you're fired!!!
