I'm coming out of the closet... I'm a rust junkie

Posted Image

I took this shot that is over saturated , over sharpened and liked the luminescence... I thought it might print well on metal... So I had a triptych done of other shots and they pop on the wall. (Also has barnacles & moss)

These are mounted on aluminum plate

Very, very attractive: I love the colours and I bet that they look spectacular on the wall?

I understand your addiction when I see those colours. Very nice! Please share more.

I guess aluminium works great with these type of pictures.

I don't think there's any help for you if you keep making images like this. :D

The color of the triptych fits nicely with the huge oil painting (?) on the wall. Like the objects on the table, too. :)

Rags, one could spend a lifetime exploring the photographic opportunities presented by rusting metal! I think you are really on to something. A style all your own, culminating in a book showcasing the best of your rust images? I'd buy it!

While I certainly appreciate the above rust "abstraction", I would also love to see rust that had a subtle yet identifiable image - like seeing images in clouds!

This really is so cool..... I clearly see the evil car eating curse..... but it looks so pretty like a dream coral reef.
