Reflection Pattern

Uploaded: June 30, 2005


Played with my vaccum cleaner tube today. After converting the image to B/W I found the reflective pattern on the tube interesting. Increased a bit of contrast in PSE

Well Sanjay -what can I say - I challenged you to photograph a black bin bag, and here we are with its technical equivalent!!! As always, an awesome creation from a very ordinary object. Love the composition with the opposite curve in the black background. Keep them coming! #271201

LOL - what can I say SJ, I can honestly say that vacuuming has never inspired me quite like this.....but I will look at the hose in a whole new light now....hehehehe.
Seriously though, this is a wonderful image and the way you have added the effects really enhances it so well.
Excellent work!
