Weekly Photo Challenge: Textured










  1. Lovely colours and textures. have you manipulated them at all?

    • Thanks – The Steel photo is a pseudo HDR created from a single RAW file. The Hanger shot was just cropped and sharpened. The Coin is an HDR created from three bracketed exposures and was taken using a mix of natural and artificial light.

      Information about HDR can be found on the HDRSoft Photomatix website. Hope this helps πŸ™‚

  2. Full of wonders. πŸ™‚

  3. You’ve have inspired me to post my rust photos! Great shots and thank you for the tips re: your comments to Pseu.

  4. Who might ever have thought of rust as art? One who has an eye for art! Very, very nice! πŸ™‚

  5. Wonderful texture and I love your new theme page!

  6. very creative, i especially like the coin. simple, yet striking.
    thank you for sharing

  7. Wonderful textures.

  9. thirdhandart says:

    Amazing photos! Going to check out the HDRSoft Photomatix website ASAP.

  10. rust? just sitting there, unexpected. I will look some rust and take pictures. Will see if turn out to be as great as yours!

  11. Love where you went with this week’s challenge. They are amazing shots. I am particularly drawn to the secong = the rust and those grooves – beautiful.

  12. That coin is awesome! Oxygen does some cool things to metal. Great pics, thanks for sharing.

  13. Wow! You’re a true artist. I wouldn’t have thought of a rusty metal which is totally awesome by the way. Rust fascinates me too. The color almost a mix of copper and gold. And the process of how it’s made is just as fascinating. Great photos my friend!

  14. These are amazing photo’s and the art form is amazing too! Metal as art is such a nice idea. Keep on posting as your textured photo’s bring my imagination to LIFE. Who knew! πŸ™‚

  15. These are nice texture photos.

  16. Nice rusty photos. I particularly like the corrugated iron one.

  17. How old is the coin exactly? Looks so ancient!

  18. There’s just something about the whole process of oxidation (and its results) that I find endlessly fascinating (perhaps how it speaks to the passage of time / history things?)… wonderful captures, sir!

  19. great photos! as a novice, i’m always interested in how a photo is made. thank you for sharing the info, will have a look at the HDR site.

  20. Lovely

  21. Good use of HDR to accentuate the textures. I always think rust is great for textures and I’ll often photograph rust patches that I can use to create my textures

    • Thanks Mike – sometimes, when you have no control of the light, HDR is very useful for bringing out the photo that you could see but the camera itself couldn’t quite capture – the first shot is an example of that.

  22. Vintage! πŸ˜‰

    • LoL – yes, everything looks a bit old πŸ˜‰ Just took a look at your Path photos too – love your commentary ‘Best of all, whether it is a narrow, long, or a winding one, it doesn’t matter as long as we are walking the path with our love ones.’ Isn’t that so true. Thanks for popping by πŸ™‚

  23. Hauntingly beautiful textures…

  24. These are great! The steel is my favorite

  25. This one has a sort of rustic charm to it shall I say?
    I will have to take a tour of your photographic challenges
    while I am busy plotting a course through your Space as
    it were… There is nothing like a grand tour is there? πŸ™‚

    A very good one my friend πŸ™‚
