    Nicely composed! Love the contrast between the two textures!

  • Many thanks!
    The zinc is a dead matte material that picks up the tone of the sky, while the sheen of the stainless steel refracts the ambiance.

    Great abstract Robert, I really like the blue, great shapes too!

  • The zinc lends a moody feel to the planar vertical surfaces…

    No I am not in town, but hopefully soon! Check the “take your own portrait” section out. I am very interested in going there soon. A friend of ours is selling his Nikon equipment and we are looking in to buying. This weekend I hope to take some shots.
