I don't know what the hell you've done here Mike but this is wonderful. It's like the memory of an electric fan coming out of the ether to haunt us - perhaps after electricity itself has been abolished
blackdog: If my memory serves me right the fan is in the light of a wall projection. It is taken in an old palazzo in Venice and this was the "air conditioning". No tweaking in photoshop, just as seen.

And here I thought it was a pregnant angel, Mike, before I read your text! grin

That is some very exquisite craftsmanship, Sir.
blackdog: Very good Ginnie, you are right that's exactly what the shadow looks like!

This looks as though it has been retrieved from the ashes of a fire...started perhaps by a faulty fan?
blackdog: LOL quite possibly Bill, the whole place would probably have fallen under your demolish it edict, instead it is just slowly decaying. I'll save my collection of shots of peeling wallpaper for later ;o)

This is some good picture, I love the way you proccessed it, love the atmosphere, the fan is just a very nice object to capture, nice job here
blackdog: Thanks Astrid - cannot take any credit for processing, its exactly as I took it. Just an amazing place helped make taking interesting photos easy ;o)

Cool Mike you have made agreat shot with your processing, slightly
blackdog: Thanks Tracy - no processing, as shot - but you are right it is quite spooky ;o)

blackdog: Thanks Richard - cannot take any credit for processing, its exactly as I took it. Just an amazing place helped make taking interesting photos easy ;o)

This does look like something taken during the early days of photography, apart from the electric fan of course.
blackdog: Yes I guess Nicéphore Niépce is the influence for this one (not) - clearly I have enough material for a series on decaying ;o)
I think that you and anniedog are in a heated competition to try and outdo each other in terms of minimal composition, subtlety and reduced tones. btw this is VG

hehe! You've got me squinting and bobbing my head trying to figure out what I'm looking at/how it's done! Good going! H.

Oooh, you know, I thought for a moment that the shape on the right was an angel.

Fun play with shadows - the background the shadow is cast against is as interesting as the shadow itself. Nice combo!
