SI Furniture: [URL]http://www.pbase.com/shootin/furniture[/URL]\nâ€˜Duck comments:\n\nI can only say I was pleasantly surprised by this batch.\n\n\nSavageduck (yours truly):\nFurniture-01:\nBench in the Paso Robles city park.\nFurniture-02:\nBenches in the shade outside the Paso Robles library.\nFurniture-03:\nOutdoor seating at a Paso Robles eatery. Note the â€œElvisâ€ mannequin\nvisible through the window.\n\nTony Cooper:\nI like the idea that you thought out of the box for this mandate. Each\nof these has their charm. Nice!\n\nKPetre:\nFurniture-01:\nAn interesting yard refuge. Perhaps the crop on the top and bottom of\nthe chair was a little tight.\nFurniture-02:\nNice shot of the weathered swing. The shadows provide a pleasing\ncontrast, and the composition just works.\n\nPhotoPhartz:\nFurniture-01:\nShelving is furniture. An interesting combination, Zappa albums, violin\n(I guess Zappa did some work with Jean Luc Ponty), and Swift. Nice work.\nFurniture-02:\nWell you donâ€™t see too many console radios around these days. Iâ€™d have\nguessed that this was an archive shot which solidly dates you. However,\nI see it was shot with your SX500 in May. That raises the question; who\nhas this living room museum piece to photograph?\nFurniture-03:\nI love your workstation! It is wonderfully cluttered, and most\nimportantly, I see you favor the thumb controlled trackball. That is my\npreferred input device, currently the defunct MS Trackball Optical + a\nspare.\n\nBowser:\nFurniture-01:\nHeavy machinery furniture? I like the battered, very used look to the ladder.\nFurniture-02:\nI think this shot would have worked much better if the entire church\nwere in the frame to provide a full context to the bench.\nFurniture-03:\nThe wicker swing and lemonade stand are quite nice, except somebody\nshould have ripped that tag off the cushion.\n\nPablo:\nFurniture-01:\nNice shot. I like the deep shadows, and tight crop along with the\nbright warmth of the wood along with the green leather. Good work.\nFurniture-02:\nI suspect this might be fireplace furniture, but this shot doesnâ€™t work\nfor me, it might be the odd crop, or the vagueness of the subject.\nFurniture-03:\nHere trying the same idea as in your first shot doesnâ€™t really work for\nme. The contrasting shadow and chair arm are there, but the chair\ndoesnâ€™t have the character of #1, and the rug/shawl or whatever is just\ntoo ratty and out of place.\n\nSandman:\nFurniture-01:\nNice, warm, wood grain for the stool. The room lighting provides an\ninteresting vignette.\nI hope to see more of your work in future.\n\nPeter Newman:\nFurniture-01:\nISO 200!! What happened?\nI like the solitary bench with its contemplative outlook over the beach. Nice\nFurniture-02:\nAnother shot I like. The row of chairs overlooking the harbor work\nnicely. Good B&W rendition. However, Monhegan chairs? I have always\nthought of that type of chair as an â€œAdirondack chairâ€.\nFurniture-03:\nAnother great capture and very appropriate B&W conversion. Tony Cooper\nshould love this shot.\n\nOtter:\nFurniture-01:\nNice bench and landscape. It might have been more interesting to have\nthe context what the bench was facing.\n\nThanks to those who played, and welcome aboard to PhotoPhartz & Sandman.
