Forks

Got a thin skin? Then look elsewhere. Post a link to an image that you've made, and invite others to offer their critiques. Honesty is encouraged, but please be positive in your constructive criticism. Flaming and just plain nastiness will not be tolerated. Please note that this is not an area for you to showcase your images, nor is this a place for you to show-off where you have been. This is an area for you to post images so that you may share with us a technique that you have mastered, or are trying to master. Typically, no more than about four images should be posted in any one post or thread, and the maximum size of any side of any image should not exceed 950 px.

Forum rules
Please note that image critiquing is a matter of give and take: if you post images for critique, and you then expect to receive criticism, then it is also reasonable, fair and appropriate that, in return, you post your critique of the images of other members here as a matter of courtesy. So please do offer your critique of the images of others; your opinion is important, and will help everyone here enjoy their visit to far greater extent.

Also please note that, unless you state something to the contrary, other members might attempt to repost your image with their own post processing applied. We see this as an acceptable form of critique, but should you prefer that others not modify your work, this is perfectly ok, and you should state this, either within your post, or within your signature.

Images posted here should conform with the general forum guidelines. Image sizes should not exceed 950 pixels along the largest side (height or width) and typically no more than four images per post or thread.

Please also ensure that you have a meaningful location included in your profile. Please refer to the FAQ for details of what "meaningful" is.

Very nice.

Did you do this in camera, or in post?

A creatively made multiple exposure will always pique my interest.

I took two cheap forks and twisted them as much as I could but they broke so I arranged the three forks on an old baking tray. I played with the image on Photoshop adjusting the colour and sharpness and added a a movement blur filter. I guess the religious overtones must have been at the back of my mind when I arranged the damaged forks trying to get a shape with some movement.

I am a lapsed catholic, being born and educated in Spain, now I take religion with a pinch of salt. I respect people beliefs or lack of them. But, I find religious iconography, customs, rituals and objects fascinating and as manifestations of culture, tradition, hope, despair and superstition. The camera has taught me over the years how intriguing people behavior and perception can be.

Thank you for your comments, as always very much appreciated.

It works well, becomes almost abstract.

Funny how you can have wrong expectations. I thought maybe you'd been to Forks, Washington, a boring little town near the wonderful Hoh Rainforest. I was there about six weeks ago.

Thank you Murray. I've only been once to the USA, and that was in 2000.
