zip me by dukeofspade zip me by dukeofspade
zipper of my pants :D

We usually ignore our zippers but it is a very useful object to our everyday life. And it's a beautiful object too.

Camera: Canon 450D
Date & Time taken: May 3, 2011 at 9:50:50 AM
Flash YN560: Zoom at 35
F stop: f/8
Focal length: 50mm
Exposure time: 1/10

The bokeh= a small piece of purple plastic sprayed with water the with speedlite behind it.
Taken beside the window with natural light and flash at the back of the purple plastic:)
To get the good detail I used tripod :)

This is a superb and original work, I've never seen anything done like this before. The details are amazing, the way you blurred certain areas and all the colors together is perfect. I also love the slight bokeh in the background, it really adds the perfect touch to bring it all together.
This has to be one of my all time favorites from your works, you have plenty of amazing things but this one is up there in the top five.
I can honestly say that I don't have one bad thing to say about this, you really pulled off a unique and inspirational piece here and I hope to see more like it from you in the future, keep up the great work. :D

Everything is wonderful in this picture.
Colours, composition, background, depth of field.
This is not a zip to examine: it's a zip to contemplate.

It's pretty interesting, how the shot makes the zip look like a tower with a train track passing through it, rather like a toy city. There's a sense of childish (and I mean that in a positive way - the way a child sees things) amazement in how such a simple, ordinary thing acquires almost magical, fantastical properties. I liked the feelings it evoked in me.

This is so beautiful. It is obviously a still zipper, but for some reason I feel as though it's in motion and zipping as I stare at the image. To be able to capture such an ambigious position where the onlooker must really see the photo is truly wonderful and magical! Congrats!!
