Still experimenting, and sorry if I've broken TE conventions in shooting my own stuff, but I opened my garage door last weekend, and thought of Olli, (old car, jumble of bikes, etc) so I couldn't resist this Olli tribute shot, bearing in mind useful tips from Gal and Isabelle.
I spent and long time playing with crops and angles, and at last I think I'm learning how to free mind from thinking about the recording of the subjects, and to concentrating on how the shapes make the compo (not to say that I've been successful). In this case I tried to get the blue shape tapering to a point in the top right corner. Added gain this time. I've posted the original for anyone to play with if you want to.
The title (One Colour: Blue) is a twist on the director Kieslowski's three colour trilogy title, as I've already done once for Bialy (white).

Richard,... I'm amazed!! Something happened to you yesterday!! You've changed your mind! You've been illuminated by an unknown alien knowledge. You've started a process of changing your skin. I L*O*V*E* it.

after grains, my friend, my life has changed ;))
great great pp and cropping. won´t you tell us the secret to achieve such uniform gray tone?
as for your note, very interesting observation. i do the same: i scan the image before taking the shot. if i don´t suceed in getting as close as i imagine (and my cam often captures everything around) i crop crop crop.

A very nnice Olli type shot, Richard. The bike and the old car create a very Oli composition, and I also like the noise here, which makes the image even more interesting. Well chosen angle, very well captured.
