///M goodness!       ©2017 joshd
Sony ILCE-7RM2       10th place, 81 points
2s, f8, ISO 100, 90mm, Manual, Spot, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Just basic development in Lightroom ... reduce highlights, increase shadows and exposure ... cropped slightly to try to achieve the best symmetry       Extra Info: mechanical porn! closeup of a BMW M4 wheel showing the floating drilled rotors in the background and the ///M wheel cropped to look like two eyes and long nose (I like to anthropomorphize everything!). No composite trickery, just a single exposure with a macro lens ... you can even see my reflection in the center underneath the ///M logo if you look carefully (would be better if the upload size was larger!!).

    Thank you for all of the kind comments. I debated more DoF but ultimately I thought it was more pleasing to the eye and made the face of the wheel stand out more with the rotor and parts behind it blurred a bit ...

    Congrats on a top ten finish but I'm surprised at that 10th. To me this was the stand out.

    This works well, especially like the shallow d.o.f.

    Great idea. I like this image a great deal. My only problem is that portions look soft. I realize you shot at f/8 - maybe should have been at f/11 or higher.

    Lots of detail, well focused and on-theme.

    Yes - I like that you captured the facial likeness in the way you cropped the image. Reminds me of Darth Vader!

    Clever concept, well-composed. Would prefer some more DOF so that the disc and "innards" could be sharper.

    Very nice! And, yes, I saw the face before I read your notes. I love the design aspect of this. The different 'feels' of the various metal surfaces and the various tones on similar surfaces makes this very pleasing to look at. My top pick.
