Last Month's Self Assignment Winners

Last month's self assignment "rust never sleeps" was to catch an image that shows aging and a sense of time. 

We want to congratulate both the winners and all those who participated. Thanks to our sponsor, FujiFilm, the winner receives 20 rolls of the Fuji professional film of their choice. The runners-up receive 10 rolls of the Fuji professional film of their choice.  Winners are notified by email.

Winner: Wagon Wheel Dawn McDonald 
"I put my Kodak DX 4900 on black and white and in Adobe Photoshop 7 I added a hint of red. 

I have an old wagon wheel and my porch and the way the sun was shining, it looked neat, especially with the paint chipping off the porch. Looks like it belonged."

Old Tucson Lantern, Glenn Jenks
Glenn tells us "This was shot at Old Tucson in 2002 on an outing with friends. The mixture of textures, including the rust caught my attention."

Glenn used his Canon EOS Elan7E and Canon 35-128mm IS lens to capture this image onto Fuji Provia 100 and scanned it with his CanoScan FS4000US adjusting the levels to balance the highlights and shadows.

RustyOldCar, Marda Jordan 
"I was out looking for Fall foliage when I spotted this old car."

Marda captured it with her Canon EOS A2 w/Canon 75-300 f5.6 IS lens onto Kodak Max 400. The image was scanned to CD when the film was processed.

Honorable Mention

Old Truck, Ken Dickson
"I was out with my (then) local camera club at an old gold mining town attraction outside Canberra, Australia. The day was fairly overcast and the shots of the old houses and mills etc we not generating much excitement. Exploring a bit further we found the old truck behind one of the houses, it is not part of any display, just left in the paddock to rust away I guess. Being an overcast day helped the beautiful deep rich colours of the rust come out with little distraction. It is one of my early shots but still one of my favourite ones."

Ken created this image using his Canon EOS 500N & 22-55mm Canon EF lens set at about 28mm using Kodak 100 print film. It was scanned on an Acer Scanwit 2720s. Once the image was scanned Ken did "Some cloning to remove a distracting tree from the roof area and a bit of burning in on the colours in the grass around the car. (Less than 10% changes to the image)."
