Urban dereliction


Nikon D70 @ 70mm, 1/25 sec, f/4.5, ISO 200


Previous · Current · Next


From the country to the streets, and introducing a little more grit back into the blog! I know this image isn't going to appeal to everyone, and I can understand why. But it was just one of those scenes that I felt completely compelled to photograph. Perhaps it was because it was completely out of character with the rest of the affluent street. It was also one of those kind of shots I take with specific post processing in mind.

I think I'm going to start putting a sig on my images again. After tweaking the site a couple of weeks ago I thought I'd just leave it out as it makes the site look more aesthetically pleasing. But already I've seen a couple of my images being passed off by other people... and it really annoys me! Give me some credit at least. Or some money :)

Great shot John! Though our likeness to entries sometimes scares me >.<
I've -just- updated SJ, and looked at yours and we've both desaturated the images leaving just the red!

Wow. Cool! Is the blur done in post processing? Btw, are you Yirmon from the DP review forums?

I love it. It is always fun to try new things. I still have to try some of those star trail pics...just need to find somewhere dark. Sucks about people stealing your images. I know how it feels. I have seen my images used in several places before including ebay auctions (not for the pictures unfortunately) and I felt rather cheated.

This is definitely one of those images where selective colouring works perfectly, and some radial zoom is one of my favourite tricks to further dynamise (is that a word) this kind of shot too.

Out of interest, how did you discover your images being used by others, and where? I never used to put a sig on my blog images, as I never expected anyone to steal them, and I never discovered them anywhere, but I wouldn't know where to look if they had been. All my main site images are marked though. Inconsistent of me I suppose but I host my blog images via flickr and didn't want to mark my flickr images, though I suppose they could be stolen from there, too...

Jem: Great minds, eh? I'll need to look at the exact posting times... see who's been copying who :)

snoo: Thanks a lot - yeah, it's a little bit of zoom blur applied in PS. I was going for a lens baby type effect. And yeah, I am yirmon :)

dgaf: What kind of ebay auctions were they using them for? It's still really annoying either way. Been loving your pics of late, but still haven't found a chance to comment on them properly - but I will... eventually!

dougie: Cheers, I'll get onto that second email asap! :)

owen: I'll have to look that word up in the dictionay :) But thanks! I actually came across my image on a site completely by accident. I was surfing through a blog I came across on blog explosion and they were posting "cool pictures" they had found on someone's website. I don't really mind this sort of thing because she was crediting the person. However, that person was posting images taken by other people, inclusing myself. That I don't like.

I have a webstat thing for my johnwaller site and I can see, to a certain extent, when people have linked my pictures. Usually it's just people posing them in forums saying "look at this pic" - and because I have my sig on it I don't mind.

I also use statcounter but that doesn't really help much - I can only see when people have specifically linked to my site... and I can't complain about that much! :)

kjm: I reported the site so hopefully that'll be enough :)

I really like this image John boy!

Could give you some HTML to pop into the blogger code that will stop people stealling your pics if you'd like.

Cheers alec! Yeah, I'd be interested in seeing what the code does... might be worth a shot.

I'm in a love-hate relationship with digital memory because of the way prices are always,and I mean always dropping. I hate buying Micro SD Cards for my R4 / R4i at (seemingly) a cheap price only to see it become 10% cheaper a couple of months later.

Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now. Keep it up!
And according to this article, I totally agree with your opinion, but only this time! :)

It is useful to try everything in practice anyway and I like that here it's always possible to find something new. :)
