  1. Hi Guys,

    I wanted to enter a competition, the theme "Decay....so I decided to try and think outside the box, sorry if this offends anyone!

    :lol:

    Had a great time! I realise these are risky and quite gritty, but I did not want to do the same as all the other enrants, with dead plants, and urban decay etc. I felt this set would fit the theme perfectly...

    Cheers!

    Gary.

    I love them, i love all the gritty and darkness of them, converying a very decayed and dark mood, I like my photography MORE than just a photo... In all these photos the message is loud and clear, and very stunning/shocking. Well taken, well done. :D 
     
  3. Enjoyed the series! #2 and #4 are my favorites!
     
  4. Hey Gary -

    I liked all of these - yours and those from your friend.

    Nice selective coloring, subjects, and DOF.

    Rather like a dark turn on a day at the beach, being partially covered with earth instead of sand!

    Good work.

  5. Cheers mate,

    Ian was the subject in the second set, I took all the photos.

    Gary.
     
  6. Gary -

    Gotcha on that - misread yer "of" to mean "by" . . .

    Good stuff - nice venues, btw.

    Must get all the way up there one of these days - about 20 yrs. ago I made it up as far north as Newcastle, and then ventured out a bit farther along Hadrian's Wall, but didn't cross it (much).

    Really nice, I like the mood in these a lot. It is very cool that you have someone who is willing to go to that extent to work with your vision.
     
  8. Sick, twisted, nasty stuff and I love all of them. I would have added some liquid latex for a peeling skin effect and maybe some black for a true decay look but these are good. Good darkside stuff. I hope you do well in the contest.

    I can't believe you found people who would let you bury them. True friends.
     
  9. Beside Thinking outside the box.you burry your friend also out of a box?
    Verry good and dareing theme.!
    Pictures are very realistic.Good that you place a few pic of your "victims' sipping their tea else i would have had other thoughts.

    I really like the composition of all of them. Really good processing too.

    I'm not offended at all.

    I love the images and the contrast. I prefer edgy, thanks
     
  12. They are very believable... nice job and great quality!

    Cool series, the wheel barrel in #1 covers the body a little too much in view, and the selective coloring of the green grass just doesn't work for me. Overall, great work!

    this is a great series of photos

    I like the first one the best, however the selective coloring keeps me from thinking of decay...it kind of symbolizes growth to me

    I think number one would be a better representation of decay if it were all BW, but that is totally just my personal opinion, so please take it as that
