krossj: Thanks mate, I really enjoy doing the abstract enviros - straightfoward fun and little in the way of innovation... will have to evolve them to a more challenging level. Thanks for dropping by mate, always appreciated.
DannySketch: Thanks a bunch!
Creatinity: Thanks, will do.

AsaB: Much appreciated, more in the new year .

Marjolein: Thanks, but I won't be posting anymore this year. Stick around for next year and you'll be in luck .
big thanks to everyone posting nya, hope you all have a wonderful new years and a wonderful new year. Cya'll next year !
Ignominious - many thanks, hope you track down all your inspirations again
Right, so new year and something new for me. Had this absolute compulsion this morning (especially after seeing some photos of a friend of mine) to pick up my shitty old cam and take some pictures. So here's some stuff from around the house - no concepts or meanings, just looking for interesting comps.
I really like the last photo, interesting contrast between the fence on the wall and the flower pot. But they're all excellent studies, and the overal colour scheme in them captured my interest too. So by all means keep up the camera, you seem to have a good eye for that as well!
The windmill fad show skills that are looking sharp.
The photos are nice. What I like is how the soft earth tones work so well together. Were you thinking about that when you chose your subject? The clay pot with the green trellis harmonizes quite well color and comp wise.
Marjolein: haha thanks but I really don't think I'm in the same league as those guys.
Aztec: Always cool to read your comments. Yes, I did have fairly specific stuff in mind, but these also underwent some colour correction in PS. Nothing major, but it does add quite a bit. Glad you liked it!
paperX: Haha yep we do have some nice textures here and there. Glad you liked them mate, will likely be putting more of them on here from time to time.
Really interesting mix of styles and media here... the photography is really neat, you've a great eye for composition. The concept of the ID book fascinates me... can you give a little more info on exactly what the purpose of it was? Love the splash page design for the interactive portfolio, as a designer, that really speaks volumes to me. The SP is probably my favourite, just simply for the portrait factor, but the colour studies are equally impressive.
Nothing to crit from me, everything looks ship shape!
Miffle: Many thanks. Yeah my lil FinePix does the job ... well ... Fine. Can't complain - guess I'm used to Photographer friends with way cool interchangeable lenses and fancy shiznit. Thanks!
DanC: For me?! You shouldn't have.
krossj: Thanks mate! The Holiday was out in the Mpumulanga province, bout 2-3 hrs out of Pretoria where I live. Cheers and happy New Year to you too!
zephyri: Thanks a bunch, much appreciated! The ID book was a great little project. It revolved around creating a visual Identity Document - no text was allowed, and you had to represent yourself and information about yourself strictly in visual terms. I was lucky to get some elbow room on there, and I wound up doing a lot of doodling and sketching things that I enjoy. Things like Driver's License info was also included (page with the shoe) and some other conventional features were re-interpreted (such a Weapon License). But in the end it wound up evolving into its own little thing. Hope that answers your question some .
DanC2: Haha, no prob was way fun dude!
thanks for the visits, peeps! Much appreciated! I'm going to try make some return visits sometime soon!

Beautiful work man! the last one you posted reminds me of nox's video tut... it looks great... naked ladies with robot extremities look great! Your first page in this thread absolutely blew me away... I love the expeimentation & abstraction... keep it up man!
