    Well, your rectangles also qualify as lines:-)

    I had to go out today for some 1/2 hour and I took the camera and etc with me in the car.
    I shot this picture in the center of Setúbal.
    There is a little distortion in the window at left ... eek7.gif

    Ok - Watch out Nik, I'm joining the marching band!!clap.gif 1drink.gif

    These were all shot this evening with a Tamron 180 macro at f18 to f25 in Manual Mode, and illuminated with a SunPac FP38 Flat Panel flash unit triggered with a PW. I really am liking the SunPac FP38 flat panel flash thumb.gif , its guide number of 35 is just about perfect for macros at small apertures.

    Straight lines first - I always think first of B&W for graphical assigments like Lines and Curves, Nik. But sometimes, monotones work well for me also.

    Straight Lines and Curves

    From my airconditioner grill - B&W of course

    A Klipsch speaker cabinet
    86925069-L.jpg


    An audio analyzer B&W again
    86924195-L.jpg


    And now, Curves and Circles

    A wooden drawer pull - monotone

    A vase in B&W - cuves and circles

    I'll ask her, but she is busy this summer teaching nurses, so I doubt she'll be joining us.

    But I will ask her. Thanks for the welcome Nik!:):

    Thanx Darth, I hope to participate in your future lessons, great to flex the "eye". Haven't had time to PP them but I think they might work well in b&w, high contrast to play on the geometrics! (Kodalith film effect)

    Another view for you!

    I only wish you had spent just a few seconds in PS or ACR and straightened the shot, it looks a bit skewed, kinda spoils the othwerwsie nice impression rolleyes1.gif

    Chris,
    I knew somebody would bring this moon circle in! thumb.gif
    Nice patterns, too (but promise you'd retake it when we get to "Patterns" one mwink.gif )
    And I like the rectangles with the smiley! thumb.gif
    I would probably only crop the last row, it's incomplete anyway, to make it a perfect grid (we don't have to afraid of having non-2:3 crops! mwink.gif )
    Cheers! 1drink.gif

    If I remember my math, this surface is called "hyperbolic". One the the amusing facts about it is that this perfectly smooth curvy thing can be contstucted from the straigt segments..:):

    So... anything fresh to the point? mwink.gif
