Not a Water Tower

Not a Water Tower

A small toadstool/mushroom (?) on my lawn. The title comes from the movie “The Machinist” that has a water tower that is repeatedly shown as part of Christian Bale’s pychosis.

As this shot will also be my entry for the DPChallenge ‘Shallow DOF II’ challenge, I decided to potatoshop this image to be different from the one I enter (which will only be cropped and sharpened). This image on the other hand has been: Cropped, Flipped, Curves, Levels, Noise Reduction and 55mm mono tint (dark amber).


  • Aperture: ƒ/4.5
  • Camera: NIKON D70
  • Taken: 18 December, 2005
  • Focal length: 70mm
  • Shutter speed: 1/2000s

Well done!

You clicked the ‘+’! Well done you!

I’ve been wondering if anyone ever clicked that thing, now I know – thanks!
