Art of Threes - Measuring Tape by concept2 Art of Threes - Measuring Tape by concept2

Note: This is a previously submitted photo trilogy of mine. If you have already seen and commented on that one, do not in any way feel required to do so again on this. I am submitting this strictly for the "Art of Threes" contest

Now, with that out of the way, I'd like to write a little about this piece. I feel that it is more than appropriate for the theme of this contest, both because it is a trilogy of photos (which have all been tinted green for deviantart purposes), and because of the meaning behind it.

In a way, all of the numbers on the tape measures symbolically reflect the amount of deviations submitted to this site (and all of the new members and features etc), which is continuously growing and expanding every second.

DAv3 is a new milestone for deviantart, and it also brings many thousands (if not millions) more submissions and members to this site. Hopefully my entry to this contest can attempt tosummarize and/or reflect the vastness of this site.

I wish DAv3 well and good luck!

Happy Birthday DA!!

wow, this is so well done!! i saw that someone put your 'lucky numbers' on their favorites, and had to stop by to comment on that one, but when i saw this one, i changed my mind. in general, i think that the composition of all of your pictures is really unique, and i like it a lot. i like how you have a very specific style, but it doesnt limit you. anywho...i think thats it. keep up the good work.

I love the tint... very subtle, yet adds a lot to the picture... new value and form (or whatever...) lol

Amazing as always

yes it's a beautiful piece
and i really like the slight grain, and yes the green tint you've added
and the different units of measurments, and like someone said the small dof, which complements the grain

wow... this is definitely one of the best pieces in your gallery. i like this piece better than the original because of the greenish tinge. I really like the idea behind the picture and thank u for explaining it because i never would have gotten it if you hadnt. The only thing that i can even begin to complain about is the shallow DOF in the second shot, maybe you should increase it to f8 or so to bring out the details in the background and give greater emphasis to the length of the tape. Enough blabbering, this is a great concept thats very well executed, so here's a well deserved +fav for you :) (Smile)

wow - very cool. i hope you win!

the green is a nice touch as well - and i like the way you set this up

by the way - i love you (really!) for commenting on my photograph of the city.. i usually do poetry and i havent gotten the best feedback from my photos so to get such a nice comment was wonderful.

it's great that you didn't make it b&w picture, i think color makes it really stand out. +fav
