s2art ADMIN April 7, 2009
I've created a new group; for creatives/artists/idealouges/ratbags/visonaries; please feel free to join if I haven't already invited you. www.flickr.com/groups/altfotonet-dot-org/

Group Description

concrete canvas. Get yours at flagrantdisregard.com/flickr

Concrete is grey, concrete has texture, concrete reflects it's environment, this pool is about flat pieces of solid concrete ONLY, that have either strange coloured light cast across them or shadows or both, usually walls but any concrete so long as it is solid, see some of the fine examples already posted before posting please.

This group is about two things.

One this group is about FLAT two dimensional pieces of concrete that are abstract and are like a canvas, so buildings (as a whole) headstones garden ornaments, samples of pure graffitti, will all be removed, besides there's a couple of groups for that stuff anyway. Other objects in the image must be incidental and extremely minimal, this pool is about concrete and concrete only.

Secondly it's about the Camera's ability to precisely record information presented to us, but present it back in strange and beautiful ways.

In an effort to help people decide what to shoot I've added this from a comment left elswhere.

"I just don't want to see any whole buildings or structures, with shadows and things cast on them I want the textures and colours of concrete itself only "

So when you spot that wall at sunset or sunrise and it has little more than texture and some light bouncing back off it, grab your camera and make an image of it.

Here's an example

YOU MUST add the tag "concrete canvas"

When applying to this moderated pool please supply a link to the image you wish to submit.

NO HDR images

Group Rules

I understand that ONLY flat pieces of concrete reflecting light will be accepted by the group admin, and over processed or HDR Images, will not be accepted, and will send a link to an image, I think fits the pool, when I apply.
