Abandoned, by Tony

Today, our featured photographer on the DPNow Picture of the Day is Tony, registered on the DPNow forum and galleries as tony147. Tony is another new recruit to the DPNow forum and galleries, but he has already made an impact. Tony has shown several collections of macro shots, and recently introduced a portfolio of images of derelict subjects, titled 'Abandoned'. Interestingly, Tony has used various levels of post-processing to enhance and artistically modify, the scenes he has photographed. The particular image selected for POTD here has not been processed as extremely as some of the others, but it's still a powerful image that showcases the effect of time on the scene. This is a rather haunting picture. It's technically sharp and vibrant, emphasising the state of decay on the leather sofa, and making the stark brick wall and graffiti stand out. You can follow some comments on Tony's pictures on the forum.

Would you like one of your pictures featured on DPNow's POTD?

We are always on the look out for great pictures posted to the user-galleries here on DPNow. POTDs are selected from the gallery and featured every week day. The gallery facility here is completely free; all you need to do is register as a user on our discussion forum and you will get an automatic 25MB of space, which is good for around 125 pictures uploaded at web resolution, about 200K per picture. At the time of writing we had just over10,000 pictures on the galleries and it's well worth a browse.

Our ultimate accolade, the DPNow Golden Gallery, is reserved for what we feel are the very finest images. We invite anyone to submit their pictures for inclusion in the Golden Gallery. Why not have a look at the Golden Gallery submission form? The vast majority are usually rejected, which is why we feel that the ones we do feature are extra special.
