A Page In History by havehart A Page In History by havehart
A set of bound encyclopedia's in a small library in Sydney Uni's St Andrew's House. There is something very cool about sets of books like this, I don't know what it is...

Maybe just the secret nerd inside me. :P

Also available in black and white... [link]

When I looked throughout your first gallery page, it was this that totally cot my attention. I'm just a sucker for bookshelves and any book that looks old and has a history.
I really like the focus, you can really see the texture of the wrapping, and the colour is a nice, not to vibrant, not to sad tone. I also like the little dust feel.
Composition, i'd say it is quite difficult to say if i like it or not, i don't know what would have made it better, but i know this; i don't like that bright white from light reflecting on the shelve. But then again, it made me look at the out of focus shelve on top. If there were'n something to distract me, i don't think i would have looked at them at all. :)

Thanks a lot for the analysis! :D

Really appreciate it! Mmm the feel of the whole image was my main concern, as for composition I actually took this shot in a hurry so that probably explains it...

Thanks again! :)

I'm with you on this. Sets of bound books or leathery old books just have a beautiful look to them.

I know! I'm definitely going to have a massive oak bookcase with a set of encyclopedias all along one shelf one day! You know when I have money to waste on things I don't really need... just because they look good! ;)
