I'm going for simplicity, with a nod to Robert Johnson...


Thank you for your consideration...
Jerry

I'm sure Robert Johnson would like this! Looks like the BTU blues!

Nice shot. I like the texture of the pan.

Hey Jerry, it's good to see you becoming a regular here. Maybe I should say frequent contributor because I don't think any of us are "regular" in here No offense to anyone here, .

Nice entry, and coincidentally I was going to do the exact same shot. On to plan B for me now.

Thanks, folks, I appreciate the kind words...
Twistedlim, I just now realized that the black portion of the wok would be a perfect break point to replace the OOF areas of the upper wok with an in-focus version to add detail above; I don't really know if composite, or focus stacking shots meet the rules; can anyone advise? Maybe I'll PM Fred for future reference.

Mark, I've enjoyed watching this WA forum for a while, and now I've seen how it gets me out of my bubble a bit, so I hope to keep up the entries...and the train/plane assignment last week showed me that if I have a good idea, I better get it up soon or come up with another one (I think that happened three times last week! )

Thanks again to everyone for comments and everlovin' assistance...
Jerry

Nice shot, you must of borrowed my wife's cooking wok, I think all woks have that burnt look on the bottom sense everything is cooked really hot and fast.

Thanks, Norm, but I have to correct you; all "good" woks have that black bottom...

This concept was one I was going to work on tomorrow night....on to plan D. So needless to say I like it and think it was well executed.

prasanna, to be honest, there was only about a quart of water in the wok - for balance and to keep it from overheating - so I wasn't really cooking...I was making a photograph! (I also removed the iron grills from the stove top and placed the wok directly on the gas jet cover, just because the image worked better that way. )

Thanks for the kind words, Travis; I'd say "sorry about that"...but...

I'd say you would be fine using a composite image. As long as it lends to the ideal the image represents, it should be no problem...

no worries Jerry, this was just one idea I had while sitting on an airplane yesterday...I think you did a fine job, and like the OOF areas.

No French chef would consider cooking with anything but gas.

Gas, the only way to do it properly! Well done

Thank you, gentlemen; I'm just amazed at the lack of bad puns going on, what with all the "gas" and "well done" remarks coming out of this week's assignment...


(Really, thanks... )
