OOOO interesting theme, Hinfrance. Have googled the meaning of the word, which says very complicated or detailed. I think I have my idea already.

In with this at the moment, saw it today when going to a client. Wanted to get a grunge type look to this pic:

What a total contrast! The delicate complexity v. the robust 'hard' complexity.

I don't quite know what to do yet. Have some possible entries, but with Daughter over for a week, I haven't had much time for photography or editing or internet.

Trust you to find the spiders web first Andy ;)! Spent an hour walking looking for one yesterday with my water spray bottle in hand. I was banking on the back of my shed but never one around when you want one! Back to the drawing board!

I've finally got an idea after doing a bit of dusting yesterday. Probably won't have time to do anything about it until the weekend though.

I would not worry about same subject choice Paul, as angle and light in shot will always be different  :tup:

The old sprayer tip can be useful but from past plays rarely gets close to the real thing unless you are very gentle and the water is soft  ;)  Like a bit of spit onto the anvil, it is also useful for obtaining bright jumping sparks when doing action shots of hammering red hot iron.  :tup:

I was hoping to catch the spider asleep on the web as well but I was not quick enough or jogged a strand getting in close   :(

This would be my entry for this weeks comp, but I drive into the desert in 2 days time and will not have reliable internet access for the next couple of weeks.

Enter it spikeyjen. Message me with a title for the next challenge should you win and I`ll happily set it up / do the poll for you if it wins. There`s always someone on here willing to do that when necessary. If something unexpected crops even, there will always be a willing volunteer too if there is a gap /s ilence. Go for it.  ;)

Spent a day in Cowes yesterday, and it is remarkable, how many of the shots I took fit in the 'complexity' category.

All apart from this one of course.

Recording music - increasingly complex, but I have gone for an old hardware based piece of kit, my 12:8:2 studio desk. Still in use in conjunction with computer based recording. Complex, but fun. Don't ask me how many knobs, buttons and sliders.  OK, 287, just counted them.  :D

My original entry was a bit of a hasty job, as I was very restricted on time and wanted an entry.
Have had time to do a bit more editing, and adjusted the 'lop sided' vignette.

It is now like this:
