Another week of photos from when we had our 5 dead oak trees cut down.

5400 LBS (2455 Kgs)
That would hold a whole bunch of us SCers all at one time.  :)

You got that right. That link looks heavy!

Hope you're week is going okay.
Ginnie Hart: I wonder if they get any heavier than this, Maria? Probably. And yes, this week is moving along quite nicely. Thank you. smile

Wonderful composition here, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir!
wowwwww! What a picture. I'm reallyt impressed Ginnie..Except the object I also like the DOF
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Kavita. I was more interested in all the gadgets than in the actual tree cutting. smile
wow i liked this photo even when it was 1/3 loaded, love the hardness of the chain and the magic of the pretty soft bokeh!! well done you!! smile
Ginnie Hart: Are you having issues with my images loading, Elaine? A couple others are, outside of SC, so I have inquired about it with the administrators. Anyway, thanks always for your kind comments.
Interesting study Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: It all totally intrigues me, Chad. Hmmm. Wonder what THAT means. grin
Definitely a very impressive composition Ginnie. Excellent close-up details and frame. Interesting and creative work!
Ginnie Hart: As always, John, I thank you for your kind support.

Wow! I'd like to see that chain hold us, Ginnie. What a visual!
Ginnie Hart: It'd be fun to watch, Kay, and I'll be the photographer! grin

Another great shot! Love the chain - and it isn't even rusty!
Ginnie Hart: No rust, Martie, you're right. smile Thanks.

A very different kind of macro...my favorite kind.
Ginnie Hart: I don't know how (or have the proper lens?) to take the real macros, Sherri, so I have to stick with these. sad But thanks anyway.

FABULOUS......a top shot...
lieve schat, when this opened I just sat and stared....
The DOF is amazing....and yes this chain can hold a bunch of SC-ers......gringrin...I did loose weight so that wont be a problem.....KSK.
A likey to me, so are you wink
Ginnie Hart: You know how to make my day, of course, MLMA. Ontzettend bedankt. smile You do NOT need to lose any more weight for this chain. It will manage just fine. grin
It has been a while but WOW Ginnie your photos are stunning!
Ginnie Hart: Ohhhh, Genevieve. Thank you so much for coming back. THANK YOU. You're very kind.
je ne sais pas ce que cela emprisonne, mais c'est beau en tout cas
Ginnie Hart: I'm guessing the lumberjacks use it for pulling the dead trees away from where they fall. In that case, the chains do need to be strong! Merci, O-P.

there is a real sense of strength here, and I adore the bokeh.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Rhys, for stopping by and commenting.

Great DOF, chain just jumps out. it would certainly hold a whole heap of us S/Cers smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Tony. I had fun imagining a whole bunch of us caught up in a net and lifted off the ground by this chain. grin

I very like the close-up of the strong chain- and your lovely titles ("That would hold...") ! But I don't, sorry, like the background with all the nervously dancing circles and its toning!
Ginnie Hart: I have no idea, Philine, what was going on in the background in that picture but it was exactly like that, so I just kept it as is. I saw it as twinkling eyes at the thought of all us photographers caught up in a net, held by this chain. But that would definitely make some people nervous. grin
I like the colours as well as the composition Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Nigel.

5400 lbs of dead Oak trees cut at your place. WOW, that should have taking some effort to clear them.
Ginnie Hart: I guess those trees really ARE heavy, Thomas. All that dead weight! smile Thanks.

Not the weakest link then Musketeer grin
Ginnie Hart: I guess it IS as strong as the weakest link, Tracy. Hmmm. How would they test it to find out?? smile
..perhaps one or two people seen coming out of McDonald's! Well seen, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Man! Don't even go there, Alan!! Thanks.

I suppose they could control us all with this Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: One [chain] to rule them all,
One [chain] to find them,
One [chain] to bring them all
and in the darkness bind them.

Yup, I was watching LOTR with my g'son this weekend! smile Thanks, Chris.

Uncompromising piece of equipment there Ginnie, and it looks really good against all the sparkly dots of light.
Ingrid
Ginnie Hart: Those lights were twinkling eyes, Ingrid, as they pictured this chain swooping up a net full of us! smile Thanks.
nice shot, I like the composition
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Christophe, for stopping by and commenting! Welcome to SC!
Nice bit of chain but I would not want to be hit around the head with it. well spotted Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Interestingly, Les, I just saw a Discovery Channel show on a big fishing boat having to tow in another fishing boat that got stranded off Newfoundland somewhere...and the guys were talking about how if the chain snapped, it could cut any bystander in two! What a thought! So, yes, you're right! It's a dangerous job, this lumberjacking!
Great composition and superb execution Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir!
great DOF for his close up
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Chantal.

Strong diagonal composition Ginnie, and as noted lovely DOF ;o)
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Mike. smile
Lovely picture Ginnie and those OOF highlights in the background really help to highlight the shape of the chain.
Ginnie Hart: I have no clue what was going on in the background, Brian, but it felt like a whole bunch of twinkling eyes got excited about seeing a bunch of us SCers hoisted up in a big net by this chain. smile Thanks.
Excellent. Beautiful shot.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Sujit.
Powerful composition Ginnie... the background works for me.

richard
Ginnie Hart: Glad the background works for you, Richrad. It's how it was, and you know how that is! smile Thanks.
Nice DOF and strong composition Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Bernie.

Ginnie Hart: I had no clue until I saw it, Rian. Sure got my education that day. smile thanks.
An eye for a picture you have Ginnie. Wonderful.

Wow looks really strong! Maybe it can even hold all my camera gear? smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! I 'spect yours and mine both, Andy. grin Thanks.
Girl, you are amazing smile) This is a brilliant work . Tones, DOF, focus - all - just fantastic smile)
Ginnie Hart: Now you've got me blushing, Mariana. Thank you kindly. smile
I love the title and the chains. .. By my reckoning, it could hold 27 SCers, if each weighed 200 lbs. smile
Ginnie Hart: And a whole lot more of us who weigh closer to 120 lbs, Larry. grin I love the idea of just how many it would hold. Thanks.
Cheers Ginnie, well timed reminder I need to be off to the gym. If am to be included in that SCers bunch tongue

Lovely composition and colour tones.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I'm guessing you don't need to woryy one bit, Fotografa. grin Thanks.
wow...fabulous background on this. I do a terrible job with stills. You do an excellent job!!!
Ginnie Hart: You're kind, Heather. I'll do these and you can stick to your fabulous portraits! smile

Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Liang. It was a fun shot for me (since I don't know how to do real macros!).
