36. Network Cables and Switch


As to 'celebrate' my new 100mbit Internet connection the theme of today is network. I captured this photo in our server room. Every cable connects one new happy high speed internet user (there's actually a total of 331 of them sharing the connection).

This is the first photo I have posted where I have used my brand new Canon Speedlite 430EX flash - I'm simply loving that thing (but unfortunately I haven't had the time or will to post any pictures with it in use until now).

I'm also quite fond of this photo - good composition, good lighting and nice post processing.

I've desaturated anything else but yellow (obviously), increased contrast and added a little of vignetting; also did some general levels adjustments. Shot using the Canon 17-85mm USM IS lens and a Canon Speedlite 430EX (directed at a white wall approximately 45 degrees to the left and with a 60 degree tilt - as far as i remember).
