A bystander

 

Description

Göteborgsvarvet offers many opportunities for interesting photos of its spectators.

Background

This photo was taken 20130518 by Magnus L Andersson in Lindholmen (Gothenburg/Västra Götaland County, Sweden) using a Leica M Monochrom (M9) with a Leica Summilux-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH.

Comments

I like the composition and the distance between the spectators and the runners which bring some depth to the image.

Comments

In this case, I maxed out on neither the aperture or ISO, most probably due to the weather and choice of lens.

Comments

Yet again I went for the favorite of combining an automatic toning (Exposure +0.03, Contrast +6, Highlights -87, Shadows +61, Whites +14 and Blacks -24) with the Polaroid 665 Negative HC (Affinity) film emulation. The latter provides interestingly a substantial punch to the image in comparison to only applying the toning.
