Excerpt

 

Geometry in the City

 

Description

Black and white are great to present geometrical patterns like a row of dark green empty sofas a day in March, waiting for the warmer weather and families and friends gathering in the park.

Background

This photo was taken 20180322 by Magnus L Andersson in Rathausplatz (Innere Stadt/Vienna, Austria) using a Leica M Monochrom (M9) with a Leica Summilux-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH.

Comments

There is something with patterns in nature and city that attracts me that I would never capture in color.

Comments

I don’t know why I only went for f/6.7, thereby not being able to get a depth of field and focus the image would have benefited from. I should have been able to add one to two stops, and improve the visualization of the geometry of the sofas. One can always discuss if the background is too dark, but to me, it emphasizes the geometry even more without reducing the image quality.

Comments

The only processing is, as so often, the use of the Polaroid 665 Negative HC (Affinity) emulation to brighten the mid-tones in the image.
