A moment to remember.

(Michaelerplatz, Innere Stadt/Vienna, Austria)


Magnus L Andersson




A decisive moment



The carts are a well-known tourist attraction in Vienna. In this case, the combination of the young girl and the closed slightly turning cart and the contrasts of light and dark made a great scene. She looks like a small princess on a tour through the city, and you wonder about her dreams that night.


This photo was taken 20121219 by Magnus L Andersson in Michaelerplatz (Innere Stadt/Vienna, Austria) using a Leica M Monochrom (M9) with a Leica Summilux-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH.


Just another of these shots where you are at the right place at the right time.

Most probably a shot based on Leica’s zone focusing, but possibly with a slightly too slow speed of 1/125 sec.

Processing by Magnus L Andersson


This is a good example of how well the combination of the Polaroid 665 Negative HC (Affinity) emulation and LR’s auto-toning works together. However, due to the rather large cropping and ISO 1000, the grain is visible and inspection.
