A decisive moment



This happened here and now, and most probably never again. Or, is it always this tricky business at this corner?


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


Life is all about moments that come and go, and this is just one of those.

Processing by Magnus L Andersson


By auto-toning with an Exposure of +0.34, Contrast +5, Highlights -80, Shadows +45, Whiters +42 and Black -23 in combination with the brightening of mid-tones with the Polaroid 665 Negative HC (Affinity) film emulation, the resulting image is to me pleasingly rich of contrasts and only loosing details below the large vehicle. This also brings the eye to focus on that part of the image and how close the vehicles are.
