Capturing the good, the bad and the ugly of lesser-known Spain and now Southeast Asia
(1/60, F10, ISO100, 45mm)
also nice are stairs desending – do not fear the downward spiral. nice shots as ever.
Thank you very much, PD!
Great shot. I love the way the elements lead you into the picture and the tones/texture are lovely.
Thank you, Noeline! Your thoughts cover perfectly the things that caught my attention when taking it and also what I wanted to strenghten in postprocessing…
I really like the tones you’ve achieved in this one. And the through perspective and the composition. 🙂
Thank you very much! I was very happy with the way the main window of the building in the back and a bit of roof and sky fitted as well.
Seven steps – the others you’ve simply omitted … : D
Well, they’re big steps, so I thought 7 would be more than enough 😉
SEVEN STEPS – It has something sublime …
Yep, maybe the photo becomes a bit disappointing and less sublime with such a title 😉
Very effective use of tones, planes and perspective.
Thanks, Louis, although I have no clue what you mean with planes? I don’t see any 😉
Sorry to cause confusion! I was using the word ‘plane’ in the geometric sense, that is, a two dimensional surface. I saw your image as having three planes – the front wall with the main arch in it; the far wall, across the street; and the interior porch. Each of these has its own tonal value which helps to create/emphasise the perspective. Strictly speaking the porch is not a plane (it is not two dimensional) but for tonal purposes it is treated as such. I am not a mathematician, I was just describing the image as I saw it. Even if my explanation is not strictly accurate technically, it is still a very effective composition!!
Great image! Love the composition and the contrast… Really well composed! 🙂
Thanks a lot! I must say I was very happy with the composition too in the way the building see-through perfectly fitted 🙂
Fantastic shot. I love the B&W conversion and the all the beautiful details.
Thank you, Edith, good to know the B&W choice is appreciated; i always think it brings out details of these old walls…
