Moroccan Window by Paul Roth

June 2020 - Moroccan Window

About the Image(s)

The photo was taken inside a 300 year old mud and straw fort in Morocco. It was taken with a Nikon D5, 70-200mm lens at 70mm f3.5, 320 ISO. It was a difficult image to take, the only light was from the window and openings in the wall. The image was opened in Lightroom and basic adjustments made. I then modified the image in ColorEffects to bring out the details, then converted to B/W.

Paul - a great image and well seen, captured and composed under difficult conditions. The patches of light from the window on the floor and sill are the perfect lead in to the window itself. The processing is top notch - great detail in the walls including the shadow areas and the detail through the window so well brought out. I feel that the image would benefit from a 1 pixel stroke to separate it from the black background of the page.

Nice job!   Posted: 06/06/2020 03:20:10

Very well done Paul. Exposure and contrast are excellent as well as the composition. This would make an excellent print.   Posted: 06/09/2020 12:22:01

Paul you touched my soft spot. I love the drama of windows. very well done. The projection of the window grill on the floor is wonderful. I would have loved to create this image. Well done.   Posted: 06/09/2020 15:29:10

Paul, what an amazingly good image!

Many have tried to produce images such as this but very very few can get anywhere near this one.

I am extremely impressed.

The two shadows of the grille are wonderful.   Posted: 06/09/2020 17:16:04

Hi Paul
Fantastic textures throughout lighting really well handled I love the 2 rocks on the window sill they really add a final touch for me.   Posted: 06/11/2020 15:17:18
