For inside a Monument by Jerry Hug, APSA

October 2019 - For inside a Monument

About the Image(s)

I found a passageway and was able to walk inside a Monument called “Monument with a Beast”. I have walked by this piece of public art since 1984 and never realized that one could actually walk inside the structure. I used a Moment Fisheye Lens on my iPhone XsMax. I left the key stoning effect on the buildings for the effect of looking from the inside out. I converted the image into Black and White using the new in camera Apple controls from the new iOS (13.1.1). I added sharpening and mid-tone contrast with the free Snapseed app. The watermark was added with SuperimposeX application. There was some fog as you can see from the skyscraper behind the Chicago Temple Methodist Church.

PS I FINALLY FOUND AN APP TO SIZE MY IMAGES FROM MY iPad Pro 12.9. This image was totally captured and edited on Mobile devices. Some of this is explained on the recent iPhoneography Webinar that is on the member’s only section of the PSA website. Jerry

I love the idea of this image and the shape and angle you have captured through the sculpture. There is some nice texture in the sculpture but for me, I think it could be at least half a stop toned down. I love the buildings in the background and how they contradict the sculpture. Real shame about the sky. You could replace it which may work. Not sure what is going on the top left corner. Great idea for a shot.   Posted: 10/14/2019 05:09:31
