About the Image(s)

Technical: 1/100, f/8 ISO 100 at 12 mm (FF)

“Old” building and church next to my town. When I take this kind of picture, I know it is for the B&W.

I use the square format as it is (quite) graphic.

I decrease the highlights and the black, and increase the texture.
One adjustment after conversion in B&W with LR (decrease the blue 100 % to darken the sky). No SEP.

Lots of angles and lines which create impact and interest. the overall exposure is good between bright brights and the dark stone. the two vanishing lines are very powerful and pull the viewer in and through the image.

The 12mm has caused some interesting depth dimensions with the foreground walls being very large and then disappearing into the background. And the steeple is a great point of interest although appears to be leaning backwards some.

The crop in the B&W works well to emphasize the the walls.   Posted: 05/05/2022 09:46:28

I love how you have straight vertical lines to the buildings and 2 points of leading line perspectives.

Vincent, this is my kind of photography of old buildings that I love. Hard to find something in the USA this old. Even the power lines tell a story.

Many thanks for sharing this image. Jerry   Posted: 05/06/2022 08:12:09

Your cropping and manipulation has produced some very strong angles to give a dynamic scene. For me the wires add to the scene and are part of the environment. Your texture and tones are spot on. The sky could be better or if you are good with PS change it for a more stormy one to make this image more dynamic.   Posted: 05/16/2022 05:08:14
