For this week’s Monochrome Madness by Leanne Cole, we have a theme; Urban….I took this a little further to Urban Decay. A few weeks ago, I did a similar post on some Urban Exploration I had done. It was something I really enjoyed, the gritty, rawness of the imagery. So this week I thought I would take it a step further into Urban Decay on another level. Grungier, darker, grittier, but a ray of light, a touch of humanity or is it the light at the end of the tunnel?
Wow, halfway mark! I thought I would celebrate this milestone with a gallery of the last 25 images for Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness
Til next time, happy snapping
I have been saving this shot for Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness. I took this on a trip out exploring an old abandoned cotton mill and factory, I just loved this shot, with the high drama, the clouds, the graffiti and the overall look of isolation and solitude, it was kind of beautiful in it’s own way.Nikon D7100, 1/250 second, F/11, 14mm, ISO400, no flash
This week for Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness 2-24, I thought I might feature a bit of Urbex from some exploring I did a few weeks agoNikon D7100, 1/25 second, f/7.1,14mm, ISO400
This week for Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness, I thought I would use a shot taken at a recent Light Painting Workshop, I think it works so well in B&W.Nikon D7100, 29 Secs f/8, 18mm, ISO200
This week on Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness has a theme – Bridges, having a theme and having a month in advance to plan, makes things a bit easier. But Melbourne’s weather does not! This was taken on a very cold, wet day in Melbourne a few weeks ago with my new wide angle, however on checking I had a focal length set to 19mm? So much for wide angle, but I still love the photo.
I straightened and cleaned up a little, then used a 75% Orton Effect (that’s why there is a slight halo effect around the lamp posts), adjusted the exposure slightly and then converted to B&W, then added a vignette..and voila! A Bridge, one of the many in Melbourne over the Yarra.
This week’s Monochrome Madness I’ve this image which I’ve titled – ‘Just do it’. Perhaps they over did it? It begs the question why is one single running shoe just left there in the park, on a hill? Where is the other shoe, where is the owner, did something happen? I’m sure that there is a story there somewhere? Does the owner know it is missing? Maybe I should write my own?– Julz
This week’s Monochrome Madness shot features a model train, I love how I managed to capture the movement of the train as it went into the tunnel, yet I got virtual a still image of it coming out the other side!
til Next week, happy snapping
This week’s Monochrome Madness by Leanne Cole does have a theme, but in a way my blog this week does. Steam trains and locomotives.
This week I am keeping it soft and simple for Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness, a white lily from my garden, high key with a 50% texture filter applied.
Here’s hoping you all have a great week, til next time…..Happy snapping
