Monochrome Madness 3-28


Here we have Le Phare De Ploumanac’h, the lighthouse above the fantastic Côte de Granit Rose in Brittany, again. Sure, I also love sandy beaches, but from a photographers perspective this kind of coast is much more interesting.

This image is taken with my full frame camera at 14mm, f8, 30 sec, ISO 400 and a 10x Formatt Hitech ND filter (to get the long exposure time) about an hour before sunset.

The other advantage of the long exposure time was, I got rid of all the other people climbing trough the rocks. The rocks are big, and the gaps between them, too. So, it’s quite dangerous climbing on them. Although some parts of this area are officially closed by the local government, some people were crossing the small fences and were climbing in forbidden areas. I also climbed through the rocks. But, in this particular area it wasn’t forbidden.

In post production I converted the image to monochrome by using the great Tonality Pro by MacPhun. Here it also got the final look by a sepia toning.

This is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole. Look at here site on Thursday (Australian time), to see many more monochrome images created by many other talented photographers.

Take care!
