Monochrome Madness 3-34

mm34-dsc_3236-s_wtApparently, I mixed up the dates and published my image for the theme “square” or “rectangular” last week. What to do now? I picked another image from my archive. 🙂

This alleyway is located in a museum. It’s a passage between two different parts of the building.

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 from all over the world.

I’d also encourage you to participate. The conditions are  published in each of here Monochrome Madness posts.

Monochrome Madness 3-33

mm33-600_9428_wtThis week we have a theme at Monochrome Madness. It’s “square” or “rectangular”.

I picked an image from my Iceland series. It’s a view inside one of the glass walls of Harpa, the fantastic opera house in Reykjavik.

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.

Monochrome Madness 3-27

600_2495-et_wThis image is taken at the Belgian coast two years ago in mid October at low tide in the late afternoon.

When there is some wind, people get their sand yachts and race along the empty beaches. There are two kinds of these sport gears: one kind is similar to a sail boat like in the image above, while the other kind is pulled by a kite.

As I said a few weeks ago already, you can go to the beach in every season and find many different, but interesting, thing to photograph.
