General location: Australia, South-East Queensland
The Setup:Nearby to yesterday's and last week's photos, this building has an imprint of a sign, backwards. My guess is they built this building against another that has since been knocked down and the only thing remaining is this imprint.
I was deliberately going for a semi-high-key shot here. Could also have been done as a normal high contrast exposure. Also deliberately used a wide aperture (f/2.2) in bright daylight, because I wanted the fence to be out of focus in the lower foreground, and to (almost completely) obscure the barbed wire that actually runs through the upper-left of the picture.
The camera & lens:Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Exposure: 1/1000" @ f/22/10, ISO 100
- Auto apply a B&W preset I have called "PSKiss-FilmStyleBW-01". It auto applies curves (lights +60, darks -12, shadows -12), brightness +45, contrast +45, clarity +50 and increases the colour mixes in all channels, but mainly green and aqua.
- Crop slightly to remove some street sign from the right
- Clarity +100 (to add definition to the bricks and the lettering)
- Lens profile correction for the Sigma 30mm
- A vignette: -15
The wash-up:This was a re-shoot. My last attempt at this had a bit of fence in an inappropriate spot (but it wasn't too bad)
