Side of a building aligned to look approximately like the front of a rangefinder camera


Adelaide St, Brisbane
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

I reckon this looks like a rangefinder camera. I was out shooting with my oft-neglected 75-300 when I walked under Brisbane Square and looked up. This is the side cladding of the building on the Adelaide Street side.

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 650D
Lens: Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM @ 75mm
Filters: Polariser
Exposure: 1/100" @ f/7.1, ISO 100 (0/1)

Post processing:

Lightroom 5 -

  1. Auto upright perspective
  2. B&W conversion: blue level +70
  3. Highlights -15, shadows +35, white clipping -60, black clipping +30, clarity +100
