STILL LIFE 64 – TRENCHARD STREET CAR PARK (MONO + COLOUR)

 

 

trenchard-street-car-park-mono-colour.

Looking up at Trenchard Street Car Park, central Bristol; 16 Sept 2016.

Tilted (at capture) to produce a strong diagonal, a dynamic that I prefer to leaving things staidly horizontal.  Then processed to give an almost pure black and white look – black and white,  two blank tones that reveal no detail.  Restoration of the rear lights’ colour provides two small focal points.

I suppose that what I’m aiming at, what I like to think, is that such an image becomes less a representation of reality, and more a piece of design.  Such an attitude may seem pretentious, but it does represent to some extent “where I am” with regard to images.

X-T1 with 55-200 Fujinon lens at 305mm (equiv); 400 ISO; Silver Efex Pro 2, including selective restoration of colour.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    No pretentious at all, that’s exactly what you do sometimes, especially with the cars and street shots. And you always do a great job with the color and contrast – that bit of red left in the picture is perfect. Happy Sunday!
