lovely candid shots, especially with all the elements in the background. It's funny how mono changed the way I feel about photographs where there are loads of technical stuff like the netbook, headphones, etc... Before seeing this, I really hated the immersion of electronics in photos which were meant to create a mood / atmosphere which was not commercial.
lovely. the overexposure works simply great and the reflections made me bookmark this. a picture i would look at for ages.
I agree about the straightening, and that made me think that the whole 'verticality' problem seems to be caused by lens distortion; I tend to believe this can be exploited even further; the curves are already winding and all in all I really love the way everything gets confusing with the tower leaning towards the right and the wall towards the left for my taste, it would work even better if they were leaning even further apart. So from this point of view, I ended up loving the distortion.
Although I'm a passionate fan of Astérix too, I have never tasted a "sanglier", they are pretty rare (as meals, I mean) for one who is not a hunter. (Actually, I am a sort of hunter, bu only from behind the camera ...)
I simply love this series, I think I could never get bored of these little "things". V1 makes me think of sun and sand, v2 calls the wind and waves. Can't say which I like most, and that would not make my purpose here anyway. Simply terribly humane. Thank you so much for sharing...
it definitely is the 'big camera' syndrome, that's a common place everywhere. And it's funny when we're not only dealing with iPhones vs. big cameras... I had my camera (which is rather for amateurs, but to my bad luck it's black and three times the size of a smartphone) and was prohibited from taking pictures in the botanical garden, but then I saw someone taking pictures with a camera which was only twice the size of a smartphone (and need I say it had better resolution than mine?) ...In the end, it was all a matter of a Macro button which all cameras have nowadays, and I was only a 16 year-old kid trying to learn what beauty is, not by far a professional making money out of nature...
