Lookin' Up

By ade_mcfade      
Had a walk around leeds yesterday - just took with me the lensbaby composer and 50mm f1.4

I ended up just using the F1.4 at f1.4 for the whole day, a personal challenge if you like. I've only ever used it like that when it's getting dark so didn't really know what to expect.

Well I got a lot of fast shutter speeds, regularaly at 1/8000th @ ISO100

This is a building in the banking part of Leeds, pretty horrible from most angles, but I wandered around for a while and saw the possibilities of the repeating squares and got this amongst others.

All I've done here is rotate by 0.47 degrees and crop... it was a purist shoot, so I've kept the processing like that.

The vignetting is from the lens being wide open

Pretty sure this is about as epz-unfriendly as you can get..

pleasant to look at, and a well chosen title too.. no processing is just fine Smile

Like it Ade. Just the sort of shot I'd like to try & get on my next wander round Sheffield (amongst others)

have you got any fast primes Martin?

they make the world look different in town

I've spent years at F16, kneeling down with the tripod low...

yesterday I had no tripod, was at F1.4 and finding all manner of wierd angles

really liberating, and most "distractions" get blurred out of existance Smile

Different and a decent abstract, would get my vote if I was still dishing them out.

Like the layers of graphic shapes in this Ade, work well.

Not epz-unfriendly at all, I love it! Excellent squares and angles makes this a very satisfying abstract.
