Shadows in Symmetry. (Shadow Saturday ).

By UrbaneMagick
Hope you have all had a great week.

I've not put a photo forward for " Shadow Saturday" before, but think this one may fit the bill.

I've also uploaded the colour version as a variant.

Have a great weekend.

Bit of a dirty sensor, Gareth, but a lovely pattern of strong shadows.

not sure if it is the lens or the sensor Dave..but whatever it is, it definitely needs a clean,

I high passed in the processing to keep the hot day look.

This is a fine, strong composition, almost an abstract. Plus those tiny figures.
Will you be offended if I make a couple of suggestions? It needs a couple of degrees rotation clockwise - check out the sea horizon; plus there are a number of dust bunnies in the sky, which need to be removed. A few minutes extra work would lift this to something really special.

I've never risked cleaning the sensor myself although I know it can be done. I'd advise that you make enquiries with any local independent camera shops or repairers. In the North East, APM Camera Repairs on Old Eldon Square, Newcastle do it very conscientiously for 10, I know you're the opposite end of the country but it gives you something to aim at!

Hi Gareth, great shot I do like the harsh shadows used to good effect! I do clean my own sensor and it is not as daunting as you might think. You have to take your time and most important use the correct, good quality swabs. You can go on youtube for various instructions and they will show just making one pass with the swab across the sensor, well that's not always the case it may take several passes to get it completely clean. I use a sensor lupe to check it but not everyone likes to use them but I`ve found it works for me and it has saved me money over the years. If you can get it done for 10 that`s fantastic value, our local shop charges 30-40. If you do not feel confident to clean it yourself then my advice is don`t!! Not really much help, sorry!!,,,, IanSad
