hi all,
went for a walk last night to release some pressure after a draining week at work SadTongueSmile
not a LB shot, but a 50mm wide open (1.8) can be really satisfying Grin

I'll be back in a couple of hours, I'll catch up with your work Smile

thanks for looking

Comp works so well, conversion is dark and moody. Great shot.

Empty swings, hanging limp, so full of sadness. The fact that the chain on one is broken adds to the atmosphere (as well as giving a very satisfying angle for the seat).
This is outstanding, hope Pete finds it.

Wonderfully grainy, Francesco. And I know exactly what you mean by the lens.

Superlative image, Francesco. I love the composition - it comments on the world with a sigh.
I agree completely with your thoughts on the use of wide aperture especially with a short telephoto: This year I have used prime lenses more and more and find it very rewarding, even with the lens stopped down a little.
I wish you and your family an excellent week-end.
Grainy image suits subject matter and composition.. Evokes a sense of sadness and emptiness.

Good grainy look to this.
And an LB shot or an f/1.8 shot ?
Just swings and roundabouts really !!

The graininess of this is amazing. As is the light and tone. Wonderful.

Love the composition very much as well as a sense of uncomfortableness. For me is one of your best

Like the shallow DOF in this low light photography!

I'm increasingly looking for images that create relationships between different elements. This is my picture of the week.

Really like the cast shadow on that swing, and the wonderful specular hightlights in the corner. Yes a wide open 50mm can give very satisfying results.
