dirty ol town

By tonyjf
Caught sight of this scummy mattress dumped in a side street just off one of dublins main thoroughfares. I watche dfor a few mins and nobody even gave it a second thought. This is shameful.

I expect you can give it a grittier feel if you convert it to black and white, or sepia.....or some sort of monochrome.

I agree with above, the colours don't do this justice, if you'd waited a while longer and got some one walking towards you it would have given you a much more dynamic composition.

This is great, there are so many tiny, interesting details (love the wonky sign) and the composition and timing are spot on. I think it works brilliantly in colour, it makes the mattress stand out from the black wall. These type of photographs are nearly always in mono and sometimes it's good to break with tradition.
