The One You Are Looking For Is Not Here by DpressedSoul The One You Are Looking For Is Not Here by DpressedSoul
In my absence now
When time will pass and nothingness abide
See the evening rise and take my word for it
Focuses beyond your vision will unfold my empty space
Time froze over

Do you remember when it didn't used to be so dark?
And everything was possible
Still?

(Katatonia, The One You Are Looking For Is Not Here)

Kochelsee, Oberbayern (Germany...or should I say: Bavaria?).

hey Florian this one's beautiful, I love the light quality and the way it almost seems to be giving the bench a sort of aura or halo.
I love the way the space around the bench doesn't have to much detail or pigments around it highlighting the fact that whatever the person was looking for on the bench, no matter what it is, can't be there because the bench - even the space around the bench is empty enough to prevent any mistaking of something being on the bench.
I also like the way the tree and rocks are black without much detail other than the main outline, leaving no doubt about what it is, but also allowing it to fade into the back ground and emphasise the bench.
And finally the grainy quality of the mountains in the far background gives them slight detail while allowing them to fade away and give purchase to the bench.
great work!
Courtney.

This is a beautiful photograph. It gives a feeling of loneliness, as well as betrayal . . . two feelings I have far too often.

Ist ein interessanter Punkt, vielen Dank für den Hinweis. Tatsächlich habe ich darüber nachgedacht, aber für mich gehören sie irgendwie dazu. Außerdem schnippele ich so ungern an meinen Bilder herum. ;)

na wenn du rauschen hinzufügen kannst - was ja kein ursprünglicher bestandteil der szenerie war - kannst du auch etwas entfernen :) aber okay, das ist geschmackssache. mich irritierten die paar blätter da nur. irgendwie geht das an die symmetrie.

So fürchterlich viel musste ich da nicht mehr hinzufügen, das Bild habe ich mit ISO 1600 aufgenommen. Es sollte allerdings in der Tat eher nach Filmkörnung als nach digitalem Rauschen aussehen. ;) Hast schon Recht, ist Geschmackssache. Da mich mit meinen Bilder in der Regel emotional viel verbindet, neige ich eher dazu, so dezent wie möglich einzugreifen.

da gibt's aber leider nicht mehr sooo viele...

aber apropos analogphotogaphie, hab mir grade einige sw-dia filme bestellt die ich dann mehrfach belichten will...
bin gespannt was dann dabei herauskommt... :D

Wohl wahr...

Bin gespannt auf die Ergebnisse. Ich habe mir kürzlich Ilford Rollfilm für meine Agfa Klack besorgt, mit der gleichen Absicht: Doppelbelichtungen! Habe nur noch nicht den Dreh gekriegt, es mal auszuprobieren. :D

hey, dann ist doch jetzt der beste moment dafür. :D
ich wollte auch meine f90x mal wieder aktivieren, die ich dann mit einer 60mm holgalinse aufrüste...
und schon geht's mit dem experimentieren los, so hab ich's mir gedacht - wenn es zeigbare ergebnisse gibt, lade ich sie hier mal hoch.
