This is a fine piece of photography. Minimal in its construction and geometrical oriented.

Pros : the composition is well balanced, bringing an odd (mathematicaly) symetry (left stairs/right stairs) ; the contrast is very good and the deep (especialy in the shadows) and the texture of the back wall is intense ; the two yellow bands bring some internal boundaries.

Cons : I guess the picture was not taken 100% parallel to the back wall (view turned to the left), leading to a slight perspective impression that leaves me a small regret ; the time of the day might be a little too early/late : I think a bit longer shadows might add even more depth to the picture (especialy on the right stairs where they're absent), also the left hand yellow band is a bit in a highlight at the end, I think a more uniform lighting (like the right-hand one) would leave a better aesthetic.
What do you think?

Thanks a lot, mate. I'm particularly glad of this picture cause I had to take it in a hurry. :D
I'm very much into analog photography, haven't tried it out much by myself though. How about you?

Haha quite the same! :nod: Yet I think I'm just too lazy to try. An excuse is that I don't like an idea that other people will develop my film.. I find the quality of analog photo much better than digital one, though.. :thumbsup:

That's true. I have a few rolls of medium format film in my fridge, but also don't like the idea to give them in some laboratory. At the same time I'm not familiar with how to develop film at home. Hope that someday I'll find the time to give it a try. :eager:

Until then I'll continue faking an analog feeling in some of my pictures by using some pre-made filters and actions. :lol:

MF is really great! I love the feeling it has no geometric distortions and has more "air".. What MF camera do you have btw?
Yet I don't think it's a fake.. Well, if you press a "make-it-beautiful" button and that's all... and do the same iterations for all of your works.. then, yes maybe. And if you use different tools, work trying to catch and stay creative.. then it's not fake in my opinion, absolutely! ;) Oh, I'm not against digital.. Just regret that the film is better :D

It's especially awesome how the details come out if you scan the rather huge medium format negatives. :wow:

I have an old Agfa Billy and an Agfa Klack, which is a simple box camera - but its huge advantage is that it should be rather easy to take multi exposures: :excited:

Ha ha, I see where you're coming from. Using the same Photoshop actions for every new image is certainly not that creative. :nod: I always edit my photos intuitively, I even use different editing software. There's always a creative process indeed, so you are right...that's not fake. :)

A dynamic and vibrant abstraction! The splash of yellow against the neutral tones completes the scene.

Thank you very much, Darren. It's one of those snapshots that turned out better than expected. It was so incredibly hot that day that I was just hurrying up to get into the next air conditioned building (a very fine museum of contemporary art), but I dared stopping for a few seconds and took this shot before the soles of my shoes began to melt away. :lol:

Hah! Yes, now that you mention it there's something about the quality of sunlight captured (or processed) which subtly hints towards some sort of great heat. I commend you for having the courage to step out into that sort of weather; I wouldn't have left the safety of a cool place to start with!

Well, I had to step out in the heat...you know, like "I have paid for this journey and I won't allow the weather keeping me from having a good time." And it was worth it, these are the steps to the entrance of the mumok where I took two of my personal favourite shots of 2012: [link] & [link] ;)

Also, the museum was air conditioned. :D

Vielen Dank, Chris! Im Nachhinein hätte ich mir doch ein bisschen mehr Zeit lassen sollen (die Geometrie ist nicht 100-prozentig...), aber wäre ich länger stehengeblieben wären mir wohl die Schuhsohlen weggeschmolzen. :lol:

Oh, da bin ich aber gespannt. Werde in den nächsten Tagen mal einen Blick darauf werfen. :eager:
