A quick Post and run today.
I’ve walked past these metal seats a number of times and not really spotted a good way of capturing them. Why not? Frankly I don’t know – sometimes the obvious eludes us – There’s a phrase: ‘Familiarity breeds contempt’.
There was a choice to be made here: stand tall and have a untidy distant horizon intruding above the straight nearby banked edge. But had the benefit of separating the top of the seating from that edge. Or squat down and gain a better, lower viewpoint of the seating, lose the distant untidy horizon, but risk the issues associated with the top of the seating lining up with the top of the nearby banked edge.
I chose the second option. Colour didn’t add hugely to the image that was essentially about the bright glint of metal. So B&W was the medium for this with added contrast, a bit of grain and a touch of noise.
