Today you see me torn between two images. Both were shot yesterday morning on my way to work, both with the Sigma 20/1.8, and this one even wide open at f1.8. Hmm … pretty dark these days in Vienna. It still gave me no more than 1/125s at ISO 100.
What drew me in the first place, was of course the color, but when this guy walked through the frame, I decided to include him. I guess I like the notion of someone walking out of my frame. There is quite a number of these images in my collection now, and some were even Images of the Day (for instance 153 – Passage and 220 – People Are Strange), but it is also inspired by Ted’s recent image of an Avvocato walking the streets of Spoleto.
An Avvocato, you ask? How do I know? Oh, I say, just so 🙂
As regards post-processing, well, I am really not sure about it. Color-wise I may have gone one step too far or maybe not far enough. You decide.
The second image would have been a safe bet. It’s been shot not far away, this time at f4 and 1/40s. It is a study in geometry and if I admit that I may have something like a style (I like Michael McMurma‘s notion that style simply is, to make the same decisions over and again, not always, but significantly more often than otherwise), so if I have a style, then this would be very typical of it.
