Monochrome Brisbane

Taken this very evening rom the top of the Kangaroo Point cliffs whilst in the company of the motley crew (Infocus Community Camera Group). I sometimes need to remind myself that night shots don't always need colour to prop them up, (well I don't think so anyway). The title suggested itself.

Martin, now this really is something. I am glad the outing was worth it and thank you for sharing. This is a stunning example of the art and craft of monochrome. I love the touch of grass to "ground" the shot. Marvelous!

Love it! Devoid of colour and with that subtly layered sky, it has the eerie look of some space station. So glad you had time to catch up with your group and grab this splendid image. It makes a very beautiful eponymous entry for the blog.
Composition lines fall into an easy sweep that leads the eye into the depths of the image - especially enhanced by the grass in the foreground which gives the viewer reassurance that we are on planet Earth after all…
