Abstract Study 1

This is another image from the same roll of film as my previous post (ie OM2sp, zuiko 50mm f1.8, FP4 @ 200). I think that over the next little while I will take a leaf from Martin's book and try to pick a theme or two to explore in greater depth, along with my usual achitectural stuff. One theme will involve a strong element of design–line–the other I am yet to settle on, but it is likely to be more subject-based, like "Doors". My chosen image obviously fits with the former theme. I particularly like the way that the wall has strong lines, and that the reflections from another building add a different dimention that complements the overall effect (no manipulation to the image other than a little sharpening and 180 deg rotation).

Hello Boyd, I really think you are on to something here. Your composition certainly is an interesting juxtaposition of pleasing lines and angles. I like the ripple effect on the surface of the background. It reminds me of the ghostly and transient shadow patterns you sometimes see on the bottom of a swimming pool. Particularly when the light is very harsh and the tiniest undulation on the water's surface throws a shadow .
