Lovers in the dark
Lens: Sigma 70-200mm 2.8 HSM II Camera: Pentax K-5 Photo Location: At home, Sweden ISO: 51200 Shutter Speed: 1/3000s Aperture: F4

I did a test of what I could do with a max ISO image and turned it into a sugestive filmposter looking low-key. The texture almost became lika a sand painting.

Wow - this is, to my eye, a beautifully evocative photo - I'm impressed with the texture, but also the overall composition, light and shadow. I wish I were this creative.

Thanks, I'm honored! Take photos with ISO51200 and you'll be forced to be creative. I'm not that creative och skilled but even a blind chicken finds a kernel of corn every once every now and then.

Invokes interest from its form and simplicity.
Good use of film grain and B&W conversion.

Yeah, it's quite abstract. I used full noise reduction in LR to make the texture smoother and it made it almost look like real film grain.
