Reachin' high...
Posted By: Rense, 03-07-2009, 08:41 AM

This is the tower of the Eusebius Church in Arnheim, shot through a narrow alley this morning. Added a little film grain in PS.



Pentax-M 50/1.7
@ f/5.6, ISO


EDIT: On request of Dave and Heinrich here the ungrained one. So, yes, it was foggy. The original photo hardly had any colour, so I could add that one too, but I woul'dn't really add anything interresting...

Intesting shot Rense - was it foggy at all or is that just the grain ? Would love to see a sharp color shot of that Church.

Excellent picture! Branches very much grafichny and beautifully frame a picture and strengthen the depth of shot

Very nice image Rense, I like the grain but am also wondering what it would look like without it.

Rense, thank you. I am sitting here and looking at both of them and can't make up my mind which one I like better. I "think" that I like the grained one better.

As much as I like it, I think it would look better cropped just below the large branches. The small branches in turn then predominate and give the whole image a more ethereal quality, as if to give the urban landscape some softnesss. Good framing and visualization.

It's funny. Just before I opened this post I just tried what you suggest, and I like it. I think I even like it better then the original....

Thanks for your comments!

Very nice shot! I like the non grained, no need for it in a fog like this, I think.
