Submission for Contest #104 April 2015: Fill the Frame
Contest Number: 104 Contest Theme: Fill the Frame Lens: Tamron 28 mm 2.8 Camera: Asahi Pentax Spotmatic Shutter Speed: 1/125s Aperture: F11 
Posted By: ebojorq, 04-16-2015, 10:20 AM

I love to make this kind of shots where I can play with perspective and patterns. For this, I've found the wide angle lenses to be very well suited for the task, in particular the 28 mm. It was actually a test drive for a "new" Spotmatic I recently bought from a friend. I already had one, but couldn't resist the temptation to get a sister for her.

This was made using Ilford FP4+ shot at 50 ASA. I developed at home with D76 1+1 and scanned in an Epson v600 with SilverFast.

Note: I judged aperture and speed from what I would normally use to get that shot and remembering the day's conditions (based on Sunny 16 rule).

Great texture, fantastic capture. Looks almost surreal.

thanks, everyone!

they're bricks. it's a decorative wall in one of my city's most visited attractions. the wall surrounds an artificial canal that runs through the city's colonial neighborhood.

It was a long walk finding the right curve in the wall to fill the frame and waiting for the right time to get the shadows where I wanted them.

again, thanks for your kind comments!!
