  1. Even though the shadows are quite small in the frame here, they stand out well and the picture works very nicely. It takes a pretty low sun to fire shadows at that angle, and in Berlin in March it can take plenty of patience to see any kind of sun at all, so well done for being there at just the right time. The humans in this scene stand out because their natural forms contrast with the strong hard lines and right angles of the building, and the shadows on the wall contrast with the ridged grid pattern of the tiles. It’s a great angle too and very carefully composed – a great job.

    Nice shot and congratulation on 2nd place. The lower contrast processing than is more often employed with mono has given it a rather gentile appearance, reminiscent of a 1950’s public information film, possibly informing us of the modern delights of suburban life in the new town of Milton Keynes. As it is, it’s modern Berlin, rebuilt for slightly different reasons.

    Nice shot and congrats on second place. It has lightness and softness about it due to the lower levels of contrast that we usually see being used in mono shots. It has the air of 1960’s public information film about it, possibly informing us of the modern suburban lifestyle of the new inhabitants of Milton Keyes.

      Obviously I thought I’d lost my first attempted comment in the ether……and then it suddenly re-appears out of the blue. Take your pick.
