An experiment in contrast

Too much of a good thing?




This Monochrome concept came from Aileni at The Monochrome Weekly

No, it works.

Aileni said...

I agree, it is splendid.

Kitty said...

I like it! I also like all the "action"/detail in the woodwork.

Tunes Photo said...

Flotte kontraster. Det ser nesten amerikansk ut?

Lene said...

Kan man virkelig få to much of a good thing? Hmmm - tidligere har mitt motto vært "less is more". Men nå har jeg blitt voksen og fått næringsvett. Jeg vet å ta for meg - og to much of a good thing is just enough :) I love this picture :)

Ha en strålende dag i vest, Rune.

...og nå begynner lysta til litt nettfotomoro å melde seg igjen, selv om studiene krever sitt av min "gamle" hjerne. Deilig med litt annet å tenke på en bare oppgaveskriving og :)

Ha fin dag.

Tanja said...

Love it, hvor er dette ? flott bruk av linjer

Sylvia said...

I love wooden constructions. The crossed logs and boards have a very softening tone. The light effect on the right is amazing.

I think it looks pretty good to me.

Elisabeth said...

Love the wood, the angles and how one is led into the image.

Kenobiitti said...

Taht's one Great shot.
Congrats.

Vi har også stengt hytta i dag, men den er mindre enn det monsteret du viser her

VALKYRIEN said...

Flotte linjer og bruk av lyset, liker personen som bryter det hele litt ned. Veldig tøft synes jeg!

Anne Lyken-Garner said...

I enjoyed looking at your work. You have some really beautiful pictures here.

James said...

I'm a photo rookie, but I know what I like and this is nice to look at.

Anne said...

Just love the light in this picture .-)

Danton said...

Very effective.

Gallow said...

I like this photo. My favorite part is the ceiling. I like the shadows on the wood, and the transitions of the light. Great job.

Lucy Corrander said...

Oh, this kind of photograph is horribly difficult to take.

You ask for comments . . . I wonder if having even stronger contrasts would have made it more exciting?

Though the clever thing here is that one can see all parts of the structure - so as an illustration of the bridge (bridge?) it is fine.

Bother. Now I'll keep thinking about it!

~Just me again~ said...

Very nice shot!

Carver said...

I think it's a fantastic shot and a wonderful study in contrasts.

Della said...

Spännande!

Tyra in Vaxholm said...

I like it too, jag är bara lite mer nyfiken på människan i bilden.

Ha en trevlig vecka

Petunia said...

Synes det var fint, jeg:)

John said...

Flott komponert og fin fin dybde. Passet også meget bra i s/h.

imac said...

You really know how to get it right Rune, its magic.

ElinSire said...

Jeg syns det var kjempebra! Liker litt kontraster jeg da...

Pacey said...

It's perfect for me...awesome effect.

christina said...

Häftigt foto med alla linjer och ljuskontraster!

Digital Flower Pictures said...

Looks just about right. You handles the highlights very well.

Nina said...

Härligt djup!

lynnwiles said...

I like the light bisecting the person, it takes one a second to adjust eyes to reality.

Dimple said...

I like the building very much, and I think the contrasts are perfect, but there is something jarring about the figure. Maybe you did it on purpose.
Any way, I didn't even see the person at first, and then I saw a blob of undefined something, until after looking for a few moments I realized it was a person. And the person, except for the legs, breaks the flow of the picture for me...
After looking again, I think it is the plaid on the jacket which is bothering me.

Dina ... UK said...

It is splended, love the sunlight on half of the person.....

Mona Sweden said...

Jag gillar det! Supersnyggt.

Tom said...

I'm not 'clued up' on such terms Rune... all I can go by is if I like a shot or not... and as I keep coming back here theres your answer... I love it to bits man... :O)

GMG said...

Hi Rune!
Stunning! You got it perfectly, as always...

Blogtrotter is now at an old spa in Turkey. Enjoy and have a great week!

Unseen Rajasthan said...

Beautiful and lovely shots !! Nice post..Unseen Rajasthan

AKO said...

Jag tycker inte att du har för starka kontraster, tycker att de är på en bra nivå. Kanske bara att du har lagt på aningen för mycket skärpa bara. Bilden som helhet gillar jag och jag blir nyfiken på var tjejen befinner sig och vart hon är på väg.

Bengbeng said...

a successful experiment although i think the person is unnecessary as a focus

Daryl said...

Too much? No, I'd say just right

PERBS said...

It is intriguing because the more I look at it, the more I see. I especially love how the window light is reflected on the side baords and the PERSON too! I like the arch reflection at the back also or maybe that is an exit with sunshining in? There's jsut so much to see which makes it interesting.

I don't know how I got behind reading your blogs but I have left a comment on everything after your benches today.

Nydia said...

Just perfect, even the girl matches the contrast.

Kisses from Nydia.

Ida said...

Flott komposisjon, Rune!
Akkurat passelig av alt. ;)

Minner meg om en av mine favorittfilmer (bøker),
"Broene i Madison County."

Jeg har blogget igjen i dag.
Er nok ikke den ivrigste for tiden på den fronten, men men.
Jeg får ta det som det kommer... ;)
Det er visst enten eller med meg.
Ingen mellomting... Hehe.

Håper at du har det fint for tiden,
og at du får knipset mange bilder i det fine været om dagene.
Det er meldt fint ut denne uken.
Herlig! :)

Regina said...

Great lines and angles. Wonderful capture!

Dagrun said...

Trodde du det var for mye? Ikke i det hele tatt etter min smak. Helt strålende! Motiv og kontrast (og dybde).

@nemonen said...

Riktigt fräck bild. Snyggt!

Phoenix C. said...

It's interesting how you can see the figure and then kind of not see the figure, which becomes as if part of the pattern. Really interesting!

Prospero said...

Never too much or a good thing, Rune.
There's no need to second-guess yourself. If it works - it works.

AVCr8teur said...

I like the patterns of the wood and the bright straight line contrast of sunshine onto the wood.

Mojo said...

Hardly too much! This is marvelous. And a very tricky shot with all that variation in lighting too. Getting the detail in the shadow without losing it in the highlights is quite a balancing act. Well done!

Sistertex said...

I like it!
