RIP • a monochrome session

4 months 2 weeks ago #676742 by Nikon Shooter
Two photo clubs joined in to visit the city's anglican cemetery
early morning, a very challenging monochrome type of shoot.

Trying to see only luminance and ignoring chrominance is not
a common thing to do in every day life. Furthermore, story tel-
ling and composition must be in as well.

This is interesting but I don't know what to feel about this shot.

"I don't know" is waaaay better than "I don't feel", Rohan.

It is a cultural thing, as you may guess. In western cultures, all about
the way death is dealt with is cultural… and emotional too.

Some folks were buried here quite some time ago and somebody is
motivated to bring flowers after so many years, even in winter. This
is pretty much what I got of the scene and was enough to shoot it.

What ever you did here, cool stuff.  The petals look velvet'y.  I like the look of this.  Old school.

Thank you, Gerry! :P

No applied special effect, just tonal taming and,
upon conversion to B&W, a sepia toning rendition.
