GRD, f2.4, 1/60, ISO 400, RAW, 21mm

Since I was not happy with the few other pictures I took today, I thought I share my portrait. Who says a 21mm lens can't do portraits ;). Image is slightly cropped, I used selective coloring for the eye and increased the contrast a bit.

The Rear Window

GRD, f5.6, 1/25, ISO 64, RAW, 21mm

Took this during my lunchbreak after ordering the GT-1 40mm teleconverter lens for the GRD.
I like these destroyed churches that you can find in the City and serve as gardens. Makes for a much nicer experience and don't feel as cold and dark as normal churches. Have more a feel of a Temple or Shrine. Would like to see more churches being turned into gardens.

Portwey and The Wharf

GRD, f2.4, 1/13, ISO 1600, JPG b&w, 21mm

This is my attempt at taking a different picture of Canary Wharf. Where you usually have nice colorful pictures with all the lights I deliberately took a dark picture in b&w at ISO1600 to give as much grain as possible. Maybe not a great image but I hope it's at least different.

Took today during my lunchbreak, planned it without the pigeon but with it it's much better.

Lonely Bike

GRD, f2.4, 1/5, ISO 200, RAW

Todays picture has been taken on my way home at the Lewisham Hospital. I really liked the light when I walked past and had to take a picture.

Abstract Light

GRD, f2.4, 1/2, ISO 200, RAW, 21mm

This picture has the levels slightly modified and I used some noise reduction to smoothen it a bit more. The colors are all straight from the camera using manual white balance.

Through the Looking Glass

GRD, f2.4, 1/5, ISO 64, JPG

A bit late today and with an improvised image. A look through my Yashica RF viewfinder on my Ricoh GR1.

I like b&w images but I screwed up the compsition a bit on this one.

2nd Day, 2 pictures

First day, first picture

GRD, f4, 1sec, ISO 100, JPG

This is the first picture and although not that interesting I quite like the result. The original idea was different but it did not turn out as expected so I might retry it at a later time.
