RD1s, f0.0, 1/5, ISO 1600, RAW - Taken 12/11/2009

I was not very inspired today. I took a few pictures but deleted all of them, there was nothing I really liked or wanted to keep.
Instead I went through some of my pictures to find some pictures to use as examples for my upcoming workshop. I came across this picture that I really liked when I took it and although it is not perfectly in focus or very sharp, I wanted to process it a bit and see what I can get out of it. It also remind me of a picture from Robert Frank's "The Americans" book which I had a look at recently.


  1. I like the shadows and the mood

  2. What is f 0.0 mean? I like the natural posting, shadow and highlight, wall texture and yes it remind me of Robert Frank" America". Excellent.

  3. What a fantastic ambience and composition. A wonderful shot.

  4. Thanks for your comments!

    This was a picture I took in Cuba and always wanted to revisit and edit so it was good to come across it again.

    Muddy, f0.0 just means I can't remember the aperture I used but it was probably f1.4 or f2.8 deppending on the lens on the RD1s.
