Lady in Red

GXR A12-M, f1.2, 1/125, ISO 2075, RAW, 53mm (Voigtlander Nokton f1.2 35mm)

I liked the way she was standing in front of the bench looking at the bright and empty doorway in the front, I took it in 3:2 format but thought of it as a square picture but was too lazy to change the settings in camera so cropped it afterwards.


  1. Great composition. I wonder why there are metal markers on the concrete bench. Marking your seating place? Or making the design more thrilling.

  2. Thanks for your comment!

    I guess the metal markers are there to mark the seating space but also for design purposes so a bit of both. At least you can't argue with the person sitting next to you about how much space you can take up thanks to the markers ;)

  3. Works well in 1:1 format. Nice kind of 'waiting' mood. Interestingly, I have never used the ricoh square setting mode. I have always cropped at home to 1:1.

  4. Thanks for your comment Bill!

    I do like to use the in-camera 1:1 format at times as it helps with my composition but sometimes it's faster not to worry and just crop afterwards.
