  #233 Repeated Shapes
Entry 1 of 23
   
 
Bench       ©2020 aoc46
Panasonic DC-GX9       1st place, 157 points
1/320s, f22, ISO 1600, 40mm, Aperture Priority, Spot, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Typical RAW conversion adjustments, retouching to minimize trash under the bench. Crop, conversion to b&w, resize.       Extra Info: Besides repeated shapes, this bus-stop bench also provides an optical illusion. If you need orienting, you're looking down at it, with the seat part to the right.

    I wouldn't have guessed that this was your photo, as you don't often use B&W. Excellent shot. Congratulations.

    Congrats for coming out on tip in a field with some good entries. Obviously this had a wider appeal than any of the others.

    Well spotted and great angle. I like the play of light on the seat also.

    A nice flow of shapes. I see what you mean about the optical illusion, although I didn't initially. It's one of those things that just suddenly flips and you see it the other way.

    Makes an attractive pattern and an interesting optical illusion as you said. Well shot too.

    Jade - Guess it's a good thing I didn't shoot a macro of a wavy bit of window screen. ;-)

    Very nice play of light and shadow to create the optical illusion. It was a good choice to use monochrome for effect.

    My first impression was great architectural image. Then I realized it was a bench and the impact notched down a few spots. Still it is a pretty image...I just keep wishing it was an office tower. Top 5

    Now that you mentioned optical illusion, this looks different every time I look at it!! Stark and beautiful, spot on theme.

    Great eye to spot this and well executed - balancing the exposure must have been difficult.

    Great idea and a wonderful eye. This image has a "Stevebee" feel to it, which is a compliment. High in my favs.
