  #110 Fading away
Entry 5 of 21
   
 
Abandoned and fading away       ©2011 Ronoz
Panasonic DMC-L10       5th place, 124 points
1/200s, f6.3, ISO 400, 66mm, Manual, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Cropped, USM applied, extra mid tone contrast       Extra Info: Alternate view of the main entry, trying to highlight the rusty roof , collapsing structure and grass growing out of control, what was once the home and pride of place to a family has been overtaken by time. Her son lives next door in the "new" house in the back-ground and the grand-sons are down the road each in a house of their own time, but for the old place its time has passed ....

    - even if I cropped right up to the right edge of the old porch, there was still the roofline in the background & I felt that cropping too much off didn't look quite right to me. Thx Ronoz

    Great use of black and white here. Clarity and texture is excellent. I question why you included the new house in the background though. (Please tell us!) I think the picture of the old house alone could have stood on its own without that contrast.

In this photo of a structure, you have captured the sadness of the fading away of someone's life. I can imagine the time they spent keeping nature at bay. But in the end, mankind fades away, and nature takes its course. Great job!

    - thx for the comments, of course it is a shame that the old place is being let go, but I guess it just wasn't suitable to be modernised..as for the film grain, there were no scene menu's required , it is courtesy of the "famous" panny sensor in my L10 ! ;0)

    Whenever I see a place like this, I always take a moment to remember that this was once someone's pride and joy; and wonder how it might have looked in its prime. Nice take on the challenge.

    Good working of the theme. Colour would not have been an option for this shot. Have you got film grain in the scene menu? That's is this is later versionon a pany.
