Week 20:Vertigo

ok a little change this week, still experimenting of sorts but not quite to the same extent.

This week  I went to The View from the Shard, a tourist attraction in London’s tallest building on the 69th & above floors.  I thought it would be interesting to see how the Holga copes with the view.

There are many challenges here, not least the general public.  Reflections (as you will see) are your enemy here and you have to find the Windows without the handrails as they reflect also.  Normally a polarising filter would help.

I am pleasantly surprised at the detail it has captured.  I have made some contrast, shadow & highlight adjustments.  Film is Ilford HP5, a film I am liking more & more

No update next week & possibly the week after due to school holidays

Hope you enjoy the images, I LOVE LONDON
