A good example on the use of perspective and repetition as photographic elements. And the tiled floor adds something as well.

Yes, monks fighting with nuns maybe. Or at least hobby actors desperatly trying to show some ancient drama and bore school kids to death. Maybe lions would be a good idea.

Thank you AN IOLAR (THE EAGLE) for your comment.

Greetings from Germany (where the hordes of people with long beards lived),

Hi Carsten

You have a great collection, I really like the monochrome buidlings. This image has wonderful texture and lighting - as Snemann says, the repeition is good too, and draws you in to the image.

Hi Matthew, thank you for your comment on my picture. I am glad you like it, it was taken on an ISO 400 colour negativ film. I don't know why this picture has this resolution without gariny structure and others also scanned don't.

Greetings from Germany,

Carsten

Excellent photo, Carsten, and now I hope to see more of yours on various forums.

Greetings, Marilyn

Hi Marilyn, thank you very much. It is strange that this photo works. I used a ISO 400 colour film. I scanned it and turned it into B/W. It is not working with other pictures. I don't know why. I just had this photo in the forum for about 5 minutes. You are fast.

Greetings,

Carsten

I'm fast because Xenia mentioned that the two of you had figured out how to post the one I suggested. When I went to the forum to see it, I noticed that you'd done more! It's mysterious that this worked and others didn't, but I'm very glad that this one worked. It's an outstanding shot!

Greetings, Marilyn

Hi Marilyn, thank you for pushing Xenia (and indirectly me too) into the forum thing. I am amazed by the variety.

Greetings,

Carsten

I'm glad you've discovered that, Carsten. I find that it stimulates me to new ways of thinking about pictures I've already posted, and also about ones I've taken but not posted, and new ones I might take! Greetings again, Marilyn

Hi Paul, thank you very much for your comment on my picture. I still have a red, green and yellow filter for my analog Ricoh. I still use my Ricoh today but of course mainly the digital Canon. But right now I can combine filters with my software to create B/W in every possible way. So my darkroom is in a box stored. But I am scanning my pictures because I don't want to loose them. And I am very cautious in working on my pictures in general. I want them to look as natural as possible.

Greetings,

Carsten

Thank you very much C.e.C.v for your nice comment on my picture. You can see this arch in colour. I just made two shots in different formats. Thank you for watching it.

Nun wurde ich doch neugierig auf die SW-Variante. Und - auch wenn bei der Color-Version die Steine lebendiger wirken: Die Struktur gefällt mir hier besser, vor allem aber der Bildschnitt. Das Foto vermittelt noch mehr Tiefe. Von den beiden mein Favorit ;-) Grüße Nordfan
