Fantastic image here, David. Really well done.
Thanks for the compliment.
Hmm...'OK' but I wouldn't go as far as 'Fantastic'. More of an experiment with an old colour snap - taken 2010 - with the B/W conversion, sepia and added grain effects in Lightroom.
I think what I find fantastic about it is how well the people work within the scene. Over the years I've been rather adverse to having peeps in my photos but I'm coming around to looking for compositions, like this, where people add the critical element of what life is like in that spot.
I've always gone against the grain as far as architectural photography is concerned. I try to include people wherever possible as I like the sense of scale they impart. I've never understood the convention to exclude people. I think it might be an arbitrary convention inherited from the very early days of photography when architecture, still life and landscape were the only subjects possible due to the very long exposure times - any people in shot would never show up in a ten minute exposure.
