Pic(k) of the week 48: Hard night in Madrid?
Once in a while a bunch of images do not get processed straight away. This was the case with a group of photographs I made on a brief visit to Madrid, Spain over a month ago...
As often is the case, while shooting, I felt that a lot of them would be turned into Black and Whites. Using the dark blue sky with a red or orange filter (using Silver Efex Pro) I feel like Ansel Adams! Click here to view my Madrid images.
My Pic(k) of the week above, of three sleeping guys, was secretly shot in a park near Plaza Espagna, Madrid. I believe that the harsh contrast between the dark shadows and the bright sunlight breaking through the tree branches, makes for a nice Black & White photograph.
Just as I framed a third image of the scene, the center guy woke up and did not look happy!
Time to move on...
Not sure if they really were recovering from a hangover, but it kind of felt like it to me!
