Heritage: Shiva Temple

The weekly theme is ‘heritage’.

The Shiva Temple in Pashupatinath at Kathmandu in Nepal. The complex is one of UNESCO’s world heritage sites.

About the B4 retouch series:
I browsed my archive for pictures to publish. Some of them are partly retouched but most do have scratches, dust and stains.

More Choices (Kathmandu)

Another choice of a street scene in Kathmandu. A choice of framing. Which one do you like best?

The B4 retouch series:
I browsed my archive for pictures to publish in – an originally – small series. That series caught on a bit more than I thought. All of them are not retouched yet. Scratches, dust and stains are not removed.

Monochrome Madness 26 Reeuwijkse Plassen

Leanne Cole is an Australian photographer; each week she organizes a ‘monochrome madness’. The Monochrome Madness Challenge started 26 weeks ago. Its aim is to promote or get more familiar with monochrome photography. Which was of course the standard for years in photography. To celebrate the 26th week the challenge is to publish a color picture that looks like a monochrome picture. After publishing a long string of monochrome photos the last weeks on my blog, I can now publish four color photos! One of them is actually in the MM26. They all are taken at Reeuwijk, and show part of the beautiful Reeuwijkse Plassen. They were taken almost straight into the light of the rising sun, making the colors almost disappear. I tweaked them a bit here and there to get a tat bit more grey in.

B4 Retouch / Monochrome Madness 14 (Nepal Nagarkot)

Leanne Cole is an Australian artist/photographer; on her blog she invites
readers into her world of light and shapes. Each week she organizes a ‘monochrome madness’.

This week entry a photo of a cloudy view on the Himalaya in Nagarkot.
Unfortunately you can’t see the big mountains.
This negative was quite difficult to print in the darkroom.
But digital there is so much more flexibility in getting it presentable.
