Competition: Mono (Print and Digital)

Time for my image selection for the Mono competition.

I was looking to get a couple of images printed, but I’ll rely on my store of prints as I’m probably pushing it to get anything sorted for next weeks deadline for prints.

First up are my digital entries:

The following image is a panoramic of 3 images taken handheld with my X-Pro2.  The mono works better than the colour (handy for this comp) and the fact it’s fairly clear of people is a bonus.

Fujifilm X-Pro2 – XF18-55mmF2.8-4 R LM OIS ƒ/5.6 18mm 1/320 ISO200

The Selfridges image is a a quick shot taken on my lunchtime walks around Birmingham.   This was a quick grab shot of the usual Birmingham landmark, but with a different focal point.    I was looking to get a silver print of this, but I don’t think I’d have the time to get it in for the competition – so it’s a digital for now.

Fujifilm X-E3 XF14mmF2.8 R ƒ/10.0 – 1/100 – iso200

And for my print entries…..

I love the seaside and I especially love long exposures.   Out of all my silver effect prints this one has been my favourite.

Fujifilm X-Pro2 – XF18-55mmF2.8-4 R LM OIS – ƒ/11.0 – 18mm – 30 Seconds – iso200

Another one from my lunchtime walks – I’m not sure what a judge will think of the bit of nature poking it’s way in on the bottom right – we’ll see.   And if it’s mentioned then maybe an edit and reprint might be an option for the 4th quarterly.   Maybe a subtle title like ‘Nature vs Architecture’ will sway it

Fujifilm X-E3 – XF27mmF2.8 -ƒ/8.0 – 1/320 – iso200

Both prints are sliver based ones – The may make a re-appearance for the final round of the quarterly competition.
