City Abstracts - Cincinnati

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by gnagel, Aug 10, 2018.

  1. While walking around downtown Cincinnati, I captured the following city abstracts. I know this kind of photography doesn't appeal to everyone.

    NIKON D850    ---    70mm    f/9.0    1/15s    ISO 64

    NIKON D850    ---    125mm    f/9.0    1/125s    ISO 64

    NIKON D850    ---    105mm    f/10.0    1/25s    ISO 64

    NIKON D850    ---    200mm    f/9.0    1/10s    ISO 64

    NIKON D850    ---    135mm    f/8.0    1/80s    ISO 64

    NIKON D850    ---    150mm    f/9.0    1/13s    ISO 64

    NIKON D850    ---    145mm    f/8.0    1/25s    ISO 64

    NIKON D850    ---    102mm    f/9.0    1/13s    ISO 64

    Thanks for looking...
  2. I like the abstract characteristic that you mentioned. Did you by any chance consider the first and last one as monochromes?

    I like them. You've got a great eye for this type of photography Glenn.
  4. Thanks Mike...I had not considered it, but now that you mention it...:) 
    Thanks Rick...I enjoy lines and colors!

    What an eye you have! #3, 6 and 7 are my favs!
  6. They are as good as any I've seen, natural or built environment. I don't have the patience for what you do, so keep them coming--I live vicariously on your work.
  7. Thanks Karen...much appreciated!
    Thank you, Nick...and I must admit that my patience gets tested every now and then!

    I've said it before - you truly have an eye, Glenn. All of these appeal to me. Well spotted and shot!
  9. Thanks Lyndee...much appreciated!

  10. Yes Glenn, you see images where most of us don’t.
  11. nice work. Would be interesting if you could get some folks on all or most of the balconies in 6. Would give a lived in feel. #3 and #7 are my favs
  12. Thanks for the kind words, Allan
    Yes...it would have made those shots more interesting if some people would have been on the balconies. #3, by the way, is the headquarter's building for Macy's.

  13. Great talented eye Glenn, all are super.
  14. Excellent Glenn. You have certainly shown us all how to do it behind the lens and in the subsequent processing steps. Love the verticals, balance and patterns. Well done.
  15. Thanks Louie...I appreciate the input. I wasn't sure that these pictures would be appealing to very many people.
    Thanks Gordon...I really enjoy viewing the lines, patterns and colors. Sometimes those things matter the most (more than the actual subject matter) to me when composing the frame.

  16. I love the geometry - nicely shot!
  17. Very interesting set Glenn, thanks for sharing. I agree with Mike about the B&W conversions.
  18. Thanks Ted
    Thank you, Binnur
