Laszlo Perlaky – Window Pour Off

Photographer Laszlo Perlaky
Title Window Pour Off
Category Gold B&W
Location Big Bend NP, TX
Reason For Making the Image

Window is a special water pour off place at the end of the Windows Canyon at the Chisos Mountains in Big Bend NP, TX. The view through the window rock to another window-like freestanding split rock is spectacular. I liked the rock textures on the sides of the window contrasting the shiny water smoothened surface on its bottom mimicking running water, and the textured split rock opened the view to the far distance.

Dwight Theall – Floor in Florence

Photographer Dwight Theall
Title Floor in Florence
Category Gold Color
Location Florence, Italy
Reason For Making the Image The patterns of the inlaid marble floor in the Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Flower (more commonly known as “the Duomo”) in Florence, Italy are incredible.  I wanted to emphasize the sense of depth and perspective in this circular basketweave section of the floor.  The legs and feet of the visitor in the upper left portion of the image provide both a sense of scale and the only hint that the rest of the image is a simple, straightforward view of the flat plane of a floor.  (In order to avoid image noise, I rarely use ISO 3200, but in this case it allowed me to avoid camera shake and hand-hold the camera with a 1/60th second shutter speed.)
Camera Canon 60D
Lens Canon 18-135mm at 18mm
f-stop f/3.5
Shutter Speed 1/60
ISO 3200
