A dash of smartphone photography for your perusal today.
The light was stunning on this crisp December day, crystal clear and casting characteristic winter shadows. I had arrived at Birmingham in a high-rise car park and was stopped by the view. My mobile phone provided the tool to take advantage of the scene.
I converted the file to black and white in Lightroom and made a few modest tonal adjustments. I added the black border to stop the lighter edge tones from getting lost. The shape of the striding man in the middle puts me in mind of Louis Daguerre's photograph Boulevard du Temple of 1838, which is often cited as the first ever photograph to contain human beings.
