Capturing the mundane to create interesting stories

Shrine at Yamato-shi

Shrine-DSC 6345-martosc-s

Calming place with shady trees



Walking around the neighborhood, I just realize an area that I haven’t explore yet. There’s not many people around, so it’s a bit hard to make Street Photography with people as the main focal point.

Not really sure I can call this landscape photography, but I guess this one(s) can pass as Urban Photography.


Anyway, here is the same place from the opposite angle

    • Yes, it is very calming. If it’s very close by, I might go there everyday.

  2. Pewarnaan gambarnya aslikah?
    Kalau bukan, pengen tahu apakah jika dengan warna asli bisa menampilkan suasana tenang seperti ketika dibuat dengan warna di atas.

    Tapi kalau yang di atas asli, keren pisan berarti. Adem. :-D

    • Hah? Definisi lo tentang pewarnaan itu asli atau enggak itu bagaimana, Benx?

      Pemandangan aslinya ya berwarna. Saya melihatnya berwarna, dan kamera juga melihatnya berwarna (karena sensor digitalnya bisa menangkap warna, bukan menggunakan film hitam-putih).

      Saya agak bingung dengan pertanyaan elo :D…

      Mungkin maksud pertanyaannya adalah apakah ini hasil re-touch. Kalau benar begitu, berarti bisa saya simpulkan Benx ini masih belum paham cara kerja kamera :D…

        Benar, kan Saya awam sekali dengan kamera. :-)
        Maksud Saya kan si daun-daun itu berwarna hijau sebenarnya, bukan? Nah apakah dengan melihat aslinya akan merasakan ketenangan yang sama dengan versi hasil kamera ini. :-)

        • Menurut saya sih iya; tempatnya tenang dan sepi. Enak untuk tidur siang, di bawah pohon rindang sambil dihembusi angin sepoi-sepoi :D…

  3. Yup, it leans towards urban photography but remember, street photography doesn’t necessarily need people. The absence of people in some cases is equally as important.

    Out of the two, I prefer the second best.

    • Thanks for the comment, Christakis. I like the second photo, too… If only it wasn’t backlighting, I would put it as the main photo :D…

  4. Second photo is the best. Great light, great contrast! Well done!

    May 16, 2011 at 21:35

    • So, two people like second photo better than the first… maybe I should reverse the order :D…

      Thanks, Helder :-)

  5. The opposite angle has a dramatic feel, more impact. I like it very much!

    • Thanks for the kind words, Damien.

      So, now, there are three people who like the second photo better than the first.

      I should have reverse the order :D…
