WIRR 2018, April Week 4

I like the geometry present in this image — the four bands of increasing brightness that radiate out from the lower right-hand corner, offset with the white circular light and the starkly edged numbers. It was a shot on a walk around Fort Collins and became my favorite image of the week.


Fujifilm X-T2, Fujinon XF 60mm f/2.4 R Macro, f/2.8 at 1/680, ISO 200.

Digital Darkroom. I started with a black-and-white conversion using the Fujifilm Acros emulation. From there, I increased the exposure by almost a stop, tweaked contrast and whites up, and pumped up the clarity. 

WIRR stands for Weekly Image Rich Ruh. This regular feature on Das Has von Ruh will show and describe my favorite photo created during this weekly period. My weeks start on Mondays, as does the WIRR. I’m hoping to include commentary on the story, the setting, the specs, or the sentiments, depending on the circumstances.
