From the castle they gaze into the sun

“Fränkische Silhouetten” – Olympus OM-D E-M1   29mm  1/250 sec @ f / 9 and ISO 200

Tourists and Nurembergians enjoying some warming rays of a soft February sun on the ramparts of Nuremberg’s Imperial Castle (Burgfreiung der Kaiserburg). The silhouettes caught my eye as I was roaming around the castle grounds. Even though the shot was taken as a crisp color-shot at ISO 200 I already hat a B&W conversion in mind as this is just the right way of showing silhouettes. Applying the VSCO 05 Kodak BW400CN preset I not only converted the image to black and white but I also introduced some visible noise in the sky, as the emulated B&W film runs on ISO 400. But this is what I intended when replaying the scene while doing the post processing in Lightroom, as the light and textures in the sky were incredibly soft and this is what I feel the conversion to an analog film style brings out in this image. Comments welcome! Everyone enjoy a great weekend.
