I’m only looking

Silent Virtue

Silent Virtue | Nuremberg | 2016

Detail of a bronzen face on Nuremberg’s Fountain of Virtue (Tugendbrunnen) created by Bendikt Wurzelbauer in the years 1584-1589, situated next to the North Tower of St. Lorenz  Church.

It was a conscious try at a high key photo with a very narrow depth of field to fully blur out the passing shoppers. I dialed in 2/3 of a stop positive exposure compensation. Image taken with the Olympus PEN-F with the mZuiko 17mm f/1.8 prime lens at 1/250 sec, f/3.5 and ISO 200. There is this rumor that mirrorless cameras can’t create a decent bokeh…

Have a great day!

  1. Love the blurred background and I always think they leave some mystery behind. Something left to the imagination and your own interpretation which gives the viewer some control over what they want to see. Beautiful

  2. Never saw one of the faces so close, thank you very much. I like the fountain and to tell stories about the virtues. These winter days, the fountain is packed in a wooden shelter to protect it from frost and ice, and I am looking forward to the re-opening in spring time.
