It’s Friday, time for a new pic of the week 🙂 And good news, I’m still in love with black and white street photography:

A group of hungarian students going to the kick off demonstration for the Hungarian Student Days 2015 in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. One of them was quite... sexy ;)

During my lunch break at work I met with a group of hungarian students going to the kick off demonstration for the Hungarian Students Days 2015 in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. One of them was quite… sexy 😉

I really like this portrait. Maybe technically it’s not the best photography I’ve ever taken but it has this power, this dynamic, this contrast… and a guy with a wig, an instant classic 😀 I’m just a bit sad I couldn’t manage to go and take more photos of the Students Days, it is usually pretty fun and quite original.

This photo was processed using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom for the standard workflow and then with Google’s Nik Collection Silver Efex Pro 2.

Five black knights

I crossed this group of black dressed people next to Piata Unirii in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. Just after, having the sidewalk free, they spread in line, and walked like if they were in a movie. I immediately thought of the Nazguls, the infamous black knights (well… kings actually… nevermind) from The Lord of the Rings 😀

This photo has been processed with one of my favorite softwares ever, Google’s Nik Collection Silver Efex Pro, with of course my standard Lightroom workflow.

The book shop, the cross and the umbrellaA woman with a round umbrella in front of a book shop in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

I directly felt that I must take that shot. The strict, straight lines of the windows, of the shelves, of the books, contrast with the woman’s round umbrella and the light bulb. I did a the old black & white post processing with Alien Skin Exposure 7, which is a fantastic tool for film-like processing.

An old man texting.

An old man texting… whomever it could be. Much people said it’s a shame we don’t see his feet. In the contrary, with his trousers high on the waist, he looks like a trunk, as if this man was an old tree in the middle of the fair. The time it took for him to write his message reminds me of that, too 🙂
