Angel

On Halloween, I went for some spooky shots to Brompton Cemetery, one of the Magnificent seven cemeteries in London. Though really cold, the weather was nice enough to allow for a walk, and provided some excellent opportunities for moody images.

This is a shot of one of the numerous angel statues in the cemetery, using a 50mm f1.8 wide open for nice soft background, manual exposure and focus.

Steampunk bed

Last month I used one of my free days in London to pay a visit to the steampunk exhibit at the Kew Bridge Steam Museum. In one of the rooms there was this wonderfully weird piece of furniture.

The whole setting, with the extremely bright lights coming from the window and the deep dark shadows under the bed, plus the textured velvety covers, was crying for some hdr treatment.
