Photo Challenge At Canary Wharf

This time Jena set the challenge. A maximum of 30 photos, using any lens we want, but using the B+W Art Filter on our EM-5s.The great thing about this high contrast filter, apart from rendering appealing SOOC JPEGs, is that it breaks everything down into its constituent shapes and form. This forces us to think more fundamentally about our compositions, so that we apply the basic principles of shape, form, light and shadow. Inevitable, this leads to (hopefully) stronger and bolder  compositions, irrespective of what we might actually be shooting. Most of these are SOOC JPEGs, but in some cases, I processed the RAW file that the EM-5 saves alongside each JPEG into B+W. Jaguar were kind enough to leave us some cars to play with, leading to lots of reflection and abstraction possibilities. Incidentally, I had previously done a photo challenge in this location last year. I find these kinds of challenges to be a useful exercise, as because they force me to take my time and think about 'seeing', hopefully producing fewer but better shots.
