Mono Inspirations Winner: Paul Basel

Cleveland, Ohio, USA
Canon 70D, Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L, f/4.5, 1/250sec, ISO 100

This capture was taken in Cleveland, Ohio's downtown area. My wife and I were in the city for a night of no kids or responsibilities! So, what better things to do than walk the alleyways and streets and take in the surrounding sites.

The downtown is not too far from Cleveland Hopkins International Airport so the air traffic around the city is pretty consistent – the amount of planes coming in for landings and departures are constant – which thankfully for me I think makes this picture.

The day was fairly gloomy so the original colored image looked really bland. After some Adobe Lightroom edits to black and white, the drama in this image changed immensely and really made this capture so much better! The perfect story of right place at the right time!

We wish to congratulate this month’s 'Monochromatic Inspirations' winner. This lovely picture can be viewed in High Definition in the latest issue of the magazine
