"Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst" – Henri Cartier-Bresson

Slow Motion

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Motion.”

It is a bit cliche but the London Eye is still an interesting structure. Most photographs of it are the traditional shot from the side trying to fit the whole wheel in. I took a different approach. Looking from underneath and then turning the image into a monochrome to capitlise on the contrast between the deep blue sky I was lucky to have on this day and the white frame of the eye. When photographing in black and white it is important to look for contrasts. Not just black on white or vice a versa but general light to dark / dark to light and also contrasting textures. I hope you like it. If so, I would love to hear from you.
