Photo of the Month: Jun 2021

I offer this shot of King’s College Chapel for PotM with some trepidation. Firstly because it’s a cliché and secondly because it’s been subject to a lot more post-processing than is my normal practice.

It was a summer’s evening and I’d turned up for an event an hour early so I had the opportunity to just walk around and enjoy Cambridge. I was drawn to this shot by the cows but the shot is really of the chapel.

The photo was taken with my Sony Experia mobile phone, 1/125th at f2.0 and ISO 40 with a focal length of 4.4mm. 

In post-processing I first of all gave it a severe crop and then got rid of some temporary fencing in the foreground. I added a sky with some colour and increased the texture of the buildings. As I said, quite a lot of post-processing. Check out the original.

This is my first phone PotM for some time and you can see its limitations. The lack of resolution is not displeasing but it does look a little more like a painting than a photograph.
