It is a new season at my local camera club and this is the image I will enter in the Monochrome Print section of the first competition.
It is called ‘The Cell’ and is the work of the Italian artist Gianpietro Carlesso. It forms part of the Art on the mountain installation set on the slopes of the Schmittenhohe in Zell am See.
It represents a cell at the moment 0f division as a source of the origins of life in the water.
I have converted the image to monochrome in Photoshop and adjusted the levels. Otherwise it is as shot by the camera.
Being a bit of a technophobe, I am not really into image manipulation and still look back fondly to the happy hours I spent in the darkroom.
The judge will probably think it is too traditional and not edgy enough but I know what I like!.
