superb minimalistic BW - a typical sample of a photographer who has "the eye" - seeing things not everyone sees immediately

Colors are the lack of darkness

I find this a most appealing shot, top marks.

400 has become my default "film" speed, particularly during the dark days of winter. I was using a long, slow lens so this helps keep the shutter speed up. I also read an article about the sensor on the K100 which suggested 400 held the promise of a wider dynamic range than 200, so it's a trade-off in a some senses!
Best wishes,

Late to comment,Andrew, but I like the well depicted soft turns and curves of the railing against the blurred background. Very nice sophisticated design and masterful work! Well seen!
