MM 2 – 52: Closeup

Leanne Cole has chosen Closeup to be the theme for this week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge which also happens to be the final week of the second year of this challenge.  For my entry this week I have decided to submit a closeup of one of the stained glass windows in Gaudi’s Church of the Twisted Columns in Colonia Güell just outside Barcelona.

This closeup of one of the stained glass windows in the Church of the Twisted Columns (also known as Gaudi's Crypt)  with the cross motif on the right, the shards of mosaic tiles known as trencadis on the left and a metal mesh made from discarded needles from Güell's cotton mill covering the window. Many of the needles are reflected in the stained glass, emphasizing the space between them.

Congratulations to Leanne for reaching her two-year milestone! I have missed a week here and there over the last two years but have enjoyed experimenting with monochrome once a week. I have used either Adobe Lightroom or Nik Silver Efex Pro or a combination of both programs in these experiments and have learned a lot about both of these software products.

Don’t forget to wander over to Leanne’s website this week to see how other photographers have interpreted the closeup theme. Leanne also mentioned having the number two as a sub theme but I forgot all about that. Let’s see how many photographers used both themes.
