This shot of the monorail station at Sydney’s Darling Harbour was taken on the Easter weekend.
It’s almost a true monochrome, but the geometrical aspect was the thing I really wanted to portray, with the curve of the track, the many clearly-defined arcs of the cylindrical station, the strong rectangles of the supporting concrete on the right and of course the squares and rectangles of the apartment building on the left.
To me, the central element was of course the single track of the monorail, so its curve (as well as the interesting pattern on its underside) really dictated the tight composition.
I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F8, 1/90 sec, ISO 400, focal length 68mm.
