Don't often shoot still life shots, but seeing the scene below got me to snap some frames anyway. I took the photo on my holiday. We (my family and me) were exploring the Market Dome of Centerparcs (De Vossemeren, if you're interested) and came accross a cosy restaurant. There were plants and a fence between myself and the table and both are visible in the shot. Still, I kinda like the shot and thought I'd share.

Image
(or slightly larger)

EXIF: f/2.8 | 1/4000 sec. | ISO 1600 | 200mm

Did a bit of post processing as well. The usual levels and curves, conversion to B/W with some colour adjustments in the process. Added a Warming filter to give it a better atmosphere to match the restaurant. Oh, and it's slightly cropped for better composition.

Please add comments, questions, remarks, feedback etc. to help me improve my photography! Thanks!

Well the conversion to black and white really makes this photo great !
I really like ur chosen composition.

I see some noise, but that doesn't bother me, i think it gives the photo an "old" look.

U should do more still life :)

Thanks mate. The noise is intentional, why else would I use a high ISO setting combined with a shutterspeed of 1/4000th...

Bjorn that Monochrome Shots looks good to me & adding some noise detail quite acceptable for this type of monochrome shots.
