Ferryboat Silhouette

Ferryboat Silhouette - Miyajima, Japan

Ferryboat Silhouette – Miyajima, Japan

Today’s photo is sort of a variation on yesterday’s. I’m fairly sure the two figures on the left are the same father and son combo that I featured yesterday. It just goes to show how different two photos can be, even with the same subject shot around the same time.

I actually made this photo a couple of minutes before yesterday’s, using the same Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II and 14-150mm lens. I was on the other side of the ferry and saw a nice silhouette opportunity. The black and white conversion is what really makes this pop. The original color is quite dull, actually. The focal length is different, too — at a 90mm equivalent, instead of yesterday’s wide-angle 28.

Unlike with my PEN-F, I shot this in color with the E-M5 Mark II. I like to think that I’ve become better at visualizing in black and white, even without the aid of a monochrome EVF setting. Alas, I’m not sure. Perhaps it was premeditated or maybe it was just luck.
