Theatre edgescape towards a deeper blue

Theatre edgescape towards a deeper blueLumix G3 f11 1/800s ISO 400 LEICA DG SUMMILUX 25/F1.4

When I shot this edgescape I had sun glasses on and they are polarised so as I composed the image I was aware of this and just expected the blue to be lighter in the finished image. T’was a real surprize when I downloaded it with the other images shot that day that the skies were as deeper blue as I remembered eventhough the camera had no polariser mounted. I am finding more and more that Panasonic’s Nano coatings are incredibly resistant to flare. I have lenses that if used for this shot would have been flared over with aperture circles scattered about thus changing the image. Sometimes it works like this image of a bromeliad flower┬ámost times its a nuisence.

That led to a greater public awareness which in turn placed pressure on local government to be more critical with the granting demolition requests from developers. The above pic is an example but in this case it is a public building that has been merged a nineteen twenties store front has become a facade for a twenty first century theatre complex…
