Re: IRAN, as seen with E-M5 Dramatic Tone and Monotone (IMGS)

I have been back home for a few days after 15 truly wonderful days in Iran.

Impressive landscapes, beautiful cities and most importantly: friendly and hospitable people.

We had prepared with a bit of basic farsi/persian, and that was the best move ever.

In the coming weeks I will be processing a truckload of images, to result in multiple galleries.

For now, I'll just share some B&Ws that I already converted in-camera while still there.

Useful to get a quick first impression of what B&W could look like later.

I've done a few slight LR tweaks on the OOC JPGs.  More subtle work (and colour) will come later.

Quick gallery of those first impressions is here:

Some samples:

Night train Tehran-Shiraz (µFT Oly 45mm at F1.8)

Shiraz, courtyard of Imamzadeh-ye Ali Ebn-e Hamze  (µFT Oly 40-150mm)

Shiraz, outside Arg-e Karim Khan (with uncharacteristic rain for this southern city) (µFT Oly 12-40mm)

Entrance portal of the Caravanserai of Meybod (near Yazd) (Rokinon 7.5mm FE)

Grab shot through the windshield of our car on the road from Yazd to Isfahan (µFT Oly 40-150, S priority)

Portal of Masjed-e Shah (Imam) in Isfahan (µFT Oly 12-40mm)

Dry Zayandeh river in Isfahan and Si-O Seh bridge (Rokinon 7.5mm FE)

our guide Zahra in the Caravanserai Marenjab near Kashan (µFT Oly 45mm at F1.8 around sunset)

Masjed-e Agha Bozorg in Kashan (µFT Oly 12-40mm)

a foreign delegation (I understood: from Iraq) on pilgrimage in Qom (Rokinon 7.5mm FE)

Thank you for looking. Comments welcome.

Kheyli mamnoun!
