Zyrynometry: Lines & Circles II

Trois Couluers Trilogy: Bleu, Blanc, Rouge.

In memoriam of a brilliant Polish film director Krzysztof Kieslowski, whose movies remain on top of my cinematographic Olympus. He retired after making the trilogy, "to read and smoke" as he put it, only to die shortly after. Damn cigarettes.

Good in B&W...even gooder in colour.

Damn death...
vz-nostalgia: hmmm... I see you like this one better. Maybe I should follow up every b&w with a color version.
Nah, for me these are two different pictures.

Looked at yesterdays shot a few times and now in colour, yesterdays image was far more striking, l find the colour is distracting.
vz-nostalgia: distracting from what, zed? as I mentioned, b&w was all about graphics. This one is more about a flow of color masses, and the lines and circles move to play a secondary role. Two different pictures with two different ideas.
It works well as the colours are so strong, so i like it equally as the mono version.
vz-nostalgia: I guess you like them equally, but for different reasons, Nig. smile

vz-nostalgia: And what kind of melody is that, Ms. Ingrid? smile
Speaking of music, Zbignew Preisner, who scored all Kieslowski's movies, has always been in the shadows, but his music is absolutely essential in these films.
in this picture there is vital energy.
W Kieslowski!
vz-nostalgia: Now you are pumped up, Stef. smile
What do you mean by "W Kieslowski!"?
Great shot, I like it very much!
Ciao smile
vz-nostalgia: Ciao, Frank. smile

Qui, La Bleu-Blanc-Rouge! But I prefer the Black-White one!
vz-nostalgia: That is perfectly fine with me, Ms. Philine. smile
Kieslowski comes pretty well top of my list as well. This is a fine image Victor. richard
vz-nostalgia: apparently, we share the same cinematographic mountain, Richard. smile

Does make a superb tricolour. My favourite is the Double Life of Veronique.

Lovely strong red, but I will stick with the purity of the B&W ;o)
vz-nostalgia: I always had thoughts that the Double Life of Veronique somehow related to the trilogy, a precursor to all three films, like "No one writes to the Colonel" was a precursor to the "One Hundred Years of Solitude", not a magic realism yet, but already not a realism either.

I like this even more Vik
vz-nostalgia: Looks like opinions color vs. b&w had split, Chris. I am not surprised a bit. smile

l agree that they were two different pictures with different ideas, but the style is one that l find difficult to interpret. all l meant by my comment was that as a matter of preference of the two shots l liked the B/W more and the reason was the colour was distracting. more my lack of understanding than any other thing and my inability to express myself. Sorry if l caused any offence
vz-nostalgia: Offence?! You must be kidding! What offence? Not a shred. It's just the way I was thinking about these two pictures. That's how I saw it conceptually, when I looked up in the atrium- two distinctly different pictures of the same thing. I might repeat the process once again with a different subject.
Apparently, teh b&w has strummed the cord with you, and teh color one has not, and that is perfectly fine. smile
love what the colour gives this Victor but i loved the feel of the mono version bettersmile
vz-nostalgia: I'll keep experimenting, Tim. One day you'll like the color version better. smile
I have just seen them....again, and they are great. The picture is a nice tribute - I feel it's the colours from the movie, and that's not bad...there are a lot of different blues and reds...
vz-nostalgia: Aha, I got the bull's eye. Or somewhat close. smile
I need to re-watch them again too. It's been awhile.

I liked seeing both versions of this shot. Although I know color plays a role in shifting focus in a pitcture, but this is a great example. I really like the strong colors,a nd am drawn towards this one more than the mono one.
vz-nostalgia: Have you seen the trilogy, Kelly? If not, I'd highly recommend.

i feel more comfortable with the 'colored' version of this shot...is it a Freudian sign???
'to read, smoke and cough???... wink
vz-nostalgia: LOL Not a shred of Freud in here, Ms. KA. Though, sex played a major role in all three of Kieslowski movies indeed. smile
Strong composition and great colours Viktor
vz-nostalgia: Ha, didn't you know I'm a well known composer in certain circles, Ms. Pam? smile
