Daily Inspiration #345 by Adrian

Dear Steve,

I have been visiting Berlin two weeks ago, amazing city! All fotos where shot with a SONY Nex 5n.

When you come to Berlin have a walk in the area of “Prenzlauer Berg”, I’m shure you’ll find some inspiration too.

First foto: SONY Nex 5n, E18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OSS, ISO 200, 49mm, f/5, 1/80 and Silver Efex Pro2

Second foto: SONY Nex 5n, E18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OSS, ISO 100, 36mm, f/11, 1/100 and Silver Efex Pro2

Third foto: SONY Nex 5n, E18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OSS, ISO 100, 18mm, f/4,5, 1/180 and Silver Efex Pro2

Best regards



  1. Always appreciate seeing the 5-N used in different ways and contexts. Really enjoyed these pictures, hope to see Berlin one day. Thanks!

  2. Thanks all for sharing and your nice words! I’ve send the colored ones to Steve, maybe he will add them.

    Many regards!

  3. Adrian, thank you for sharing these awesome street art images! I really like them and you capture it very beautiful!!

  4. I had quite a few beers rather around the corner from the middle picture, I forget the exact name… but such an easy chill place to enjoy, so I did. East Berlin has that spirit all over the place…
    Pictures that bring back memories… intentions well accomplished, Adrian 🙂

  5. I did not used HDR, just did some correction with Aperture and then I made the finish with Silver efex.
    I also love the colored ones, but I loved in Berlin especially this kind of contrast and reduction.

    • Hi Adrian,

      Wonderful pictures. I’m always impressed when a good eye is combined with contrasty B&W shots.

      I wanted to ask – is Silver Efex Pro 2 a plug in or is it a standalone software package?

  6. For my tastes, B/W works best with shape, form and contrast. Here, I feel these images simply cry out for colour. IMHO.

  7. Very nice B&W images, am I correct that some HDR was used ? If yes, well done if no then even better

    • It doesn’t look like HDR to me. I own a 5n and it’s quite capable of producing stunning B&W images like these, converted from raw.
