Working with the new camera body (Fujifilm X-T3) and new lens, Fujinon 56mm f/1.2.
Low ISO 80, 56mm, f/1.2 and shutter speed auto to adapt to the settings:1/950s.

Nothing much to critique Erik. Maybe a touch more headroom for me but that’s minor. Very nice b&w conversion and great detail from the new gear. I’m curious about where the halo/glow around the back of her head/hair came from. Fuji certainly is making some great equipment and in the hands of someone who knows what to do with it, it shows!

Thank you Rob.
Just bear in mind, this is JPG. I do not have a raw converter for this camera yet. Should be available in a couple of weeks,

Even more impressive Erik.

I really like it, Erik, but find the highlights very distracting. If it were me I would clone from the one good window to use to make the others the same.

Eric, Your subject has plenty of contrast so I actually like the highlighted windows in the background. However, I would darken the bright spot in the left foreground.

This is a really good looking black and white image, and yes, I can feel the morning coffee mood for sure, thanks for sharing with us Mate.
Maybe the only thing I could suggest (for the future since this could be the original crop) is to remember to leave some space between the subject’s head and the edge of the frame. On this one, that particular composition makes her feel to cramped to the edge.

Hi Erik, I really like the image and like other members have said, the only suggestion I have is to have more headroom and some more room on the right 🙂

Thank you all for the comments.
I agree with the headroom although, if I look at the image bigger, I actually like the very little headroom. (but it should be a hair more. Pun intended). Frederico, you are right, this is the original shot, no cropping.
I cloned out the white spot Lenny, thx, and replaced the image on Flickr, so here it is again.

What I cannot figure out in the first picture is why there is a halo of light that effects the blinds lighting at the back of her head. It is distracting to me. Beyond that, this is a crisp, well composed picture with a nice dynamic range of light.

I had the same question Diane. The same issue exists on the hair under her chin.
- October 26, 2018 at 4:26 pm #371986
Diane, Rob, it must be the blind behind her. I have no other explanation. It is not oversharpened (I did not sharpen it at all since it is JPG from the camera).
I am not so bothered by it. Sorry you are.
- October 26, 2018 at 4:29 pm #371988
Not bothered Erik…just curious.

For some reason the first two images did not show up. The 3rd one did.
Very much worth waiting for.
My OCD doesnt’t like the piece of fence that is at 45 degrees in near left foreground, when all the other fence tops are vertical. But it doesn’t detract unless you look for it.
I wouldn’t mention it but it’s the tank, and I had to find something to critique!

Chris, Thanks. I do not know why it does not show anymore. But If you click on the photo anyway it will show in Flickr.
Rob, I do not get email notifications (at any post) and I have checked the box notify me….
