I think I like Lenny’s processing a little better. I think this is because I find the ‘brightness’ of the truck in the reflection to be over powering and draws my eyes there to much. That is also added to by the direction the mom/daughter are looking (to the reflection).
With that said… I believe that – reversing – the image will help. As a…[Read more]
In cases like these images — don’t let the camera make “all” the decisions —.
Judging by the combined and various shutter speeds, f-stops, aanndd ISO settings, the camera is making a lot of the decisions for you. Looking at the EXIF, the camera is set to ‘aperture priority’… and that the camera also selects the ISO in this mode (judging by…[Read more]
Wow!… 1065 down to 28! That’s some serious eye strain and mental fatigue Craig. I usually get stuck keeping too many images that are similar (but different enough to be a good picture). I think my end count is usually around 10% (so in this case… around 100 images). Congrats on being able to ‘cull’ that many images.
If you’re using LR and…[Read more]
I actually prefer using this method… but not for how the article implies it should be used.
I believe to get the silky water you were looking for — with this type of water — you probably should have used a longer shutter speed (1/2, 1/4, etc.). The longer shutter speed would have given more movement in each frame… But with that said… if…[Read more]
I’ve only just started to use my phone lately (as I’ve just purchased a relatively new one)…. I was always surprised to see the overall quality of the images they take, especially when I’m having difficulties in some situations getting a decent image with my other cameras. I’m guessing it’s mainly due to the automatic settings the phone us…[Read more]
I guess it all depends on what story you’re trying to tell Petr.
My preference is the ‘original’ image as the wider perspective brings into play the surroundings the man is in as well as emphasizes the loneliness better.
While to some, the tighter crop looks better, it doesn’t provide the ‘loneliness’… only a man taking a break on a…[Read more]
And this is looking back behind me… you can see the glow of the sunlight and the thin shaft of the shadow that I am in… OK.. the image wants to rotate 90 degrees to the left, but you get the idea.
A series of three (3) images are SOOC and taken with the Samsung A505W….
The Golden Hour… (is one step to the left [or right])….
Photo taken while my face and phone are in the shadow of a pole.
Thanx to all for taking the time to both view and comment on the image. And thanx Robert for making it a ‘challenge’… Looks like I’ll have to go through my archives and see what I have.
What captured my interest most about the image was the ‘Wet Floor’ sign sitting by the urinals. And then combine the discoloration from the years of service…[Read more]
