    Pegelli....is this a recent shot?....do you sitll use the KM 5D now? Interesting that this looks just as good 'on screen' as 20 meg shots. That old Sony 6meg sensor went into so many good cameras and always performed well!

    Thanks, it's a shot from 2009, when I was using the A700 and KM5D "side-by-side" regularly. The camera still gets used by our daughter and by myself occasionaly. AF is slow (but accurate) and operation a bit sluggish versus more recent cameras, but it still delivers fine images. I've made prints up to A3+ with it and no complaints. Using it usually cures me of GAS, so it has saved me tons of money

    Lots of effort went into the C1 processing! This shot simply did not work in colour IMO, so I converted it to mono, first in C1, and then in Pixelmator. One layer atop the other has a layer mask painted to reveal/hide sections to taste, but I had already added some adjustment layers in C1 to brighten the middle-RHS and certain bright linear areas. Photoshop for over twenty years, and C1 and Pixelmator for quite a bit less time; all have a lot to answer for!

    Monochrome conversion adds its own abstraction and hint of nostalgia automatically; the addition of toning and ‘grain’ is in my view mostly unnecessary, and often comes over as a clamorous substitute for good seeing and controlled tonal range. Without the work in C1, this is just another tedious real estate picture. IMO, of course!

    Personnally, I prefer the color version : the warm quality of the few remaining light comes better out.

    Another interesting shot, mediumcool.......

    I did not click 'like' although it's worth much more than a passing glance for a whole raft of reasons in my view. The following just for interest, so please don't take any offence as absolutely none intended...and I would sort of like to have shot this.....suspect I don't have the vision 'tho!

    ....The shopping bag seems to work against the shot, for me anyway!....probably because the atmos is one of brutal detail and reality!......For the same reason the slight out of focus in the distant car etc would work better if sharp, as with the slight softness around the front feet of the shelter..... if these apparently unimportant details were cllinically sharp the whole thing would be even more effective in it's starkness......A tripod possible next time?

    ......Just me so don't fret!

    It’s my shopping bag, and I left it there, out of expediency, but also because it made the shelter seem more ‘occupied’. It’s not by choice, but most of my photography is to do with my daily life and movement—I have no car, but I do have diabetes and osteoarthritis, so mobility is sadly restricted.

    Magnified manual focusing, a great lens/camera combo, and superb technique! What more can I say?

    Quote Originally Posted by Bugleone View Post

    Hand-held wide-open—as described in the info footer—and I found the B/G distracting in that it wasn’t sharp, but it wasn’t particularly soft either (I need a 24mm f/1.2!). In fact, the most time I spent on processing was to create a layer throwing the BG OOF.

    I don’t agree, but your points are thoughtfully made! The front feet I believe are subject to field curvature—if I had noticed, I would have separately over-sharpened the yellow feet, and comped them in in Pixelmator (good snooping BTW!). Also, I had set Sharpness Falloff at full tilt (250%).

    Thanks, Jurgen,

    Certainly from an architectural purist's point of view upright verticals (or vertical uprights!) are better. Whether the resulting image is more powerful I don't know.

    I did a quick vertical perspective adjustment in Photoshop Elements6. The result is just a bit too cramped for me.

    Feel free to post your corrected image if it is much different to mine.

    Thanks for commenting.
