    Re: Street (images thread)

    Jack,
    Of course I have to go against the grain on this one....here's why...
    In the B&W version, the shapes are FLAT...not tonally but dimensionally.
    There is almost no eye travel....
    The color version sports good eye travel because the red of the bag repeats against the background signs and more importantly against the (Irritant) the shape on his hat.

    The shape on the top of the rolled bag has a similar shape to the mans head and shoulder....in the B&W, this shape competes too much to the point of neutrality....

    Because of the primary colors.....he is separated nicely from the background....
    Notice the B&W version is flat...not tonally again but dimensionally.....

    Well, that's about it.....I am a B&W shooter almost 99 1/2% of the time but sometimes Mother Color has a sense of humor......

    Re: Street (images thread)

    I might suggest lightening the shadowed part of the face a tad in the B&W version (which I prefer). Very nice capture though, Jack. I might also try desaturating the red of the bag in the color shot.

    Cheers,

    Good points all --- and why I am conflicted and posted both versions. Push to shove, I still prefer the B&W, but do like the jeans and skintone in the color version...

    Re: Street (images thread)

    I think Streetshooter has some valid observations about how the colour works in this one. Diane's comment about the distracting background is also true, however. I'd be sorely tempted to cheat and to add some blur to the background.
    Best regards,
    John.

    Re: Street (images thread)

    Hi,

    I've been very much enjoying the work of all photographers in this topic.
    Personally, I just can't convince myself to go photographing people on the streets anymore.

    Many years ago, while at an evening school in photography, we had a portfolio to shoot about "market places", so I went to the central market in Brussels on a sunday morning (very busy day) to do my homework.
    While shooting just some very innocent pics of a sales guy selling fruit, I was (not very gently) tapped on the shoulder, and told to leave asap, and he added "sale belge" ...
    Later, I heard about several similar incidents !

    I wonder, do you people ever get into trouble by shooting police officers, "clochards", people from racial minorities ... ?

    C U,

    Cheat? I'd never call this cheating! Painters have been readjusting composition for example, since time immemorial. If that's the way you want to portray it - go for it, I say.
    In this image, a grab shot with the lens' diaphragm initially closed down, blurring unwanted subject matter after the fact is paramount in my opinion:

    No worries in the Hague as well.



    but things of this sort are tricky.



    Mr. "Manager", sensed the camera and took off quickly.

    Mostly it is routine emission tests.

    I agree, though not everyone does. I've met some interesting "purists" over the years, and while I don't necessarily follow their lead, what they do and what they say about it has at times caused me to reflect. (Of course, I'm talking about individuals who have a commendable body of work to show, not blowhards and wingnuts).

    One excellent photographer I met (whose name I forget -- this is about 35 years ago) would not crop any image. When he printed, he printed the edge of the negative frame as well. It was a discipline thing for him. So I gave it a try -- by which I mean that I paid MUCH more attention to framing and composition for the next few months. While I do crop freely, I'm still quite particular about my framing when shooting (and therefore much slower and "deliberate" than other photographers). The great ones can do this much more quickly, of course.

    BTW, there are some very good compositions showing up in the thread!
    Best regards,
    John.

    Great photos Rick. I especially like the dynamic balance in this one. The back lighting in that persons hair and his legs dissolving in shadow anchor the photo like a spike, offsetting the vector of the train. Thanks for posting. Cheers.

    Regardless of the image rendition debates (of Mandler) design, would you be shocked to know a proposal that he chose flat surfaced elements because it was cheaper?

    Summicron-R 50/2 has many flat (or nearly flat) surfaces compared to a 50/1.4 Takumar. On axis the Summicron tops 160 lp/mm but also has a lot of mush giving the distinctive look.

    Mandler- God of Leica glass. May be.

    Kevin, Do you want to try a Navitron (I will have to shave off a bit of the rear barrel of the second- new in the box sample- to fit a m4/3rds camera)?

    vivek

    have both the 50 R summicron and the takumar... will try them out back to back.

    Not sure whether discussing shaving a bit off the rear is the kind of conversation 2 adult males should be having here or indeed anywhere public :-)

    Thanks for the navitron offer... maybe in the new year... got too many other lenses to try ...


    cheers

    No need to read the manual - but check the sensor often, if you change lenses a lot. I needed 50$ of little swabs to get mine in shape.

    Canon S90
    Do tell Keith. Had my eye on this one for a while - I've had a G9 for a time and still like it, however all the rave reviews have got me wondering about this little fella; I'd much rather someone who can use a camera gives me his opinion on whether it's worth a try.
    Also, if I may; I've had a look at the pdf manual and can't see if it's got an inbuilt Neutral Density Filter like my G9 and the G6 I had before this one or whether it's a "G" thing and Canon hasn't bothered with it on the S90. Thanks.

    As usual, you are too far ahead of me in the technology!

    I don't use neutral density filters so I don't go look for them. I had a G9, now have a G10, but I don't use it. I'm selling it. I have all the Ricoh cameras (GX,GRD,) and I love them. But the S90 is 20% smaller than the GRD2, and it has a stepped zoom. The control ring around the lens is great. Image quality is better than the Ricohs.

    I would guess that the neutral density filter is not there. There is only one custom setting, which pee'd me off.

    Brian, I like the framing.

    While playing with the contrast, I pay attention to the sharpening to avoid the jaggies. Also, I like to level the horizon if it wasn't shot to be level to begin with.

    Thanks Keith. It's the higher ISO usability that attracts most of us to this camera I guess.

    Meanwhile - a "Street" image:
