    something about a particular life

    Thanks for the heads up about the GXR strap, Godfrey ~ mine came yesterday and I like it a lot.

    It's late and I'm going to bed without processing anything more, but here's my latest offering to be ready to share.

    (I'm happy to have any comments, too.)

    Cheers ~ and good night!

    Re: Ricoh GXR - Show your images

    Thanks Keith!

    I like your shot of the marsh, but the rendering is way too documentarian and plain to my eye. The lower foreground is too dark relative to the center and upper sky area, there's little to draw my eye to a resting point. I look at this and wonder what drew your eye to the scene, why you took the moment to make the photograph.

    I'd suggest some further development of the rendering ... shape and focus the light to tell us what your eye saw by illuminating the important points and de-emphasizing what is less important.

    LOL! Sorry if I'm critiquing a little more strongly than I usually do. I have been thinking about the process of teaching people how to see a photo and do a critique, what constitutes constructive criticism, quite a lot in the past couple of days. :-)

    Re: Ricoh GXR - Show your images

    Thanks for the comments Godfrey:

    I agree with what you are saying, but the trouble is, there is no focus point for what I am trying to convey in the picture. I am fascinated by the incredible textures an multiplicity of the grasses in this marsh - so really my focus is in 3/4 of the image (I cropped the sky out) You could really say that the river and the trees are just there to act as a resting point for the viewer from the panorama of grass.

    Here is an even more defined example of what I am trying to do (again, the P10)

    I'm really enjoying seeing your work and comments, Keith and Godfrey ~ I look for them just about every time I boot up. Haven't had time to digest the latest, except to say I'm intrigued, and more power, insight, light and luck to all of us!

    Did manage to make one of my own yesterday, though. It was nice in "Basic Green," but I prefer it in black and white, as any form it might have is clearer to me that way.

    And all the best ~

    Re: Ricoh GXR - Show your images

    Godfrey - I like communicating 52, and 54 is great (if a little glib), not so convinced by 53 (Gombei isn't enough is it?). The cucumbers are dense and concentrated and work really well.

    Keith - my everyday walk is through the marshes at the moment (I think it's really difficult) - I agree with Godfrey about the first marsh shot - I think the second one is much better, but still slightly lacking in the killer punch. What I've learned is that you really do have to have compositional structure, there isn't an option - if you don't, however good the light might be, and however well you might have processed and taken the shot, it still won't really work. Marshland photography is really a challenge - it all 'feels' so lovely, but actually grabbing that feeling is really tricky.

    Hey - this isn't my thread, I don't have this camera, I'm rudely butting in . . .but there were pictures I really like, and more to the point there are real comments rather than the normal congratulations (I plead guilty) which don't help any of us!

    sagar - the iPhone and fingers shot is just the ticket . . . splendid

    Re: Ricoh GXR - Show your images

    Thank you, Keith!

    One back from the last ... "Communicating #53" ... was somewhat surprising to me. I'd been shooting in abysmal light the evening before, doing "high texture" b&w work using ISO 3200, and I'd forgotten to reset the ISO control to something more reasonable. I made this photo in quite normal light at ISO 3200 and was pleasantly surprised to see that it could render so cleanly.

    This is a 1:1 detail concentrating on the focus plane line of his fingers and beard:


    The only smoothing/noise reduction implemented was all inside Lightroom using the standard Detail panel tools, and it was done pretty lightly. That's pretty darn good for ISO 3200, IMO. :-)

    lol ... I like any and all commentary, Jono. As long as it isn't delivered rudely. ;-) ;-)

    Thanks for the comments and compliment!

    I've been thinking about cloning the "Gombei" sign out of the background on that one. I think it is somewhat distracting ... What's important to me are the expressions and body language of the two principle figures for the purposes of the series.

    i'm not sure #53 will make the cut when I do a final sort, grade and assembly of the project. I'm up to about 60-70 candidates in this series (yes, there are several I haven't finished rendering as yet) and it will likely take a bit of curating/culling before I'm done. My plan is to keep shooting on it through the year and then produce a complete set in some form (book, pdf, exhibit, etc) next year.

    Hi Jono

    It's appropriate that you chimed in, because I predict that sometime in 2012 (or even ealier) you will have a GXR - if they get the m-mount right

    Ontario marshes are tricky, because they are a bit boring. Here is a more interesting marsh, the Everglades. Not taken with a GXR/P10, but the nearest thing you can get to it, the GX-200

    I took "Gombei" out, and I do think it strengthens the photo to be without it:


    Any thoughts?

    Keith,

    Thanks for your comment on the Communicating #53 re-do. :-)

    I like the industrial architecture shot, although the tree on the left does distract a bit. The color palette seems slightly subdued, was that intentional or just an artifact of the web JPEG?

    Hi Godfrey

    It is a single image HDR and I deliberately went for the flat color kind of look. It was actually taken in very early spring and in evening sun. I notice that I am tending to move toward lower saturation a lot these days - this maybe a result of dabbling around with the single image HDR process. After I've tone mapped this tends to be the result, but I think I like it.

    I really like this kind of stuff, Keith, and you've done a marvelous job with it. I agree that it's reminiscent of Dali, but it's certainly capable of standing on it's own.

    I do like the toned down Lakeshore Blvd. bus stop, too, though, so maybebe developing catholic tastes....

    Here are a couple of my own rather different recent ones. The second is a drive by shooting that I think hit the target, but I since like shiny things enough that I'm considering *Madcap Morning Magpie* for a new moniker, I may have been overly influenced by cheap thrills!

    And have you, yourself, considered the no doubt as yet unspoken for *Tin Woodmancy?*

    I can't get my head around #1 , but I love the truck. It comes out a titch dark on my monitor. Have you tried it in black and white? I would crop out the overhead wire.

    Woodmancy is of my wife's father's three christian names and is his paternal grandmother's maiden name. OK in the eighteen hundreds, but not sure I would name my kid that today

    Re: Ricoh GXR - Show your images

    Godfrey's communication series has inspired me to do one myself. I'm calling it "Infrastructure" and it consists of images taken at my condo in Toronto. I'm fascinated by the robotic looking boxes on the top of buildings that keep everyone inside hot or cold depending on the season. There are also masts, towers, dishes, stairwells etc that provide a wonderful source of abstraction - especially with black and white images.

    This one is "Infrastructure #1" Ricoh GXR with P10 lensor

    Re: Ricoh GXR - Show your images

    Hi, Everybody.

    No problems today beyond a bit of operator error and not being able to see what was going on via either the rear LCD or the add on optical finder. That's nothing new, but today proved to be a tipping point. The last straw was discovering that I'd missed recording a number of family photos in the morning sunlight because it was too bright to read the camera's warnings that it had begun writing files to the internal memory and I needed to put in a new card!

    Id sorta relied on being able to fake the framing, but this afternoon I finally bit the bullet and ordered the electronic viewfinder that I should have bothered with a long time ago.

    I did get some keepers, though, and here's one from twenty minutes or so ago. I don't know how well this will read on your monitors, as it's the first one I've posted from my own uncalibrated five year old laptop. It looks a bit dark on mine, but I hope that will show up as appropriate on yours.

    Do, please, let me know if looks okay.

    Thanks and Cheers,

    Thomas

    A bit underexposed and thus very grainy, but otherwise it looks like the camera is working fine.

    Re: Ricoh GXR - Show your images

    Godfrey: #55 is very, very good

    I like the vertical aspect ratio and the composition dividing the image into two, down the middle. The top, with the horizontal and verticals is a bit Mondrian, and is countered by the diagonals in the tiles below.
    Topped off by the subject, which is a winner. As always, the color is nice.

    Looking at this one, I think I overated your banana a bit, but hey, different genres

    Re: Ricoh GXR - Show your images

    Getting reacquainted with Ricoh again after giving up my old GRD to my daughter 5 years ago. The new GXR has a familiar feel and the controls are just where I expected to find them. Waiting for the M module to arrive so I can use my old collection of CV lenses. Using the A12 28 module for now and thoroughly enjoying the experience.

    That's an interesting shot ... Not sure about the rendering, seems a little too hot in center and a little too deep on the bottom, but I think I see what you're going for.

    Carl,

    Yes indeed! The GXR + A12 28mm is a delightful wide setup. That's one reason that if the A12 Camera Mount isn't at its best with the ultra short focal lengths, I won't mind *that* much. My initial kit is going to be 28 and 50 mm lenses (42 + 75 EFL) for it, complementing the two current A12 camera units. I might also add 40 and 75 mm focal lengths (60 + 112 EFL) if it works out well. Getting something in the area of a 20mm focal length would be great but is not so critical as I have other options in that ultra-wide range and I don't use it all that often.

    Leaf On Stone Wall


    Ricoh GXR + A12 28mm f/2.5
    ISO 209 @ f/8 @ 1/30 second

    A return to another type of subject matter I like a lot: some still life. This looks better at a much larger size than I can display on line, best in a print, but I thought you might enjoy it.

    Thanks for looking, comments appreciated as always.

    Carl - lovely image.

    I'm glad you have the GXR, you certainly know how to get really excellent stuff out of a variety of cameras. Looking forward to some comparisons from you

    Godfrey, this one was taken at the long end of the P10 zoom and had some noise, which meant normal rendering would not work. I wanted to highlight the juxta position of the rooftop garden and the towers. I tried to balance off the white and black top and bottom

    I'm staying with square format black and white for all of this series. I really like working like that

    I like the square format BW notion ... that's cool.
    I might have rendered that one just a little differently but eh? personal taste.

    Godfrey, Very nice fine detail and lighting in your leaf image.

    Keith, Thank you. Your work with the GXR tempted me to give it a try. A lovely little camera that I'm looking forward to using more and exploring it's capabilities.

    Welcome, Carl! It's good to see more people appreciating this great camera!

    Good stuff with that P10, Keith; I think it's admirable that you're making the most of the subjects you actually have a lot of!

    I see your leaf as becoming one with the wall that is already visible through it, Godfrey ~ to me, it really conveys the natural "recycling project" always going on all around us.

    I'm a bit far from home for a while (though someone's looking after the house for us, so I can say so on the net) and I've got lots of nice new sights to photograph but not very much to work on them with. (Did I hear someone say, ("Just use your eyes to begin with, and that'll take you pretty far along the right way!?")

    Here's a minimally processed picture part way between the two of you: an abandoned factory in a mid-western town that used to have a lot of manufacturing and now has a little more decay than they'd like....

    all the best,

    Tom

    There's an interesting quality to the light and color in this one, Tom.
    I like it, I'm not entirely sure why just yet. I'll have to spend some time looking at it. :-)

    I like "decaying leaf", Godfrey. Works well in black and white

    I get the urge to crop it down 20%, cutting out the right hand mortar line, putting more emphasis on the leaf. I love the way the stalk of the leaf crosses from one brick to the other.

    Keith
