    With nothing much else to do the youth in the slums surrounding Lagos sniff glue and smoke pot most of the day. This fella seemed to think he was about 10 years old.

    Thanks. This one has grown on me. It does sort of illustrate that it's possible get away with iso1600, if the exposure is perfect, and with some local PP to deal with the noise in large deep shadow areas (which I personally don't like).

    Stunning one. In addition, the feeling that you're in a completely different environment and state of mind than most of us posting here, is hubmling.

    Re: Shadow and light

    well thank you my friend. i thought the shadows and the lightbulb? was kind of humorous when put next to all the natural light and shadow combos.

    if the photo could be thought of as "humorous".

    i think a lot of the photographs in this thread are very, very good.
    the dustbin? loooove it!
    the crazy things hanging from the roof? and museum bench? loooove it!
    red suitcase? smashing!

    Thanks Lili! Glad you like it. That one is rapidly becoming one of my favorites.

    102 is 38.9C !!! But then don't you expect that in Dallas?

    It's pretty funny here that like 30-31 is considered a massive heatwave, and a tiny bit of snow in the winter brings the city to a halt.

    We had one day last summer here that got to 46c. Adelaide has never seen snow though, not that I can recall.

    Thumbs up Great thread!

    Will .. great idea for an image theme! I'm seeing some very creative use of light and shadow; it's impossible to pick a favourite. Kudos to all who have posted an image!

    Perhaps this question belongs in the Digital Processing Forum but I'll ask it here anyway. I see beautiful contrasty images and I'm wondering if most of you process 2 versions of your work ... one for website viewing and another for printing? I find if I tweak contrast to look good on a website, the image is invariably far too contrasty for printing. My monitor is calibrated and I'm printing on an Epson R2400. Anyone with similar experiences?

    Oh .. and here's one more shadow and light image for this thread, again with the D-lux 4:

    Re: Shadow and light

    I process for screen then add a layer group for the paper I intend to print on.
    The layer group containd the adjustments necessary to get the soft proof to match the screen version.

    You now have me curious about your workflow, Bob. If you're using an adjustment layer suited to your paper, at what point are you saving your jpegs intended for upload? I don't see a way around 2 saved versions of the same image (not necessarily a bad thing).

    Re: Shadow and light

    I just turn off the visibility of the print adjustment layer group then convert to jpeg
    (flatten layers, re-size in steps to final, convert mode to 8-bit, convert to sRGB) then saveAs jpeg.
    Nope, I don't save a separate version usually, except for my gallery prints which get saved as sized for finished print dimensions and paper layer group made visible before flattening.
