    Nice! Does the GRD have a level indicator like the GRDII and GX200? Are you using it when you shoot?

    Thanks! Sadly neither the GRD nor the GX100 has the level indicator. One must just pay attention when shooting

    Re: Pedestrian

    i'd love to see this in b/w -- the structure is strong enough to take it and i find the colour detracts....

    Re: Pedestrian

    Charley thanks so much
    Cam, I tried it in B&W. Sadly no matter what I did because the pedestrian's partly in the trees shadow he blends into the wall, almost getting lost

    That is my best effort

    Re: Pedestrian

    beat me to it, bob -- thank you!

    (admittedly, i would have played with the levels and curves as well to get all the variations in the brick -- i am such a nerd!)

    Re: Pedestrian

    yes, it needs some curve work, but I think this conveys the idea.

    Re: Pedestrian

    Still, in the end, had I got there a couple of seconds earlier it would have been far better.
    And MUCH easier.
    He would not have been half in that shadow.

    Re: Pedestrian

    Bob, well done. However if one modifies an image that much, where does it cease being a photo, a record of the what I saw and felt?
    IMHO, if I have to go that far then I ought not to show the image

    Re: Pedestrian

    It becomes somewhere between a photograph and a painting.
    Since i used to do a lot of watercolor, I have no problem with that as long as there is no "photo journalistic" pretext.

    I cannot disagree with you on that Bob. Even back in film we cropped, dodged and burned. Where is the objective reality in that? So I cannot wail at manipulations of any kind. In truth the original version was rotated and cropped since I had to get the GRD out, turned on, set and shoot very fast to catch this. I am surprised it came out so sharp!
    In the end, for me and the limits I set for myself, I prefer this version.

    It comes closest to what I saw and felt at the time. The evening light was glorious, the red of the brick at that place called to me, as ever, like a wonderful canvas on which to create and there was finally someone walking there!

    Re: Pedestrian

    i disagree about the timing. it works because he is lost in the shadows.... lost but still seen. it makes it mysterious.
