Briefly, this morning, the sun came out and created a 'warm atmoshere' which immediately went on sale at Cafe 51.

Art lovers II

 

After a bit of playing around, I decided that I preferred this black and white version of 'Art lovers'. After all, it was the black of her hair and clothing, contrasting with the white of the gallery, that caught my eye. I did, however, retain the soft focus 'glow' of the colour version and the white vignette. Camera and exposure details as for the colour version.

Art lovers

 

Canon A590 IS, ISO 400, f5, 1/92 sec, 118mm efl, Capture NX2

The gallery is white, she was all in black, the contrast was stiking, the opportunity fleeting.

Taken this afternoon at a rather overcast Woodend Beach - the bright colours made up for the lack of sun. There is another picture; "One life to guard" in the "Phoxford Gallery"

We can work it out

 

Nikon D80, ISO 200, f2.8, 1/350 sec, 75mm efl, Capture NX2

I took this one last month; last night I saw another picture in it and reworked it to focus attention on the hands and the eyes - looking down and looking up.

Morning walk

It makes me smile to select a 'filter' during digital post processing called, in this case, "bleach bypass". Especially as I
can remember bypassing the bleach process when we still used chemicals in a darkroom. Then it was a bit of a hit or
miss afair; would you get the effect you were after, and if not what could you do about it? Now I can tweak the
settings in software until its just the way I want it and there's no bleach to bypass at all! That's progress, I guess.
