Nobody Else

Posted on Fri 5th May, 2006, 12:29pm

ISO: 100, Shutter speed: 1/80, Aperture: f/4,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: None,
Lens: Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L, Focal length: 35mm,
Captured: 29th April 2006, 10:47am,

This was one of the first shots I took while out with Arkady last weekend. He's already posted his version, which he took like a true professional - ie he stole the shot over my shoulder ;)

I'm rather happy with this one, truth be told. The only thing I don't like is that the guy appears to have a glow around him, like the paving stones get brighter near him. I thought it might be as a result of the processing but I went back and carefully corrected any masks so it's not that. Anyway, I still like it.

You have captured a nice moment there. The processing looks spot on and has a nice soft feel to it. I like the way he is sitting facing away from the table.

OAPs have a glow around them - I know 'cos I have one too. A great composition and the toning is spot on for this. Nice shadow detail on the left to lift and give some contrast.

I actually prefer your shot, lovely processing. Very nice work jamey.

Its better composed and framed by you the shot, but his shot has a bit more sharpness to it and a nicer colour balance to me... i.m.o.

Jim, Fri 5th May, 2006, 4:42pm
Mmm, I prefer your version too... mostly because the colors are more fittingly depressing, and the other shot has a massive expanse to the left which you have nicely cropped out. One of my fav's on here to be honest, nicely done.

I'm disappointed none of you noticed the menu on the table. I used many ingenious new skills (learnt courtesy of Blatner & Fraser's book) to get that to stop being overexposed.

Nice job on not overexposing the menu mate! Jokes aside, I really like this one. I feel like a broken record with your photos but Its hard to find one I don't like. Fav element of this shot is the colouring, the greys/blues really suit the image.

I noticed the menu but £4.99 for a latte....

Nice capture, and good processing as usual.

if something does its job good then you shouldn't notice it! great work,

Love the perspective and the posture of the man. Your processing gives the image an atmosphere that is very fitting for the subject.

I clearly prefer your version, the cropping is intelligent, the image is very powerful. I don't see any glow around the man. You have taken out one or two chairs, I don't think they would bother the feeling of loneliness. The postprocessing is elaborate, the tones though look a bit dull for me, too uniform. Great work.

Jamey, Wed 10th May, 2006, 10:32pm
It wasn't so much that the chairs were crowding the frame. More that the tops were out of shot, leaving two vertical lines that drew the eye away from the main subject and out of the frame. If there had been any effective way to remove them with cropping, I would have done, believe me. I hate cloning stuff. It always takes me ages.
