The Unknown Cyclist

Posted on Tue 3rd Jan, 2006, 6:07pm

ISO: 100, Shutter speed: 1/125, Aperture: f/3.2,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: 2:1,
Lens: Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 EX DC, Focal length: 50mm,
Captured: 17th October 2005, 2:27pm,

I'm not going to make any secret of the fact that I wanted the processing on this picture to be as much like a Chromasia photo as possible. I love the soft yet detailed look he manages to achieve and I thought I'd have a stab at copying it.

I clearly don't have the same mastery that he has but I'm still quite proud of the processing here. Everything I deliberately changed worked out how I intended, which is a feat in itself. I think overall I've probably squeezed the best possible 'print' out of the RAW file.

Would be interested to get some feedback on whether you think it's better/different to my normal processing and if so why. Thank you.

PS I ought to mention that the sign on the bike is an advert for www.unknowncivilian.co.uk. Thanks to them for supplying a bike to photograph :)

Nice! I like it, has a very fairy tale look to it... mind explaining the process in the trickery forum :)

I wonder how they're gonna get home on those flat tyres!

I guess they'll just have to pump pump pump pump it up.

Great photo. makes the bike actually look good! There is bad news though. some muppet (12 year old kid or council employees) has stolen/removed this bike. can they please return it to its original position. the bike is not in the way and it is in use so no one has the right to remove it. thanks
