Frenchy boy is back. Sorry for you all
wow great eye!
great series willpops...i love the contrast between light and dark on #163. Great work :thumbup:
Yes, 163 for me, as well. But 168 is also excellent in the use of a darker overall tonality combined with strict framing - combining to exude a nice mood.
Thanks for comments, all.
People often tell me that 169 has a good texture, but that it is too blurry, or that the composition is without interest. What do you think about that?
Same about 171 : "there's a message that is not clear". Opinions?
Well, first of all let me tell you that I am yet one more person here who is quite fond of the play of light and shadow in your Photo 163.
Along with that one I also like the next (164) - on its own, and as one that gives context to the other. But also 164 could stand on its own. I like that you left the colours in that one!
And I really like the way you highlighted that absolutely mundane scene in Photo 166. There is so absolutely NOTHING about it, just a backyard and a bike, but your photo makes it all IMPORTANT. Worth the while to stop and frame just this scene. I really like that!!!
As to your questions: I find 169 a bit on the dark side and wonder whether a play with contrasts and a bit of Unsharp Mask could bring it out better? Or are you all against using Photoshop on your photos? There is something there in that frame but it is a bit hidden in the darkness, particularly in the lower right corner. Unless you say this way your very plan, I would wish for a tad more light in that one.
And 171 makes me wonder why the second SORTIE is upside down ... is it a reflection? If so, I can't what it is that reflects the word?
Concerning 169, it is only a come back to a place where i took one of my first "serious" picture. But as i'm experimenting "dark" photos these last days, i pushed the treatment to it's extreme (darkness, principally). Concerning the blurryness, i'm not sure of it's origin, but i think the too violent curves layer "ate" the borders. I'm not really used to use (un)sharpen and such things, so i still do not use them (wow, what a clear sentence...)
"sortie" is a reflection in a "little water lake on the bottom after the rain" (how poetic... but dunno the exact word ).
I especially like 163, 168, 171. And maybe it's a personal impression thing, I don't feel that the images look urban enough to me. Maybe you should continue to show us what's after 171. Glad to see your name again, and keep posting.
...is the perfect definition of a puddle .
I like 164. The old look.
Beautiful series. Can't choose a favourite, I love them all!
