Hi congratulations for the 4th place finish. It is an interesting street scene with the people and the food on a wagon. Where was it shot? And why was there a need to reverse the lens?
Old dear, the street is actually Hill Street, it runs perpendicular to Coleman Street. The building was once a police station.
Surprised that this photo is not placed higher in the challenge. Looking at the details I see the chromatic aberration has not been corrected. If you have Photoshop it could be fixed quite easily.
Another great old train image.
Congratulations Ruth for the sharp image. You have captured two incisive points. :)
Amazing clarity. Subtle pastel colors. Beautiful light and shadow. What more can be asked. Congratulations for the winner.
108: e-m5 / sigma30 , great combo it seems
Yes, it is especially considering how inexpensive the Sigma lens is.
A great photo of the Milky Way and interesting foreground.
Robert Evagelista: my favorite :)
You were indeed prescient. :)
Very lovely colors.
barb_s: Congratulations on the win.
Thank you very much.
Congrats. Nice gradation of color and shade. Very good atmosphere that makes the pine stand out.
There are reasons to confine to realism and there are also reasons to liberate from realism. Enhancing visibility is one example. If it serves a purpose even pp to the Oort Cloud and back is not too much. For this Challenge there is no processing rule specified. The glass vanes against a bare aluminum on a cloudy day make a very dull picture, so I take the liberty to enhance the image. Thank you for sharing your opinion which is well taken.
Great picture, brings back old memory. Is the shutter speed really set at 38 sec? Wouldn't the smoke be blurry in such a long exposure?
Magnificent and humbling at the same time.
Fantastic, spot on exposure. The lighting is atmospheric and the facial expression captured tops it all. A great picture to wake up to. Congratulation.
Beautiful, nice soft lighting. Like a Vermeer painting.
Green water? Algae?
Singapore Terminal 3.
Amazing, I have yet to see one in nature.
