I just wanted to share a picture I took on NEX-6 with Canon FD 50mm f/1.4.

It was pp'ed on Lightroom 5.

Appreciate any comments & input.

I like it----very nice composition and model's pose! I would probably just add a tad more contrast and take out the electric wires surrounding the white building.

By any chance, how does it look in color?

Thanks for sharing!

Cheers,

José

Thanks for the comment. Yep, I noticed the wires but too lazy to remove them, :-). Here's the JPEG directly from the camera.

I like the jpeg looks the best , I donĀ“t like the cropped photo, the surrounding and the tree is beautiful no reason to crop

Agreed. Color version is much better.

Thanks! I was just trying to be a little creative and adventurous with the toned b/w version.

It is very fun to play with the manual lens on NEX camera. The focus peaking is certainly a huge help here.

That was my intention originally, not to crop the picture. Somehow, I thought the surrounding was too busy, thus, I made the pic b/w.

Actually the colour version is also my preference. It looks softer yet has more contrast.
