    Great shots, you have a good eye for composition. I find a lot of street style photography too random and haphazard. The good ones are taken in that perfect moment when everything comes together, a split second moment most people won't even notice. Thanks for sharing.

    Come on

    Great, glad you are now begrudgingly on board :smile:

    How about sharing some of your images with us all on this site, love to see what images you shoot.

    Lol. Funny guy… :D

    I do share my shots. There are many images of mine here around.
    You only need to search topics I started.
    But believe me, they are not worthy, and guess what: some are even criticized!!
    :)

    great to see your works Ian. I love the third one.

    but are B&W and GX1 what you're only working on, or are there some different system and type we can see from your other images?

    I absolutely love the first two pictures,...
    great composition, good moment captured, good background,
    and last but not least...very nice post processing.

    how do you process it (if you don't mind sharing)?

    In lots of tutorials, the general objective is to make the main object stand out through some forms of dodge and burn at selective areas. But your images has everything sort of "plastered" or blended in,...yet still looks very nice.

    Processing

    The way I get my conversions and bring back colours is by shooting in Raw, editing firstly in Lightroom3.4 (got it free with GX1), I then save as 16bit and open in photoshop where I open Silver Efex Plugin and convert to B&W, it has an option to bring back selected colour.

    The conversion creates layers that when brought back into PS need to be merged down and final image changed back to 8bit and saved as tiff before resizing and saving a JPEG version.

    This system works for me but is very much a personal choice and there are many other options / choices / software available to get the same end results.

    There are 2 links below that take you to my blogsites where there are images taken with formats from full frame to compacts with APSC and micro 4/3 in between.

    Hope the explanation helps and the links to the photos give an insight into equipment and images.
