Out again with the GF1+20mm today and these are the 3 images I like the most.
Oh I love that first one!
And I love the borders
I am glad you like the borders as many others have said they find them too distracting.
I find these borders add impact to the dark contrasty image and help make them look weathered (no pun intended).
I like these borders too. I also think your forth bridge shot would benefit from a plain white border rather than the antique look. For me , I always saw the border first before the bridge.
Forgive me. I also love the landscapes within the white borders.
Excellent images as usual . Top shots .
Thanks for posting .
I like the first one. The other two don't do a lot for me, I guess I'm just missing the point :smile:.
gorgeous shots. the first one is perfect!
What was your PP technique for these? Silver EFX? How'd you do the borders?
It may seem a bit odd that I say this. The moodiness depicted in those images is a rather refreshing departure from the deafening sea of stucco, palm trees, sunshine, and expensive European autos rampant in what is typical of Southern California.
Borders are fine. I like #1.
Thanks for the great feedback folks.
I decided a while back to shoot my current GF1 images on the 20mm and convert to B&W so it would add mood and atmosphere rather than have the colours draw the eye.
Silver Efex Pro2 has an option for border types/toning/vignette that are all user changeable - a great software package.
