My first hour with the EP-3 at the Hampden Fair in Baltimore, MD
The 2nd one is really powerful.
Hey Lew, funny meeting you here.
I'm still digging #2.
#1 is growing on me though.
Thanks for sharing, what lens did you use and are these out of the camera or post processed?
These are with the kit lens (20-42) but I'm ordering the 20 mm tomorrow.
#1 is just cropped.
#2 is PPed to correct some of the lighting and contrast issues that Nature did badly.
I wish I knew the couple; they probably would like a copy
I thought I'd spend some time with grownups here.
Great photos Lewis. Were they shot in RAW, B&W JPG, or color JPG then converted to B&W?
No. 2 is a very striking, story telling pic. Great!
The more unimportant parts look like softly 'wiped' in order to avoid disturbance.....
BTW: When Ricoh introduced the promotion together with Michel Comte I learned the 'small sensor strategy' : shooting wide wide open to avoid too much sharpness in background. Easy.....
Let me guess......DPReview forum or Talk Photography!
No 1 is a good picture, No 2 is a great picture. :smile:
the 2nd shot is really special. nice work
There does seem to be a much more civil discourse here.
Nope. It's a place that is now run over by kidz, it seems. Once it was a really good photo forum.
I need to check my options, I'm not getting notice of these responses and so I'm being rude.
Thank you very much. These were shot in raw and I used a PS bw layer to convert.
SilverBullet is absolutely on-target.
I masked the couple and 'lens-blurred' the rest to taste. (my taste)
I do appreciate the responses here and I will be certain to reply faster next time.
The 2nd is very compelling, full of emotions, and just lovely.
