    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.

    Thanks.
    I wish I knew the couple; they probably would like a copy


    Thanks.
    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.....

    :biggrin: 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.
