Tells a great story of their environment
Great composition and picture. Tells a good story as well
lovely scene Tommy, so much detail to study. A bit too strong on the contrast for my liking. I'd like to see this with soft contrasts/softer greys, you'll get a HCB feel from it. Bert
Might give the bnw conversion another try (bit difficult to judge contrast when working on a laptop), might also post the colour version later this week.
Excellent, full of interest. I'm happy with the contrast as it is (no idea what HCB feel is!) but would like to see the colour also.
Loads of character & interest here.
Lovely, so much to look at and all the objects & different textures, yet the simplicity of children playing adds to the natural feel of it.
I think this is pretty good as it is. Sometimes I think digital can be too clean and too flat for mono images, so pushing the contrast a bit, burning the shadows and dodging the highlights eliminates some of the clutter captured by digital's 'all seeing eye' and takes you directly to the point of interest. I'm a fan of Bill Brandt as well as HC Bresson (in case you were wondering - which you probably weren't - LOL) Regards Edmund
Ah, thank you Edmund for explaining the initials, it makes more sense than the Hull Conference Bureau or many others I googled lol.
Lydia, sure you picked up some new titles, so that google time wasn't wasted lol.
Peg, agree that digital straight from the cam is usually too flat for mono - in this case the girl was a bit lost in the clutter before I darkened her clothes. Like both Brandt and HBC too
I absolutely love this, but can't pin point the exact thing that makes it so. The textures and tones of the B&W really bring out the timeless feel. This image characterises why I like B&W. Very well caught. Wife loves also.
I love this shot it's brilliant!! Could spend ages looking at it.
Thanks Shaun & Adele, appreciate it. First shot in a long time I'm rather pleased with..
A completely charming image Tommy, wonderful.
Peg is right I guess, I should play more with digital to find out. Bert
no Bert still think the conversion could have been better...anyway, I always value your feedback because of your film knowledge (among other things) which I'm lacking.
Hull Conference Bureau was quite a good photographer especially the man who jumped over the puddle shot lol, nice one Tommy.
How did I know before scrolling down who deathmouse from hell was lol..?! Missing the Metallica days (or are you still writing) ?
its a beautiful and charming study , a real simple slice of life.
this is just lovely...
Very good photo tommy. You can almost cancel that trip to India
must say I very much like the contrasty look. comes closer to david deveson's work. Also nice vignetting (think it is anyway)
Superb quality, Tommy, well taken and processed, love it as it is.
Great b&w shot, well spotted!
Thanks ladies and Koen and Dave
Lovely shot. Beautiful full range of tones. Nice composition,
the background details make it for me tommy...one that holds the interest
Really nice, like all your work Tommy.
thanks Tom, thanks Bryan and Phil
Lots of interesting things to examine in this, - I like it.
classic little shot Tommy, very nice.
strong image, one to savour
Great image, have only just come accross it.
