awesome shot! and your treatment of it is very good indeed.
Brilliant, Koen - love this, the tones are outstanding. Well done on another fabulous candid and quality b&w image to complement your terrific portfolio. I've quite a bit of catching up to do with your more recent posts and will do so soon ... in the meantime, hope this finds you and yours feeling fine!
Very, very good, although the white chair is maybe a touch too white as it grabs my attention more than the other parts.
You've excelled yourself here Koen. The toning treatment on this image is absolutely stunning.
Probably my favourite of all your work is this.
This is just so like David Deveson's style! I love how all the individual articles in the shot contribute to the overall effect. Altogether a superlative composition. I'd love to see it in colour also.
Superb work Koen. A candid image of very high quality.
Very good indeed. Does have a touch of the DD's about it (not a bad thing). I agree on the white chair comment but still awfully good.
Really well composed and the toning works a treat. Well done on your HC Koen )
Congrats on the HC .... see, I said it was good.
Took a long look at this shot in large version, so much to see in it. It really is a quality shot. Well done and congats on HC which is well deserved.
Woohoo - an HC! Congrats! :o)
Superb shot!! Well done!
A very well deserved HC.. class image. (Whispering conspiritorally behind hand: Personally think its a bit mean.. EC quality easily). But you are now batting with the big boys.. think David and Sugarbird better budge over a bit.
Terrific work, shame that the chair was pointed out because now I can't stop noticing it! Lovely tones and treatment. Have you applied a slight vignette?
Wonderful capture Koen, really well done on your HC - very much deserved! Lyns x
The color is perfect and so full of "stuff". My favorite kind of photo. Yvonne
Nice composition and the conversion is great
Thank you Pete ! Glad you liked it.
And thank you all nice peeps
Ian, the plastic chairs always bother me (some thing look bad in reality but good on photo... those plastic chairs just look horrible either way), but you'll often see them in my photos as there's no way avoiding them here in Bangkok. The one you're refering to was very light green, and I often have exposure problems with them. They always seem to give so much reflection/overexposure. Actually did some burning on it, but yes, it's bright and therefor tone-wise not really in harmony with the rest of the image.
Susie, thanks... all fine here
Dave... actually made me blush (and lol for your 2nd comment)
John, thanks for taking the time to look at the large version
Mr blueunderscorewater ;o)... there I go blushing again (I'm still in the minor league though)
Neville... no vignetting... did some burning though in PS. And after sepia-ed and tinted (or is that vignetting) in Picasa.
Anyway, I liked this photo mostly because of the composition of the person and the "stuff" and for the wall. He was sitting on the sidewalk, so completely open before him, but above him the food stall was (partly) covered with canvas. The little bit of light coming trough from above for me really brought that wall to life.
Thank you again
Well done on the well-deserved HC
Your getting the hang of the B/W then Koen lol.
Excellent tonal range does it for me. Paul
It is so perfect! It's as if you arranged all the elements just perfectly before you took the shot and then hired a model to pose just right. The chair looks fine to me. I keep thinking of new vs. old in this one.
and we have a Belgian in the Wimbledon final !!! Henin !
that's one match away from a Wimbledon title and a grand slam :o)))))
Was thinking the same as Patric. This is like a still-life! Grrreat
great photo, another one of your best. The wall ads drama and works extremely well in this contrasty bl&w. well deserved click and shame on Pete for just giving it an HC.
The b&w treatment on this image is different, want to let us in on the secret? Agree with some of the above, you excelled and moved to a top league.
thank you again... now I'm off sleeping on my imaginary HC-pillow (...and soft it is ;o)
really good charactor shot, well composed and lit, well done
Wow! Koen this is superb photography and the grungy wall(without the aid of grunge brushes) really brings some extra mood into shot, so enjoyable to look at.
stunning image, Koen ......very well composed and converted to bnw
congrats on the very well deserved HC and RC
Well done on the HC.
This really is excellent!
what a great study this is, brill
amazing composition + tones.. excellent
Quite a brilliant little still life/portrait. You couldn't ask for a better background!
how the heck did i miss this??!!
fan-bloody-tastic.... everything spot on,particularly like the light here..
congrats on the well deserved HC too
always time for a cuppa. universal image. click.
This is class!
Fabulous Koen congrts..Judith
Ah! a better wall! Wonderful work and yet another HC, well done.
I'm having fun going through the HC gallery and finding lots of special pics
