Evening Walk.

By paulbroad
A bit of strong back lighting. Exposed for highlight but still had to burn in a bit. Luckily a rim light right round the figures. Purposly kept bushes etc. very dark. Just shapes really.

EOS 7D with 18/250mm Sigma OS at about 135mm. OS on. ISO100. Aperture priority f11. About 1/800 sec with -2 stops compensation.

Nice shot that popped out as a thumbnail. The burning might be overdone just a tad as it seems to be introducing some colour into the tarmac. But a good image.

Dead right, Willie. Quite a bit of burning in some areas.

Nice simple image, but I find my eyes drawn to the grass as its the only colour. This might be better as a straight b&w as its pretty graphic in nature. I would have also liked it shot fractionally earlier, so the figures weren't cutting the road/bushes line, but its somewhat saved by the rim lighting around their hair.
Just shows though, that there are subjects in even the most mundane situations.

I like it.. I can't work out the technical matters.. I just wonder.. is it really evening? Wink

It is looking west, Jas, but about 16.00. So, you are right, not technically evening.

SmileActually, it reminded me of the time when I can take some photos... that means day time with strong contrast of light ... it was the shadows...
