A bit of a dramatic crop. Does it work or is it too much? Shot from the hip in the street in Bridlington. Canon SX40Hs on auto. Zoom pre-set at about 80mm. ISO100 and aperture priority f8. That's as small as the aperture will go. Shutter speed about 1/800.
Not much processing. A bit of dodging in shadow areas and a weak smart sharpen. I find a major problem still with compacts and this bridge camera is a tendency for the camera to over process making later work more difficult. I often despeckle before sharpening o get a smoother effect.
