"The ignored..." by JanneO
Clear

I bought myself Sigma’s 70-300 lens and had to try it out in the streets of Gothenburg. I’ve always been intrigued by the “organized”, or so they say, beggars we have in the city but I still pitty them. I took several shots of this man from a good 10 meters away on a busy market street, Fredsgatan to be exact, and have to say I’m pleased with the zoom my new lens can achieve. Some HDR processing and texture work and here’s the result…:)

I did feel sorry for him so I gave him some coins. Needless to say, no one gave him any during those minutes I took these shots of him…organized or not…

I used several layermasks with texture to create this in PS. I also tonemapped the original shot in Photomatix Pro 3 to get more details and that “dirty” look on the beggar-

Hope you like it!…

Hi all,

I want to explore every genre of photography and not limit myself in any manner.

I hope my glimpses of the world help you understand yourself and the world.

It’s a pleasure to share my work with you all! Keep spreading the joy…:)

Cheers, my friends!

    absolutely stunning – both the capture of the beggar and that expression and posture, and the post-production treatment .. first class work

    Hi. Can you please do me a favor and add some additional information to your artist narration section for the HDR process. Things like, handheld or tripod, how many exposures (if you have the setting even better), and what software was used. Once added, please resubmit so that I can accept your work into HDR Photography (3 Photos per 24hr-day) MUST INCLUDE HDR DETAILS

    Cheers!

    Great shot. Sadly, people always seem to look away. A riveting example. I thought there were no beggars in Sweden as the sytem took care of everyone. Obviously I am mistaken. Thank you for sharing.
