Pizza Hut in China. I thought it looked sorta cool, especially the chinese title and description:). Pizza Huts in China are very different from the ones in the States. Pizza Huts in China are real restaurants; take-out is a strange habit of the foreigners:). No self service and I mean none! Waiters, cloth napkins, the works! Imagine my surprise when I walked into one for the first time and was offered a table!

    I noticed the “red hat” part of the photo and guessed that all the kanji meant pizza hut before reading the pizza hut down the side.
    Kanji is always cool and looks more journalistic in B&W but in this case the RED really works in this shot. Well observed and well executed.

  • thx much! I’ll keep the B&W part and the chinese character part in mind for next time:). Obviously the red hat had to be kept in red:) maybe SC would do the trick? Best of both worlds kind of thing?

    Yep, I certainly like a cool SC. I used to be very ANTI SC with all the “SC Red Rose” photos of the world. But then I came to see that SC actually does accentuate a subject. It can create a “pseudo-3D” if its done right. Me for one would like to see the result of an SC of this cos RED is the best SC colour because the human eye notices the colour RED more than any other colour. Its the first in the RAINBOW with the longest wavelength. There will be homework on this – later !!

  • I added it in the description. have you seen it? Looks pretty good if I may say so:)

    Ah, yes it works very well, cos kanji looks great in b&w and the RED really SINGS against the b&w. I like it a lot. The viewer really gets drawn into the RED.

  • thx much! I’ll keep the SC in mind for my next character shoot:)

    The most unique Pizza Hut I have ever seen,,,,,,,great shot of it,,,,I’m having pizza tonight,,,,, Rick

  • thx much Rick:) The chinese Pizza Hut pizzas seem better, maybe because of the more relaxed way of serving? (all a matter of taste obviously:)
