urban landscape 4 - man alone by 


Taken in Perth, Western Australia – from the inside of a car (when my husband was driving).

here’s the original:

Nikon D700, 14-24mm lens @ 16mm, ISO55, f/16, 1/400 sec, -.07 step. Cropped in PS and marks on windscreen cloned out.

Thanks everyone for all your advice! I changed the image here to the one I finally decided on and put in to the NEPG camera club competition. It won a merit in the monthly competition but also won the Best Projected image for the year in the December final competition. (thanks so much to Paul Vanzella for giving me some great tips!)

    Yeah I prefer the colour too! And hopefully he won’t be alone for long. Maybe he off to see his woman! :-)

  • lol! thanks for the advice, brian. I’m quite sure you’re right and he’ll be warm and cuddled up by now!

    The sky looks more dramatic in the b/w but overall the color one is more interesting…
    Great Shot!!

  • thanks so much, brian! it’s beginning to look unanimous. I have a camera club competition coming up and I think this is my best so far.

    yes, i prefer colour as well – fantastic piece!

  • thanks so much, simone. I guess I’m the only one who prefers the b&w then! I can never choose. I’ll go with the colour!

    Nadine, I think the colour works well due to the lack of colour…if that makes sense?

  • thanks so much – i think that’s a very insightful comment, blurto! because I like the colour one except for the blue in the sky which is too colourful – am trying to find out how to tone it to the colour of the buildings. Really appreciate your thoughtful comment.

    One more vote for the colour version.
    I think the colour is an integral part of this image.

  • thanks so much stan!

    I was going to ask about the lens too…is it new and how do you like it?

  • the lens has been around a long time but it’s new to me and I love it. Doesn’t have VR but this was taken through the windscreen of a car going about 60kph round a corner. So this is quite a hard crop – maybe a 1/4 of the original image. I definitely recommend it!

    Oh I do love the lone man, he really brings this to life. Well spotted!

  • thanks so much, georgie! Luckily, I had the camera on continuous – as the man was behind the post in the first 2 shots. Hope you’re having a great weekend!
