    Here is a photo that was taken recently in the Spray valley. The first is the original photo while the second is close to what I envisioned the photo to look like in black and white. I invite responses as to what you don’t like or do like about the second photo. The photo was taken at 1/500 sec, f5.6, ISO-200 with a focal length of 100mm.

    Istanbul – Basilica Cistern underneath the old city. In this shot there was only white light and the second shot has the same location but with coloured lights.
    Both taken with an iphone.

  6. sue says:

    Top picture is supposed to be rotated to the right.

  7. sue says:

    Apologies, second picture is upside down.

    More shadows, this time on the Weaselhead bridge. ISO 200, f/14, 1/200. Applied 50% warm dramatization filter in Apple Photos., I like how the colour of my wife’s jacket almost matches the bridge colour.

  10. Ron says:

    Shadows and reflections in Confederation Park. ISO 200, f/14, 1/30.

  11. sue says:

    Trying again to see if I can get the orientation of this picture correct.

    Photos that frustrate. This photo has frustrated me since shot (Assisi, I think), Italy several years ago. The photo is an incongruity and on the face of it should deliver an impactful result. Yet, no amount of post-production tinkering takes it beyond the banal. What did I do wrong when I shot it? Or is there any other way to shoot it that would have resulted in a better photo.

    • Paul Fesko says:

      When I look at the image I am not sure what you want me to see, ie where is the main point of interest? The purple flag draws your eye upward but they say that interest is often found at the point where one pattern changes into another. This would be towards the bottom where the sidewalk meets the walls meets the stairs.

  20. Nick says:

    Photos that frustrate #2: I shot this photo in Florence, Italy. It was shot in colour and modified into B&W with LR. I love the photo. It captures a moment. Yet, it has one flaw that bothers me to no end especially when I prepare it for printing. “Why did I not see it”, I ask myself. Do you see what it is about the photo that bothers me?

      Great street photography Nick. Here is the image that Paul enhanced with Photoshop AI to add more room at the bottom of the image. I used AI to remove the advertising on the shop canopy.
