Things are really heating up in here again!

Javier, I can see what Ray means regarding that one of the young woman sans head...and I, too, like the angle along with the fire escape. The one of the older man, with his plastic bag, walking past the frilly dress shop is very poignant. I don't know how you PP these or perhaps it is all in camera settings for your jpegs but this one in particular stands out to my eyes as working so well with this scene's subject matter. Very strong "juxtapositioning" going on. Yes, I have just made up a word!:wink:

Michael, you are making me feel very cold, damp and wintery with these two monochromes, however I'll forgive you because their moodiness works so well and since we're practically neighbors, I know that we have had a couple of beautiful, blue sky blustery days of late - thank goodness! Your lone tree is eloquent in its simplicity. Also like the wild double yellow line night drive shot, too!

@BB I really Like the restaurant shots. The first one has terrific atmosphere and I like the depth behind. I used my flash for the first time last night and I was pleased with the way it lit the subject without washing it out. Your picture shows the same thing and is lovely. Is that your daughter?
The flash is pretty neat. I want to try using it more. I tried a night shot outside and it is on my Flickr stream..kind of interesting to see what a blast in the dark can reveal. Yes, the young lady is my daughter. We were celebrating her 21 years young birthday. Thanks for your comments, Kathy - very much appreciated!

Javier - I always enjoy your work, but there's something about the second shot in this most recent series that I really like a lot. Something about seeing just enough of the woman's face to catch her expression/attitude, having her body and posture reflect that attitude perfectly, and then the environs and the clothes and the cross on her neck all work quite well together to create a very strong mood/impression.



-Ray
Thank you very much for the kind words. I saw what you saw in the picture as well. I wondered If I was going to be the only one. :)

Thank you kindly. There are days when I go out and come back with nothing. In fact this is most days. On this day though, I did come back with a few i liked.
These I processed in lightroom v3.2. I just got it and am enjoying the ease and speed of it. :)

LX5 first shots

Here are some of the first tries with the LX5. Hope I get it figured out.

I agree with Javier, ricks! Your two portraits are my favorites, and I can't wait to see more. I really like those two very much. I hope I can convince you to post larger versions in the future. Please check out this thread, if you need any more pointers: https://www.photographerslounge.org/f17/how-post-images-forum-threads-45/

Andreas, your picture combining the old and more modern juxtapositions is something that I wouldn't see where I live - we're too young a country for the most part.:wink:

Thanks a lot Javier. Your pictures always intrigue and inspire me. The picture of the guy above was the first street shot I have taken in about 35 years.

Thanks so much BB. I don't think I will ever forget one of your b&w pictures of your daughter, really outstanding.
I had looked at that post. I have no web presence so I guess I am in the first section. There was a link to learn about the gallery, but it took me to the m43 site where I was denied access.

ricks, thank you for your kind words.

I see now that the details on the gallery are linked to Mu43's site. I'll see what I can do to remedy that and will write more about it later today, on another thread. I'll be sure to send you a PM.:wink:

Javier, I think your 4th of the kissing couple in front of that engagement rings store's sign is fantastic!:bravo-009:

Roni, I had no idea about the multiple exposure option! Very nicely done! I do remember your daughter, so now I know you're the same Roni G I used to see over at Mu43. She's a beauty and has grown up quite a bit. :biggrin:

P.S. I am really looking forward to more of these multiple exposure photos and will have to give it a try myself.

Thank you BBW. It is amazing you remembered my daughter from my old post on the other forum!

Best regards,
Roni

Not so amazing really. I never forget a face...names on the other hand... But seriously, I do remember your daughter and I remembered you for a number of reasons - your posts, your name and where you're from which you mentioned here in your introduction. It's either all that or I spend far too much time over on Mu43 and here, too - but I believe it's the former.:wink:

The colors in this photograph (Man and Bridge) are fantastic! I love the smooth changes from the deep blue all the way down to the orange in the lower part.
