    Dear Patrick
    Great close-up shot of this mans face. Just wondering what the eyes are telling us...
    Detail and sharpness well captured.

    Hey Luko,

    I love the framing here and the general mood for the image. I think it's slightly tilted towards the left side but I might be wrong or it might be result of wide angle distortion (the columns and the wall are not perfectly parallel). However, as far as I am concerned this image does not defend itself as a standalone image but would work perfectly in a photo story. I guess it's a part of your photo story so it's a great pity we can't upload whole photo stories on Trek Earth.

    Best,

    Pawel

    PS. Would be even better if not the Canon colours (whoops.... ;))

    Excellent image, I totally love its mood. Those kites look so surrealistic, like some alien entities slowly crawling upon the man.

    Was it so sharp when it came out of camera or did you use a lot of sharpening on this picture ?

    I'm not very into landscape photography but I really love what you achieved here. Light is perfect: the fog, golden light beams of rising sun. It looks like a beautiful painting.

    Really really nice shot.

    I've heard D300 is quite a nice camera. I'm using D200 myself from time to time (lately I mostly shoot film) and I'm thinking on switching to D700 when I get save some cash.

    Hi Sascha,

    What I miss here is movement - a human element, or at least a dog... As for B&W, looks a bit dull. Certainly it's sharp, but what I miss here is play with tones. I'd work on this picture using simple dodge & burn tools... Stress the shadows, improve the contrast a bit.

    I like it, mostly because of the nice depth of field, f/1.2 lens gives you. As for the colour I like it too but I have some doubts about it. My screen sucks but it appears really greenish here. Traditional B&W would give far too much contast here. Green works well, gives the whole thing nice, subtle atmosphere. I'd try a shade of brown as well maybe.

    All in all, good photo. I'm personaly very attached to Beijing hutongs because I lived in Beijing for 2 years and also lived in a small hutong for over 6 months. So far, it was the best period in my life.

    O! A to mi sie bardzo podoba. Wysoki kontrast bardzo dobrze tu dziala i udalo Ci sie uchwycic cos niesamowitego mianowicie wzrok tego kolesia i ta rozmyta twarz po prawej stronie. Poza tym symbolika.... Oni w czerni, stoja (ten jeden chyba kleczy), po lewej ostre swiatlo. Tak jakby ten sakrament wprowadzal ich w swiatlo...

    Ciekawe, bardzo ciekawe i bardzo dobre.

    Brawo, 5+ :)

    PS. Walne workshop :) mam pewien pomysl.

    It's a nice photo, with pretty good composition, B&W tones and overall atmosphere. The only thing I'd change would be either cropping the right side of the image to get the head of the guy on the right exactly in the composition lines cross point or getting a bit closer to him. Anyway, it's a good shot and thanks for sharing.

    Bardzo podoba mi sie idea powracania do jednego miejsca. Chcialbym zrobic cos podobnego, ale w odstepach paru lat. To samo miejsce, dokladnie ten sam kadr i tylko rejestrowac zmiany. Jesli chodzi o ta fotografie, bardzo podoba mi sie scenka, bardzo. Lezaca kobieta, butelka, ten gosciu i jego wyraz twarzy. Niestety, obrobka mi osobiscie zupelnie nie lezy. Za duzo kontrastu, wszystko sie zlewa, bije po oczach. Po prostu nie widze powodu stosowania tak wysokich kontrastow w tej fotografii, nie moge znalezc ku temu uzasadnienia.

    Osobiscie uwazam, ze cala seria byla by fajniejsza jesli:

    a) byla by spojna graficznie, tzn ta sama obrobka, te same tony, wydaje mi sie, ze powinienes sie zdecydowac,
    b) byla by spojna kompozycyjnie - nie tylko miejsce, ale dokladnie ten sam kadr. O ile to zdjecie + zdjecie starszych kobiet (ktore zreszta w calej serii podoba mi sie najbardziej) sa mniej wiecej tak samo skadrowane (tam jest wiecej chodnika itp.) to zdjecie pana z pieskiem jest juz zupelnie inne. Moim zdaniem cala seria byla by o wiele mocniejsza, gdybys robil DOKLADNIE taki sam kadr, dokladnie takie same tony (ewentualnie jedno zdjecie w innej tonacji, ale to musialo by byc uzasadnione, np srodkowe), i tylko kalejdoskop osobowosci.

    No nic... to tylko takie moje przemyslenia.

    Pozdrawiam cieplo
