About the Image(s)

Sony ILCE-5100 with a Sony 20mm f/2.8 lens
1/200 @ f/8.0 ISO:160

I purchased a Sony a5100 camera strictly for street photography, because of its size. In street photography I shoot from the hip so the lack of a viewfinder works for me.This was the first day out to test the camera. The statue was in our local park and the day was partly cloudy. After conversion to B+W, I cloned foliage into the upper left hand corner using Photoshop and used DxO ViewPoint 3 to fix the perspective. Next I erased some of the distracting spots on the statue and leaves around the base Original. The final adjustment was adding an Ilford B+W preset in ON1 Photo PRO 2020.

A very nice image and a very nice conversion. My only minor suggestions are to have a little more space above the statue, to crop a little off the right side and to darken the two white flowers.   Posted: 10/11/2020 20:48:29
