About the Image(s)

Details: This was taken at a steam punk event and although this model was not as extravagantly dressed as some, he did cut a dashing figure in his period costume. We were at a steam railway yard and this sign pointed to the nearest washroom but was a useful prop for this member of the upper class! Mono treatment seemed appropriate. 1/60 f4.5 ISO 400

Visiting from 48 & 80 - For me this is a perfect image. The image itself is extremely well done. The monochrome choice is an excellent one and the "cream on the cake" is the sign and positioning of the gentleman.   Posted: 10/04/2019 14:37:12

I, too, find this a highly satisfying photo, both in intent and in presentation. The gentleman is indeed that, and there is an elegant dignity here. Great job with splendid result.   Posted: 10/06/2019 23:19:18

Great capture, and composition. Fun image. The only thing I would suggest is decreasing the brightness of the wood shed wall under the "Gentlemen" sign, it tends to draw my eye away from the Gentleman.   Posted: 10/07/2019 06:06:53

That's my photo friend Bev from #48 and #80! Drop by her images and leave a comment.

I'm trying to fill some space here as this image needs no feedback from me. Yes, it does lack the outrageous outfits of most steampunkers but it makes up for it with the pose, the location/signage and the B&W treatment. i wouldn't change a thing here. Well done, Peter!   Posted: 10/07/2019 14:27:10

A well planned pose with a nice story. The Mono treatment is effective. For improvements, the wood shed is a little bright and the left side is too tightly cropped. Overall, an interesting image.   Posted: 10/11/2019 15:51:20

The right character in the right place. Then you have treated to a monochrome conversion, absolutely the right thing to do, it removes the distraction of colour in the telling of the story.   Posted: 10/14/2019 05:58:57
