About the Image(s)

I've continued my hunt for images I shot but never worked with before during the current COVID stay at home time.

Shot with a Lumix LX7 point and shoot at 1/1,250, f 2.8, ISO 80, from a slowly moving car.

I first cropped the image in PS then converted it to B&W in SEP2. I adjusted the brightness, contrast, and structure still in SEP2, then last I ran the file through Topaz Sharpen AI using the 'automatic' and 'stabilize' modes.

I must say this is a very strong monochrome image from that colour image. Your DOF and focus is spot on and your tonal work is really great. You see images like this and does hit home the differences there are in the lives of humans on this planet, but if you are in the right place at the right time you can end up with some wonderful images.
Do love that his head is turned towards you. Great image.   Posted: 10/19/2020 06:08:05

Another very well done image. Technically this is right on and to me, tells a story of every day labor which is so common in many of the third world countries of the world.

A great story that tells us that things have not changed much in parts of the world. The composition works well and the tones, contrast and shadows are very good. Wondering of including the other people, in the color image but more of them, would tell an even stronger story.   Posted: 10/20/2020 09:52:22
