Lunch for Two by Chuck Carstensen

January 2020 - Lunch for Two

About the Image(s)

While having lunch at a local restaurant I noticed the two ladies. I balanced my trusty iPhone on its side and guessed at the composition. Made a few exposures and chose this one as best of the bunch. Took it to PSCC2020 for cropping to size 1024 px wide. Then to shadows and highlights tool for minor adjustments Final was smart sharpening at 50%.

I like this image very much. I think the red lamp adds a nice touch. To me the composition and back lighting create an intimate mood. I'm not sure but I think I may like it better if some of the table were cropped out.   Posted: 01/02/2020 15:49:45

Interesting capture, but to me it looks muddy and the colour balance seems a little brown to me. I think a tighter crop might be better too. I had a play in PS - what do you think?   Posted: 01/08/2020 16:27:47
