Passing By The "Pig Pen" Cafe by Tim Sanders

July 2024 - Passing By The "Pig Pen" Cafe

About the Image(s)

Here is this month's offering - fun rather than technical excellence this time.

Taken on my way to the shops in my local town Okehampton. As this characterful chap was passing the cafe known as the "Pig Pen" and it just amused me. Tight crop in on the subject - very simple processing from RAW, a little shadow suppression and converted to black and white with a slight increase in contrast. Nikon Z7ii with 28-200mm zoom at 105mm f11@1.2000second ISO 3200.

Another fantastic "street photo" by Tim. Excellent focus and stopped action. I see where you gone to the Z7ii to replace you D750/D780. No hint of noise. My only nit was No signage from the cafe, but perhaps it has a local following and no sign needed. I'm thinking that you tried selecting his face and increasing exposure?

Thanks Bob, yes regarding the face I was afraid of the light coloured clothing burning out. It is a very tight crop I tried several others with more signage in. And I I am trying out the Z7ii it is much lighter but I am not confident to use it exclusively and the D850 will be coming on photo shoots for the foreseeable future.   Posted: 07/10/2024 16:47:53

An interesting Street Photography example. Technically very well done, and makes one think. Several stories there, sorry, but have to take a quick break for a coffee and a brownie!
Have adopted the politically correct advise to not 'shame' body mass, I do find it alarming to read that some countries have a 70% and higher rate of overweight people - all ages. Health issues and medical costs, most often quoted.   Posted: 07/10/2024 16:02:37
