About the Image(s)

This was taken at a gleaning event for FareStart - a local non-profit. The food goes to feed the less fortunate.

Taken in bright sunshine around 11 AM. (It was hot.)

Canon R5. ISO 100, 1/800th, f3.5, 135mm

Cropped and darkened highlights. Brought up shadows on the face - without trying to make it look fake.

All suggestions are welcome.

Very nice image, it tells a story. My only suggestion, would be to tone down or remove some of the white spots near his hand on the right side and a couple more spots on the image.   Posted: 07/10/2021 12:18:20

This tells a good story, showing in this man's hand the hidden treasure of this field.

Aside from the bright spots, I think the highlights on the man are a little harsh. I brought this into Aurora HDR to make a faux HDR image, applying the results only to the man and the radishes. Thoughts?   Posted: 07/15/2021 16:07:28

Unfortunately this was shot in broad daylight.
The Aurora made his skin a little blotchy.   Posted: 07/15/2021 16:44:52

This image tells a good story. A broad daylight capture is difficult to deal with but you did a good job.   Posted: 07/16/2021 21:07:20

Good story of issues we face today. Good that the radishes pop with Tom's changes. Nice work with challenges of light.   Posted: 07/21/2021 19:49:00
