About the Image(s)

Nikon D750 24-80 2.8 lens. Taken in France a few years ago and there was a biker between cars, smoking away, and I just loved the detail I got cropping in, getting the relaxed feeling of the smoker between puffs.

A very different image!! You really have cropped right in and can see all the detail of the smokers fingers!!! Sharp as a tack and the skin colour spot on.
Only thing that bugs me is the black on top left. Keeps drawing the eye. Otherwise real good.   Posted: 10/03/2021 16:07:03

I agree with Angela so a quick fill with Content Aware Fill eliminated it. I just wish the title were more ominous   Posted: 10/09/2021 13:52:59

Wow Bev, Angela and you are spot on. This is exactly why this PSA group is so wonderful. I never saw the distraction. And here you show the easy fix. Thank you so much. The smoker was in France, as overseas they still do a fair amount of smoking.   Posted: 10/09/2021 14:27:07

Try Japan for the winner. We were in a hotel and the men walked in to the lobby, took off their masks and immediately lit their cigarettes. Couldn't last in the lobby for long till one got smoked out.   Posted: 10/09/2021 16:14:23

You captured a great shot, Randall! The detail is amazing and so sharp! I like what Bev did to fix the dark area! I must check out that program!   Posted: 10/12/2021 11:02:43

This is excellent. I like the distraction (though I am sure I am in a minority). I was brought to the lit end of the cigarette, then followed it to the nicely detailed fingers. I moved around the photo.

Anyway. I really like it.   Posted: 10/12/2021 12:33:15

Thanks Brent. Tonight I will have to find the original, and post it, as I think it will floor you how small a part of the shot this is, and still sharp. Thanks for the comments, as I take all views in, especially when I get different view points, as it helps me find my voice.   Posted: 10/12/2021 12:41:30

Brent, here is the original. I was out of town when I posted, and thus did not have it.   Posted: 10/13/2021 05:43:29
