About the Image(s)

This photo was taken at the local food market of HongKong during sunset time, I captured 2 photos; one is focused on the sky before sunset, one is taken on the food market when lights on.

Both pictures were combined together for create a more atmospheric picture, all the needs of adjustment is PS + camera raw.

Shooting equipment: Nikon Z6II, Laowa 10-18mm lens, ISO200, f/8 1/250s for the sky, ISO250 f/8 1/5s for the food market

Louis, what an incredible image. I love that it's so intimate and at the same time broad in scope. It makes me want to know what they're selling and buying in the colorful market all under the canopy of the sky and skyscrapers. My only suggestion, and it's just my eye, is that the tall building on the right pulls my eye to it. I'm wondering if you cropped to eliminate it, if it would ruin the overall effect? Anyway, as usual, beautiful work!   Posted: 01/10/2022 19:29:43

Hi Louis,
Once again you have captured the moment. Your composition and in particular your editing is first rate. In highlighting the center market area you have directed the attention to the main subject very well. I believe the slight enhancement of the sky adds to the appeal of the overall scene. Cropping out the building on the right also was an overall benefit to the main subject eliminated the distraction. Would the darkening of the bright spot on the buildings on the left improve even more.   Posted: 01/11/2022 09:28:23

Louis, I like the way you saved the sky in the original then brought out the shadows and bright colors of the market in postprocessing. Using the market as a leading line strengthened the composition. A very fetching image.
