About the Image(s)

This was taken in New Orleans in April 2019 at the French Quarter Jazz Festival. Camera Canon 6D, Tamron 28-300 at 133 mm, f 14, 1/80 second ISO 1600. In Lightroom I cropped and straightened the image. I also cloned out a couple of overly bright spots. I think the image is a little soft but it was taken in the evening in low light.

Softness of this image in not distracting to my eye. I dont know why you stopped the lens down to f/14. It would be successful at wide open if you focused on her right eye. Exposure, contrast ar good. Good job in straightening the vertical lines. You might try adding a vignette next time. Use of ISO 1600 is fine.   Posted: 09/06/2021 16:40:14

Hi Chuck, thanks for the comments. I have no reason for the f/14 setting, I don't think it was intentional. I probably had it set for the prior photo and forgot to change it. I'll try a vignette, what I should have done is put a narrow border around the image, the black of her clothes blends into the dark surrounding screen.   Posted: 09/07/2021 13:55:54
