Mountain Roads City Streets by Marianne Barnhardt

January 2022 - Mountain Roads City Streets

About the Image(s)

Driving by this street the whole scene caught my eye. New and Old, mountains and streets, high risers and small stores.People on the street, people on the roof, and people in the windows. The chair caught my eye. It amazes me how much I saw and captured in 58 seconds . I think the coolest part is the STOP at the end of the city.
I only had my Canon. Would love to enter this in a contest but the quality isn't great.

Marianne, looks like San Francisco. As you mention it is not great. Lacks contrast and it is not sharp. Good composition and it is a snapshot of your trip.   Posted: 01/02/2022 11:37:38

Thank you Isaac I find it very difficult to take pictures when I'm moving and I have very limited time .I'm not very good at that especially without a tripod or anything to balance on, but I like what Lou did to it it's amazing I need to really learn that technique.   Posted: 01/02/2022 20:28:50

Hi Marianne, I think you have another very nice image. It seems to me that you have an eye for this sort of image. I think the composition and depth of field are great. I think the image is good and could be contest quality, as Isaac said it lacks contrast. I hope you don't mind that I took the liberty of importing a copy and I did a couple of minor adjustments in Lightroom. I de-hazed the image and added some sharpness. I also darkened the blacks somewhat.   Posted: 01/02/2022 16:19:43

I never mind anything anyone is willing to share with me I still haven't mastered this technique and I'm not sure why I can't seem to get it right you did a great job with it and I really appreciate it. Thank you very much maybe we could touch base sometime and you could walk me through it. On a zoom I guess :-)   Posted: 01/02/2022 20:29:36

Sure that would work. Do you use Lightroom?   Posted: 01/02/2022 20:57:07

In my mind it's an interesting snapshot but not really street photography or wall worthy. The black and white conversion is very flat and sort of soft. I would really like to see the color original.   Posted: 01/04/2022 14:54:18

I understand. There is no story. The original is what I posted.   Posted: 01/15/2022 12:19:45

I like that it's an image in black and white. The street is well placed in the image with the buildings on the side.   Posted: 01/19/2022 09:52:17
