I like your series of street images... nice use of bw and dof, Lannie.... this is my fav

Dennis Jones
Lannie IMO, this is the best of the three. I'd like to see this a tad lighter tho...

How you been?

Landrum Kelly
Thank you, Vanya and Afshin. I appreciate the kind remarks. --Lannie

Landrum Kelly
Thanks, Dennis. I'm fine and have been enjoying your latest rounds of photos. There is a lighter version of this in color in the same folder. --Lannie

Walter Tatulinski
Hi Lannie! I agree...I like this one best of the folder. It is wide enough to include the long horizontal reflection off the precipice of the step at the bottom of the frame, similar to #1 of the series, but does not have the distracting cars in the background. You need this lower horizontal element because it echos the ones further on into the frame. I prefer the isolation that this image implies; the others lack that mood. The bicycle adds considerable interest to the chap, and I really like the way they both lean into one another.

I like the centered handrail and the way it points down the street. The silhouette of the lamp against the sky is cool, too. The monochrome conversion is unquestionably ideal for this subject and genre, much better than the color versions (and you know I love color!). On my monitor I see some detail in the shadows, so I would say that the levels are okay. A little lighter might actually hurt the ambience; it's a judgement call.

I guess you could say that I like everything about this photograph. One of the best Street Shots I've seen. Good job! Regards.

Landrum Kelly
Well, thanks, Walt! You see so much more than I do. I am so pleased that you like it so much. --Lannie

I like a lot the dark silhouette against the light background. It's eye catching. It's a nice passage filled with soft lighting. Best from me!
