Challenge: Street Photography (Advanced Editing V)
Collection: Challenges
Camera: Nikon D200
Lens: Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8 EX DC for Nikon
Location: England
Date: Feb 16, 2007
Date Uploaded: Feb 16, 2007

Tone mapped, gradiant adjustment layer, Curves, cont/bright USM, noise ninja, resized, USM, submitted.

OK It's a street shot without people, but I think the street is the important factor in this challenge, to give some personality to the actual STREET itself. I was lucky enough to include a human manakin in the shop window for a little touch of CREEPYNESS. I might get a few DNMCs and a low score but also I hope some voters can appreciate where i am coming from.


Est score - 5.8-6.0
Dream score - 6.3-6.5



OMG!!!
A 7.... its been up n down all week and it actually made it.. Thank you everyone for great coments and most of all to the FAV and the WISHLIST I will get it in print straight away and first submit my original of cause HEHEHE!

A 7 ...

this makes your... 3rd ribbon? hopefully many more! congrats MAK

02/28/2007 03:32:13 AM
Congrats on third place. Good composition. But I think you went a touch overboard on the tonemapping. The differing softened tones on the window, the sign and far wall are the typical tell tale signs for that.

Thanks to everyone for their coments and support.. I tried to get this shot into decent print but its not coming up to my expectations so I wont be submitting it for print.

If anyone REALLY wants a print, PM me with your email and I'll be happy to send you one over for free but be warned it is NOT 100% perfect.

excellent capture, with great processing. can't stop staring at it...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/24/2007 10:54:16 PM
Absolutely stunning. I have only now begun viewing the images on this challenge but would not be the least bit surprised if I saw this on the first page. The leading lines, the presence of the bicycle at the forefront, the rustic look, the composition and DOF all combined to make this a truly remarkable image. Good luck.

Wow, I love the treatment, and I am not sure why, although kind of ordinary, it just strike's me how great this shot is !
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/23/2007 11:35:39 PM
interesting processing. mannequin makes the shot...as most times they do. i wonder what it is about them that's so facinating. the girl's reflection in the bottom right pane is cool too.

This is incredible.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/21/2007 03:39:34 PM
Nice job framing what looks to be a mannequin in the window.
This point of view and overall composition is very good, as are the tones you used in the post-processing. I'm not sure the extent of the pp was in best interests and hope your score isn't getting hit because of it.
I'd really like to see this processed in a more conventional manner, as it really is a very good shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/21/2007 05:33:07 AM
To me its a beaufiful Europeen scene...my only and honest comment is that nothing stand out... there is to many little details showing.. JMHO

Very beautiful image - like a calendar shot. Lovely rural patina.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2007 03:10:48 PM
I love how the mannequin looks so forlorn, like she's dreaming of a better life. Kind of funny.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2007 01:02:14 PM
I LOVE this photo! The processing is so amazing. I wish there was a person in it, but I really love it anyway. It certainly is an awesome photo of a street!

On 2nd thought. . .had to come back to add it as a favorite :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2007 12:55:37 PM
This is def a top 5!! Just incredible view, the angle is incredible, the sharpness and clarity are out of this world. This picture seperates you from all the competition IMO. Your composition is just perfect. Hopefully voters get this one right and make it a ribbon. Beautiful, just beautiful. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2007 12:10:08 PM
Wow, this is great! good luck to you You have my 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2007 09:28:44 AM
I love the composition, the iconic bicycle, the lovely textured walls - but I hate the HDR effect, if that is what it is. The processing detracts greatly from this photo.
