Challenge: DQ Deja Vu (Expert Editing)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Canon EOS-1D Mark III
Lens: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

Aperture: 2.8
ISO: 1600
Shutter: 1/160

Done with the big rig, 600mm B&L f/5.6 for this shot.

I also found out that I can't focus this in the dark, the 300 f/2.5 yes, the 600 no. Really surprised at how well this did, given the absence of any fine detail.

For those curious, the overlay wasn't. That's a very beaten up and scratched up film plane. The editing here is pretty limited, and consists of nothing more than sharpening and a bit of B&W work/layers

I like this, it engages, it focuses in the right place for the mood and falls of nicely. The added? overlay well suits the piece and I like the duality of the background. Interesting. 8

Not so much a "recreation" as a more down-to-earth variation.

I really love this image. A fabulous portrait with what looks like a lensbaby or pinhole. Not sure the overlay is needed. All this being said, except for it being a portrait, this is radically different from the original, which uses lighting for its impact.

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

Image grain and/or texture overlay can either work for a photo or work against it. Here it works in spades. It gives texture, dimension and a sense of age/time. This takes on the characteristics of an old and time worn photograph. One that we spot while turning the pages in a family album. Lighting is great and love the details I see in this portrait. Well done. I only have one tiny critique/observation. There is image grain and 'texture' overlay all throughout the background, except there is what looks to be a smooth/bald patch just to this man's right. It just looks bare and out of place with the rest.
