Challenge: Backlighting II (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Olympus E-300 EVOLT
Lens: Olympus 14-45mm f/3.5-5.6 Zuiko Digital ED
Location: Fire Station
Date: Jan 9, 2006
Aperture: f5.6
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/30
Date Uploaded: Jan 9, 2006

Photo taken at the local firehouse. Halogen light behind the firefighter in turnout gear. Low power flash from the Hotshoe flash. I never could get the exposure just right, shot in raw, adjusted exposure. Cropped, rotated to straighten horizon, remove color, sharpened, neat image to try and remove noise. I know its noisy still, but I like to think of this as my great concept that I failed miserably at. But I'm sticking it in here to see how it does. Special thanks to Dennis who was my subject and the Fire dept for letting me take up some of their time for my attempt.

It's amazing how you can still see the detail in his face. The contrast is outstanding. :D

Very nice, love the use of light and shadow, the reflector strips really accentuate the picture. Very strong picture.

Cool idea - good subject for the challenge. Nicely composed, simplified by use of black and white. Well thought out.

the face is a little bit to dark and the reflexes draws to much attention from the man

This is a cool shot, but he was flashed from the front and this challenge isnt front lighting.
