  1. Just for fun, snagged this while out testing the Nikon 135mm f/3.5 AIS lens on the Df. Thought I would have some fun and post it processed a couple different ways.

    You can vote, comment, tell me its the best street shot you've ever seen or it ranks right up there with the worst turd of a shot you've ever seen! LOL. Seriously...just wanted to stir up a little poll/conversation about this image and the processing. You'll not hurt my feelings, promise!!

    AND VOTE!!
    To be honest, I'm even thinking now that I should have square cropped it with just the kid and the yellow leafed tree. I might post that later on once people get some votes in.

    By far the best idea, as the current renditions ... suck :D

  4. I heartily disagree. The first one works well for me. I won't bore you with the reasons that's true or the reasons none of the others do. That's because I don't matter; you're the only one who does.

  5. The first is great. Others seem soft and/or low contrast.

    I picked number 4 and am only one so far. I almost always favor black and white over color. BW has soul to me and color does not. Once again beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
    Another thing I really don’t care for tack sharp photos. A photo with slight imperfections has more life as life is imperfect.

  10. I agree with Karen. I think what you did in the others detracts from the original rendition (1.)

  12. The composition itself does nothing for me, but of the four renderings, I prefer the first.
    A decisive push of the "delete" button rather than a slow, painful and ultimately unsuccessful Photoshop manipulation procedure would in my opinion probably be the most merciful course of action

  13. That's the nicest way that I've ever heard someone tell me my picture was garbage and should be destroyed.
