p.2 #1 · The alt monthly competition #8


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Camera body: NEX-7
Lens: Leica Summilux 50mm
Aperture: f5.6
Filters:
Short note on PP: Just standard sharpening
Votes; top vote goes to jpeter, a totally surrealist, yet realistic shot, very well executed in B&W. N2: briantho, N3: leadygonzales
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Anyone noticing that these are the same three votes I cast last month can conclude that I messed up last month. Apologies to all, and congrats to Phillip Reeve!
Also didn't get out much in January for health reasons, but I did get one street shot, which is very unusual for me do to legal constraints in France

p.2 #3 · The alt monthly competition #8


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Camera body: Sigma DP2 Merrill
Lens: 30mm (45mm equivl)
Aperture: f/8
Filters: Marumi Super DHG Polarizer
Short note on PP: Fidding with Sigma Photo Pro and minor adjustments
in Photoshop
Top vote + reason: bobbytan - Technically perfect shot of a captivating subject. Nailed the focus on the eyes, just enough DoF, but not too much, sharp, perfect exposure. On an emotional level it really allows you to "connect" with the subject.
Vote 2: Phillip Reeves
Vote 3: Bobu
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First waterfall shot I've taken in January...two weeks after this was taken there was ice everywhere.

I'm doing my best on that thanks. The needed surgery was 3 weeks ago (emergency admission rather than scheduled, which saved me a wait). So i have some snapshots from this month taken whilst walking around trying to get strong again. I'll be back for the March competition.
