I like them both Steve, but if I had to pick I would go with the first one.


That's the beauty of choice Leighton.

So thank you very much for making a choice that pleases you.

Thanx for the comment.

Cheers

Steve

Here is my first offering from the lens... I knew the backlighting would darken the foreground and highlight the shape of the two mannikins... just for fun.

Congrats on the new lens. Looks like this lens is the perfect choice for this type of shooting.

Steve, very nice wet street set. "John Plays the Guitar Beautifully" is very fine.

Tom, the market set is terrific. I especially liked the "frogs in a box" shot.

Chin, really nice perspective on the surf-casting fishermen.

Curtis, love the "hip shot" with your new 20/3.5.

Steve, I prefer the 1st version of your barber too. My personal favorite SilverEfex preset for "any subject in jeans and other clothes made out of cotton" is the push+1.5 preset ;-). A very film-like looking setting, I usually try this one and go from there (fine-tuning).
Mrs. Thistlehead is a classic B&W-subject for me too - very nicely done!

Curtis, "californian-hip-tilt" and the wide angle of the 20UD go well together for a dramatic image ;-)

Jeff, I like the sandpiper-shot a lot. Maybe I would prefer a wee bit less "fog" (just a touch less) on the bird, but I'm not sure about it.

3 shots from Swedish harbours, all taken with the 55/1.2 at night.


Ystad von georgsfoto auf Flickr
Crime is king in Sweden, at least when I check the local bookstores for crime-novels. Every second writer is a Swede.
The shot above was taken in Ystad where the famous "Wallander"-novels play.
I liked the view from our slowly moving moored boat for it's slightly mysterious character.
Shot at ISO 25.600 and pushed a bout two stops in post to suit my taste. Grain added ;-)
D3s + 55/1.2 at f/4, 1/15sec, handheld


almost extra-terrestrial ghosting von georgsfoto auf Flickr
a tiny droplet of rain might be reason for this weird ghosting - no filter was used and the proper lens-hood in place.
This wooden boat was in terrible shape, but I'm just talking about the condition, not about it's shape in terms of lines and curves.
I hope this vessel can be rescued, it will stand out from todays white plastic-cannisters called "yachts".
D3s on a Berlebach Mini, 55/1.2 at f/5.6, 30sec at ISO 1000
I've already posted a color-version of this shot (in-camera-conversion), but prefer B&W.

And here's another shot of the Fordson:

Fordson flare, glare, glamour? von georgsfoto auf Flickr
same night, same flare and ghosting - f/8, 30sec and ISO1600

Comments appreciated and noted. Will try your suggestion re subjects in jeans and cotton clothing.

Steve, "Jeans and Cotton" is a bit of fun, but I've noted that the fabrics texture and the preset's grain work well together. SilverEFEX is a fantastic tool, hope to see more B&W-shots from Manchester soon ;-)

Ron - I like the processing of the first image. I also like the frame you chose.

Georg - Love the Fordson! And the lights at both ends of the boat are cool too, very well composed.

Ronny, thanks for sharing the more beautiful views of Sweden after my post from the dark and grainy harbours ;-) Fantastic work with the 28/2.8, your processing is great too.

Thanks Georg and Ronny.

Ronny - I very much like the first one, quite different from you.

Ray - These are wonderful, they have that pop to them. The first and third images look like there some blown highlights in the clouds, the second one is perfect. I wouldn't have expected that with a polarizer on, but I'm no expert. I've only used that filter a hand full of times.

Cool shot, Curtis. I am going to try using my modded 20mm UD later today but here is another obligated shot of my muse, Rapunzel. 135mm f2 AI
