Wonderful images on this page!

This weekend I moved my daughter to my old city, Milwaukee so I found a little time to meet up with some friends to do a little photowalking:

Ah, I see now that you are using the 50/2 MP, not the 100. Yes, that lens does have an extraordinarily large depth of field in relation to its aperture value. I am still surprised you are not using more. Are you cropping?


Yes I crop images quite hard ... I use probably most 100MP but find
50MP delivers very good at this kind of images. I amplifies the details of when I edit the pictures :-)


Thanks Luka :-)

Ah okay, now I understand. The DoF looked too large for a tight composition, even with that lens, and I couldn't quite figure it out

Bob, your two BW conversions on this page are amazing. Care to share your method. Such drama wrapped up in them.

Rirakuma, also liked your BW head shot. Classic James Dean kind of presence.

Jako, colors in the stairwell shot were exceptional.

Both were converted using Silver Efex Pro v.2. However, the first required a lot of playing with luminance channels in the color version along with added vignetting. Once in Silver Efex, I chose a preset to bring out more structure and contrast (can't remember which one).

For the second shot, I wanted to bring out the texture in the sky and give it an almost HDR look. I have a recipe in Color Efex Pro that combines bleach bypass with their 'Monday Morning' preset which I then modified further to reduce the blur effect but keep the micro contrast and desaturated in Silver efex for the finished image.

Thanks for asking!

rji2goleez: also love the black and white shots. Being originally from WI, milwaukee holds a special place in my heart (or liver).
