Sunny Afternoon by ash Sunny Afternoon by ash
Embankment, London, January 2003
Canon EOS 300, Fuji Neopan Acros 100, scanned neg
This shot wasn't intended to be as contrasty as this -- I suspect the shop I use is developing the Acros as Neopan 400

well, i'm actually quite fond of the contrast, i really prefer it when pictures have real deep blacks and real whites as well. maybe you could add some density to the top of the picture to attenuate its effects. but otherwise, i like it a lot, especially the composition and how the light - and you - played with the lines and shadows. it's very interesting, like letting the eye follow the lines and wander everywhere.
very well done :) (Smile)

yea, im not too fond on this high contrast. makes it look kinda scrappy.. maybe you should find onewhere to develope them yourself. or go to another shop. its a nice photo tho, good compo'.

Lines leading my tired eyes all over the joint! Restless, yet ordered. I like the inclusion of the curved rail.

Yah, a bit strong on the contrast...but still a very interesting composition. I like how it's busy, but still retains itself so that each aspect of the shot is portrayed nicely. The upper railing really leads one to explore the higher grounds. Then you proceed through the chaos of shadows and lines and finally to the ground floor.

Yay layers! ;) (Wink)

Nice lines and transitions in the shot.... I would have thought the Acros reasonably contrasty in sunny weather though. But then again you cant trust these ppl ;-) (Wink)

Well yeah, its contrasty but it gives the shot some vibrancy. I love the composition, the long curve and that light bang in the center. And as someone else said, well caught cyclist. :-) (Smile)

the contrast is definitely too high, but as for the shot in general i don't like the background. i would have liked more emphasis on all the lines and shadows. i think the cyclist looks good in the shot though.

Point Right Interpretation/Review: Anywhere I turn there will be lines and shadows by it, without the lines there wouldn't be shadows. The froms of direction these lines go to interest me, as how well people build this place to work in their favor.

Point Right Pros/Cons/Suggestions: Very nice capture, good exposeture timing, and the black and white is best fit to show shadows and it's contrast. Good work.

Point Right Award: Cookie

lines, lines everywhere..

in every damn direction!

very interesting effect... causes my eyes to search frantically for somthing to hold onto, then i see an almost interesting parallel with the movement of man in car, and then the movement of man on bike.. and i see..
