Life Is A Carnival, And Vice Versa

Leica M, 35mm Summilux, processed in LR5 and Nik Viveza (to lower the bright lights in a few places.) And thus concludes our coverage of the 2013 Teton County Fair.

Determining The Best Among Three Similar Images

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on July 27, 2013 by johnbuckley100

Three pictures of essentially the same image, taken at different times, but with the same camera and lens (Leica M, 35mm Summilux).  The first is, to our eye, by far the best, but flawed by the fact that in the lower right hand corner, you can see Porta-potties and a dumpster.  Still, we love those clouds, the colors as processed in LR5 and Nik Color Efex Pro 4.

Ferris 1 (1 of 1)


Here we try to get the same shot, but without the flaws.  Alas, the sky was not nearly as dynamic.  Processed in LR5 and Nik Viveza (mostly to reduce brightness.)

Ferris 2 (1 of 1)


Finally, we have this one.  Same evening as the one above, hence no clouds.  But at least the dumpster and bathrooms aren’t visible.  Processed as above.

Ferris 3 (1 of 1)


Hard to say which is best, except clearly the clouds make the first one pop.  But I also like the third one.  And, uh, the second… And click on any of the three to see a series of vignettes taking place among the people who — even standing precariously and shooting handheld at, like, 1/12th of a second — you can clearly see enjoying themselves in the fairground crowd.

An Example Of The Leica M-240 In Mixed Light

Leica M-240, 50mm Summilux, yes processed in both LR5 and in Nik’s Viveza (to properly lower the light coming in through those windows.)  We like what we were able to do with a file this dynamic.  From Fore Restaurant in Portland, ME.
