Facing Apart and Strutting

Facing Apart and Strutting

I’d lined up to catch a shot of the two people on the bench, because I found the way they were sitting so close, but so separate, interesting. When the two men on the right walked into shot, though, they added a perfect balance.

I tried a few difference ways of processing this shot, with both onOne Perfect Photo Suite and DxO Film Pack, but none looked quite as good as it did straight from camera. The Voigtlander Nokton Classic 40mm f/1.4 is a great lens for this sort of photography.

Princesshay Alley

An alleyway in Princesshay, Exeter, taken from the bridge between parts of the rooftop car park. The main stitched background is straight from PanoEdit, but I then used two colour shots with people in them, and overlaid them on top using DoubleTake. All images for the background were processed with the Ansel in the Valley filter in onOne Perfect B&W, using Perfect Batch to automate the job.
