Sorry Matt but I'm not crazy about the dead center comp. I know, on POTN dead center is usually king (LoL). Also a lot of the shadows are completely blocked and some torso's and heads are blocked into the shadows. I think this image is much stronger without about 30% of the top and if those blacks are opened up some. ;)

I also think the landscape at the top needs some detail in the blocked lower zones....

Those conditions would have been hard to avoid at that time of day, which appears to be early evening. Street lights and some window lights are on. This shot might be better in color to bring the figures out against their backgrounds.

Oh Look its our job to control that when we expose and process. I'm sure there is some info there in the file. Maybe back off the vignette a bit would help.

Thank you! I had a print made of it on metallic paper that came out really nice. This was actually a quick snapshot a few years ago while we were rushing back to the BART station to catch a certain train. Old 30D and 18-55mm kit lens.

Is not really a hard lighting condition. Here is a shot taken around 4pm during the Winter in NYC. An overcast day to begin with too. Chinatown market with produces being lit up by the some ambient light as well as the light overhead. Acros 100 with an EOS 3. HC110. I was able to get back 2 stops of light by adding N+2 to my development. To be fair, this was shot with film and so I can always get back the highlight even if the shot is underexposed to begin with.

Love this shot!! Was the bee a deliberate part of the target or accident? The B/W suits it nicely,great choice.

I believe you're talking about my photo. It was actually around 8 PM. I was able to bring out more detail in the shadows in the black and white treatment than the color version. This was a really quick shot, "pushing" the limits of the camera...1/13 handheld, f4 (largest aperture) 1600 ISO (highest ISO).
