Congratulations to Bryan and In Japan, splendid pics! Thanks to MegaTrix for a well run challenge, and awarding me the sweet spot. There were a lot of entries this time that could easily make the top three I believe. welcome to the challenge first timers, I hope to see your entries in future challenges.
I really liked Partridge's shot, though it is a tad overexposed. Abat's is a pic that I wish I took, and the woman there looks a bit like Julia Roberts. Rpoltisr, that's a great shot and post-processing, the shallow DOFeffect really works well. Did you use the technique outlined in a recent Pop Photo article? Boutty, that's a crisp shot you took, and Marie, one can think of counterpoint, in the musical sense, when looking at your pic. And welcome to the newbies, may we see your entries in future challenges!
My shot was taken a couple of Sundays ago while I was marshalling the NYC Century bike ride. We were passing by through the Chinatown area, when I saw this photo op, I stopped and grabbed my G6 from my bag and snapped a few shots before the man moved away.
By the way I am a big Bach fan too! I especially love his Suites for Solo Cello, Air on G String, Two Part Inventions, among others
