    Default An Evening Stroll

    I was waiting for my daughter on Friday when I saw this scene and hoped someone would walk along. Not only did someone show up but they were dressed to make the shot perfect. That hat she's wearing makes it look like 1920 or something which was just perfect! Patience paid off.

    Nice. Think about a B&W.

    I do like the Victorian feel, and would be interested to see what Barefoot's B & W suggestion would look like?

    Really lovely image Iggy - Can't make up my mind if the lightpost is helping though. For me it also works w/out the post.

    Thanks, everyone. I often avoid B&W unless the image screams B&W for me. This one whispers it. The yellow/sepia type tones speak more to me in this image which is why I left it in colour. I might post a B&W version just for fun.

    Yes, Realist. I am glad I didn't muck it up

    Thanks, Marko. I liked the light pole but I'm don't like the No Parking sign. Thought about cloning it out. I can see it works without the light pole as well but it's an old fashioned kind of light pole that works with the mood, I think. I think the sign is what's really been bothering me since I posted it... maybe I should wait longer before I post an image.

    Eye candy, Iggy. Simply eye candy. Wonderful composition, exposure light ... superb.

    Cool image Iggy. It does have that old time look to it. I have to admit I'm with you in trying to get rid of the no parking sign, it doesn't fit with the era. Like the others I intrigued as to what it would look like in B&W.

    Well, it probably sucks as I'm not a B&W processor. Anyone who wants to try is welcome to try. Here's my version. You can download the full size JPG from my Flickr page: All sizes | An Evening Stroll | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
