Little Woman, Big Camera

by davidstorm

Shot recently on London's South Bank with the K-x and DA L 55-300mm. I've deliberately processed this with higher than normal contrast as I thought it made the girl & camera leap out more from the background. This is one of my favourites from a recent trip with Larry Sovitch and his wife Marion. I might also upload the colour version if anyone likes this one.

Good street shot IMO, lots of character and interest in all the faces and yes you've succeeded in the 3D effect. I feel like gambling so will say the B&W will be best.

Great hectic capture. I think the high contrast works for just the reasons you stated. Great.

Fellow with glasses isn't a Cannon fan?

And she obviously isn't thrilled with her last take.

Time to try a Pentax.

I agree, it's a great b/w she stands out perfectly from the background.

I love high contrast monos and this works a treat David.

Great capture, David. I like the high contrast and I think this shot works better in mono. I also like the expression of the figure behind her.
