B&W version ...... somehow this might have more appeal than the colour?

i like 'em both steve, but the natural one grabbed me from the start.

it has a real "euro" feel to it and i wouldn't mind it hanging on my wall one bit.

great job!

btw, is this where the xerox twins live? :-)

Like the 1st version too.

How did you stabilise the camera at that angle? (Can't see you in Monte with a tripod.)

And did you have any luck whilst you were there - on the tables I mean, not with the Xerox sisters!:-)

Steve, I am pretty impresed with these. Are they straight out of the camera? When using this mode and especially at ISO 800 I usually give 'em a run through Neat'. In the right circumstances I've found this is a great mode.

Thanks for the comments;

Scot - I'm assumingyou mean in the outhouse:GTwins send their warmest regards and asked if you would like a xerox 'peak'.

Greg, we were sitting at a one of those bistro type joints right opposite, having dinner, so I was able to rest my elbows on the table to take the shot.Just one of those spur of the moment shots.

Syd, they are straight out the camera - but added a touch of sharpening and a touch of saturation that's all. The natural light & anti-blur modes are actually quite useful in certain conditions, I've found.

On reflection think I prefer the original colour as well.

The color version really catches my eye. Very nice.

Steve,

I prefer the colour version by a long way. Not too sure about the composition on this one, the photo's neat enough, and the lighting is cool but overall it just doesn't grab me particularly.

I think it has something to do with looking up at the building, and the fact that the left hand side, there are some cut off lines/windows.

It does make me wonder about the lives of the people in the building, what with all those open windows etc. Has a very 'city' feel to it.

I think a run through neatimage, as syd suggested, would help out, too.


Best,

-Ben

Thanks for your comments OB - this is actually a 'theme' shopping mall we have. The entire interior and exterior of the mall, which is quite a large complex including a hotel and casino, is constructed as a Tuscan village complex. Lighting is quite subdued at night. Didn't do any further PP on this as I felt the noise complimented the 'earthy' effect.
