Stepping out



  1. a little bit of Get Smart. Captured at the point in time that breaks up the dark rectangle, good timing. The light strip on the left adds an interesting dimension to the frame of the picture.

    • Thanks Robert – I liked this shot because it all seemed to come together at just the right moment, and you have picked up on the two elements of the photograph which I think are crucial to making it a satisfying shot.

  2. I like the feeling that he is marching off to infinity. The recession created by the illumination and steps is very strong in this image. It is interesting that the power of the first/left vertical illuminated stripe has on the image. I looked at the image without the first/left stripe and the impact reduced enormously.
    On a pixel picking matter, is the halo round the man there in the original or is it a function of the algorithm used in the resample for image reduction? I often try different algorithms to avoid the halo as it is content dependant.

    • Rex – I wouldn’t know an algorithm if one jumped up and poked me in the eye. This has been Siver Efex Proed and sharpened slightly in PS. I must admit I was braced for a comment from you about blocked blacks, but the algorithmics have caught me completely off guard. Did you mention the recession because of the reference to Parliament in the title by any chance?

  3. See HERE
    These are the algorithms that can be used when changing image size. They work in different ways and each has its own advantages and disadvantages. One problem can be producing a halo.
