A Street Scene in Montreal (and a note about this Blog)

A Street Scene in MontrealTo view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

It’s sometimes hard to capture the mood and intensity of a place. Our eyes see a wider range of light and detail than our cameras. This has always been a challenge for me with street scenes. I think in part that is due to imagination and the influence of the cinema. I was very careful with this shot to avoid halos on the buildings and to correct chromatic aberrations. I also used some detail enhancement for the texture and color.

This is the anniversary of my blog and website. Many thanks to all who follow me, visit the site, like it, and comment. It keeps the pressure on me to produce more and better work.

    • Thanks. If it were not Arctic cold and snowing, my motivation would be higher this morning. Spring cannot come soon enough.

    It does happen frequently that I do take a street scene and when I open the photo on my computer, I just flush it because I did not capture the essence of what I saw, it is not easy… and happy anniversary

    • Thanks. Often I find a photo like this is still a bit conceptual until after a bit of post processing to clarify the scene.

  11. Well done to you, only halfway to my first year myself, and I totally get what you mean about coming home and finding your pix don’t live up to the experience. I find this almost always the case when taking pictures from a height e.g.. a clifftop etc. It’s hard to show that distance to the ground below. Love the photo above though. 😉
