Scooter, San Francisco, California, 29 November 2014 (One Four Challenge, Week 3)

Standard

Good Evening:

One of the two ideas I had for Week 3 did not work at all, so I’ll spare you the viewing. Went with a 100% B&W conversion instead that became anything but a simple selection from a menu.

After the conversion, the picture didn’t look right, so ended up resorting to these iPhone settings: Exposure, 1.47; Contrast, +20; Saturation, 0; Definition, 60; Highlights, 100; Shadows, 100; Sharpness, 100; De-noise (whatever that is), 0. And the result:

The increased Definition brings out the lines in the buildings, all which point to our friend, so I like that. Also, his hair stands out a bit more from the black roof. For the first time, I notice the One Way sign pointing directly at him, as well as a triangle in the background. The notion that he’s riding against the One Way sign, and from the older building to the newer interests me a bit.

Still have one idea left to try.

  1. I really enjoy this version Vonn Scott – I like the way the detail does come out in the building and his hair, defining it from the building.
    I really like that you saw the One Way sign and he is going against it… funny.
    The triangle, the old and new. All so obvious now that you’ve brought our attention to them, but I didn’t notice them before either.
    A great week for you!! 😀
