    George, welcome to the Class and thank you for the entry! thumb.gif

    One thing, though: EXIF says it's auto mode, the requirement was full manual mwink.gifdeal.gif
    Oops! Well, I'll have to try something else. Maybe I'll see something as I travel I can capture.

    Thanks! :-)
    On a first one, I honestly think there is too much negative space. It could be that it looked great in color, but with out target bw/duotone it surely create just a large gray void.
    I like the second one. Few things that could help with the "50ies theme":
    • more aggressive bw treatment
    • add grain
    • slight vignetting
    • the image features a slight keystoning effect. I would either fixed it or emphasized it

    Thanks, Kathy, very a propos subject:-)
    One thing we need to pay attention to when doing something like that is the sky. It was a common thing in b/w film era to use a yellow filter to drastically emphasize the sky, which, if left alone, would always be rather bleak. This is especially true here in SoCal where the clouds are very rare guests.
    Nowdays can either use PS photo filter, or simply mask the sky out and treat it separately to make it the way we want.
    Another thing that can be good to create a 50-ies shot imitation is to use a super high ISO, thus creating a in-camera noise. While different from X-film grain, it can set a solid base.
    HTH

    Plus-X and Tri-X
    Yes, my very first photo class was in 1971, we shot and developed Plus-X and Tri-X. And I do remember those filters. mwink.gif Not only were the filters yellow, but, so were your fingernails from the chemicals.

    My next PS class is on using them. clap.gif I will have to go back and work that image when I get there.

    Digital imaging is a whole 'nother world, huh?

    Thanks very much. It's the building for the Bank of Nova Scotia in Toronto, which was the pinnacle of modern in the 50's.

    I was told these bowls were from the 50's, but since I wasn't around, I'm not sure :)
