Hi Dave, I like drink, lovely colour coming through and I like the reflection you have there.
Dirty, Good use of colour pop technique here, the gritty look to the buffers adds to theme.
Thanks Michael. I like drink too - and the photo :LOL:

As colour popping goes it works rather well, I like the rather bored looking person in the BG
Cheers Allan. Lots of bored commuters about. The challenge was to get just the one :)

Dirty, nice grundgy feel to this weeks theme and good B&W conversion which adds to the feel as does the colour of the buffers as well.

Hi Dave,
I really like your image for squashed. The different expressions on the passengers faces is great. If I were to say one thing it would be that there is slightly more door showing on the left hand side.
Time is a great image too. It looks like the prospective passengers are hoping they'll be given permission to board the train. Great shot.
Full is a good fun shot of what looks like a great night! A great candid capture.
Drink - Wow! Fantastic composition, lighting and reflection :clap:
I like the image for dirty but there's something about it the doesn't really work for me. I can't put my finger on it - sorry.

Thanks Pete

Very nice shot for dirty, liking the pop of the buffer.
Cheers Dave

Week 28 : Wide (and tech)

Fake wide! Playing with the fake wide aperture setting on the iPhone X

When I first saw the pic I was thinking that's a wide angle lens mount to your d850. For a phone shot it seems to have worked relatively well. Nice subtle but noticeable colour pop too.
Thanks Michael. The lens on the D850 is the Nikon 50mm F/1.4G AF-S :)

I like the colour pop on this, never thought I would say that, it’s very subtle as Micheal says above. Not sure what a fake wide shot is it seems very square to me almost 120 film if you know what I mean.

Interesting take on the theme Dave. I have no idea what fake wide would look like - I'm guessing it adds blur to the areas of the shot that are already out of focus? I agree with Allan. I'm not a fan of colour pop but you have pulled it off. You have done it rather well (y)

Thanks both. The clue is where I say "fake wide APERTURE" setting. It simulates a wider aperture and thus less depth of field than the tiny iPhone camera sensor can otherwise produce.

Very nice image indeed Dave.(y)
This type of computational photography has come a long way in such a short time!
Only diligent pixel-peeping would be able to spot it was a 'fake'!
Very nicely done....though, should we all be worried?!;)
Cheers Gareth :)

My first impression was it doesn't look like a wide-angle lens but nevertheless, it's a good shot and an excellent technique effect.
Thanks :)

It isn’t meant to look like a wide angle lens. It’s meant to look like a wide aperture I.e. shallow depth of field :)

Heya Dave,

Closed - haha, love it. You could be Chahut out of Homestuck (except you're missing the horns).
Wide - I don't know what fake wide is on an iPhone either. Surely if you want wide on a phone you turn it through 90'
Anyway. The colour pop works well. I actually like how that has turned out.
Dirty - Lovely. Another colour pop that actually works well. The reds are subtle enough not to overpower the scene.
Drink - Nice colour matching going on there, and great bit of reflection.
Full - Loving the expressions caught on their faces. Great shot.
