Man and Flower Box, 2004

They keep the town pretty, I must say.

You right... they keep the town pretty. The image quite nice and well done. I wonder if some more contrast could improve the image. Taking care with the whites. Tones are nice and the sharpness is quite good. I can get better sharpnness with the D70 than with the D200. However, I get much better colors with the D200. Regards.

I like this and normally I don't really care for "street" scenes. However, this is interesting, with some nice depth and good color. The man in the tie watering flowers make you wonder a bit at what his business is. I think if you added more contrast, you would have to be very careful with his hair, as it's borderline and adding contrast would probably make it blown right out.

Simple and beautiful street scene Les perfectly captured. Clarity and nice details, perfect light control, and excellent natural colours. Very successful indeed. My best Xmas wishes.

This image is an excellent example of what you can do with a rather low resolution camera that some people would consider obsolete. I think the contrast, color and sharpness tare excellent. I wish all of my images looked this clean.
