Formerly known as the "eco-friendly bicycling photographer" of Long Beach. I've since traveled 10,000 miles through the US as PathLessPedaled.com. I now find myself in the US bike epicenter - Portland. Join me as I re-enter the working world to save for the next adventure.
This has to be one of my favorite pics from yesterday. I did my BW conversion in Lightroom and added a tilt/shift effect in Photoshop. I really wanted to emphasize the smallness of the rider compared to the mountain. The rider (Chris) really gives the whole photo a sense of scale. I added the tilt/shift to make it look as if you were looking at a miniature model and also to make the rider and the road stand out more.
The photo was show with the Canon G10 I've been playing with. It has been a great P&S as long as you treat it more like a clunky rangefinder than a miniature DSLR. I am, however, also contemplating picking up an LX3 later on so I can get a 24mm angle again and also a camera I can shoot at ISO 400. I use to shoot with 2 or 3 Leicas slung around my neck when I shot film, so I guess this would be digital equivalent?
