From Liverpool
« on: September 21, 2022, 12:03:10 pm »

Another iPhone capture. I had in mind song from the Beatles, All the Lonely People. A jpeg capture, I processed non-destructively in LR/PS (ie, just adjustment layers) at 16 bits. At least I think it is non-destructive. Note the saturation that was characteristic of some of their album covers; at least I remember it that way ;)

It is funny how I can accept an artist's rendering as an illustration or painting with bold unreal colours, but in photography it looks a bit HDRish. Nevertheless, the image is interesting. This is a single shot? Not a montage? To me it works more as a surreal-like view of the world going by while we watch from a stationary position.

Interesting take, John. Raw image from the iPhone, single image reflection in window, I would say gentle processing (not HDR), basically a bit of dodging here and there to tame the highlights. Did the Beatles do Surrealistic Pillow? If not, I'm sure their Tibetan sojourn saw a few saturated colors ;)
As to your interpretation, there is the figure of my son ROF watching it all go by. But he's like that! A keen observer. Thank you for the comment.

I like it too… It's complex with all these different depths and reflections.

I like it too. I'm a bit jaded for street photography but this is pretty interesting. I could absolutely see it as an album cover.

I also like it.  The blue you used to color the sky makes the image really pop out.

Thanks, Mark. I didn't do much with the blue other than a vignette in Multiply blend mode, which tends to increase saturation, but that would be in the corners. I wonder if the iPhone pops the saturation in jpegs (which this was). It does pop, however, and the sky was incredibly blue with puffy clouds. This was part of a series of experiments to test the adage, "The best camera is the one you have with you."
