In the City - Showing what the DA18-55mm can do in the process
Lens: DA 18-55 WR Camera: K-7 Photo Location: Dayton, OH 
Posted By: ManhattanProject, 07-11-2010, 04:48 PM

Just took a trip into the city, I got some decent results. This kit lens can really be put to work. There were more power lines than I would have liked, but I guess that's part of the feel for this city.

Fantastic work! I particularly like the third shot, as well as the first. The first is great because the windows make a subtle green color dominate the frame, and when contrasted with the contrasty blue in the sky and the sharp, clear edges of the building, a fantastic image is formed.

I like the sepia / B&W shots best. You need to avoid cutting off people's heads and also intrusion from the sides of the shots (in both cases see the last shot) - easily cleaned up in PP if you can't frame it right due to conditions during the shoot as sometimes it's just unavoidable if you don't have time to spare !

Thanks frogfish for the insight. I must admit, I'm not quite sure how to go about cleaning up stray objects in an image, relatively new to the photo editing arena.

You can easily use 'Clone' to remove the intruding structure on the right in 1 or 2 mins. The two people at the bottom of the shot would be more difficult but using the same brush (clone) you should be able to do it in 10-15 mins, zoom right in to make sure it looks OK at 200% and then when you zoom out again it should look good.
