Over the Fence
Posted By: Mike Cash, 10-04-2007, 05:04 AM

A young mother holding sheet music consulting with her daughter's piano teacher this evening.

Light was from a single patio light (cropped out) and from inside the home. I monkeyed with the levels/gamma to darken the image a wee bit to further accentuate the lighting from inside. A layer mask went over the fence portion to protect it from darkening into an indistinguishable dark area while I adjusted the curves on the rest of the shot.

S-M-C Takumar 105/2.8
ISO 400, 1/15 at f5.6

Photo courtesy of a fortuitously-timed red light and a high seating position.

Gotta love the SR for allowing a 1/15 handheld shot with a 105mm lens while seated atop an idling 15 liter diesel engine.

This is a beautiful shot, Mike. Reminds me of some of Wong Kar-Wai's film compositions.

I love it. The low light captures the mood very well.

Can't believe that you shot that from a truck while at a red light! Both your eye and concentration are a lot better than mine. Narrow street?
Great picture.

It could not be better if you had posed it, outstanding.
