I got my Q yesterday.
Here are 3 recent shots from today, a bit out of focus, i assigned focusing on the green button and didn't know that doing so will remove the focus function from the shutter release.
Lesson learned.
Your comments are appreciated

For some reason this shot is very disturbing for me.

Because it contains something you like to see, with something you don't like to see?

Yeah, the tilted horizon bugs me too.

Love the guy cleaning out his car floor (or whatever he's doing.. I hope not getting sick in there), and if you thought the one-legged man passing the woman in giant heels was disturbing, that blurry crotch-shot of someone who wears clothespins for jewellery is even more so! I think the use of color in that shot makes it doubly disturbing. Kind of an eggleston thing!

Thank you for your comments

Hahahaha
liked what you said about "that blurry crotch-shot of someone who wears clothespins for jewellery"
lol
I was trying to show what a grownup may do out of boredom, never come to my mind the side you pointed at ...

don't know to what extent being kind of eggleston can be considered a disturbing thing

Thank you again for commenting

What shows is that this shot has been taken in a rush...

In my humble opinion, what is disturbing is more in the emotional psychological side not related to the composition or to the artistic side.
It shows deprivation and envy.
The one-legged man is in the same frame with a young lady who is showing off the most attracting part of her body (her legs) and a guy in shorts (and his legs) using those legs for an outdoor activity...

It is beauty versus not so beauty, activity versus passivity
the possibility of action versus the inability, ...

In my opinion this picture is emotionally loaded.
It is beautiful as it makes the viewer reflect.
more fine tuning adding more sharpening and contrast and playing with shadows and light intensity will enhance this atmosphere.

Good work in catching this particular moment.

Heh, i'm not sure if i really need correct it this time. But i agree what tilted horizon is, most of the time, shame for the photographer beside when it was used with purpose(not on this shot).

I'm not sure if i even wanna know why exactly he wears them.

Thanks for comment. This is true, i think what even focus point went somewhere in the middle of them.
In same time, i'm glad what blur covered her face.
Don't really need a personalization in this kind of shot.

But i agree what was shot in the rush should be, sometimes, edited in more slow approach.

For me the choice of shopping bag for the guy in sandals makes it disturbing, because that pattern is soooo last century.

I like the shot of the guy digging for change under the driver's seat.
Tell me about your PP. I used to be able to get that kind of B/W contrast from LR3 but haven't quite figured it out in LR4.
Is this using the in camera filters?

Those were shot in colour, no in camera filters used. Later processed in LR 4.

I don't have a personal filter set yet as you can see from my pics. I just try to give every shot its special ambiance. I am glad you like this shot.
Do you have any comments on the other ones?

I like the first 4 set and gravitate toward the lady with the key on a rope.. I tend to like ones where the person is noticing the photog, or where they are doing something unexpected like the car digging.

The PP is excellent on all. Looks like the Q is in good hands, keep it up.
