if you look at pic #1

you will see the halo outline around the drummer, i used to post process heavily and get that all the time

over time i started to dislike it

so my personal opinion is if you start to see said halos, back off
Thanks for the advice. I did not notice the halos.

IMO, the originals look better... quite strong, in fact.

Xavier, judging from the PP style, you might consider trying texture layering. You can get the same style without the "overcooked" look.

Actually, I was after an old nostalgic look, but obviously failed. That's ok, I will try again. Thank you
For the vintage look, try traditional emulsions like Plus-X, Tri-X, FP4+, and HP5.

Javier the originals look better more natural. That is easy to see. Let film be film. Those digital filters are to make digital files look like film.

On the subject matter shooting the homeless is a tough stretch. Especially a full frontal image like that. It is just to static forced in a way. If they are looking for money try asking if you can take their image for payment. Then you can really take his image close up. He could have held the cat or something.

Street performers are looking for payment to as well. I like the street performer better. I think you should have fully framed the women in the image instead of the cart to the right. Her engagement with the performer is much more interesting.

Keep shooting film. I agree with Stevepedia. Tri-X has something special.

Thank you for the comments and the compliment on the originals. I liked the originals from the beginning, but was trying some experiments.

This is very good advice and I had already decided to do this.
