  #190 Low Light Photography
Entry 4 of 25
   
 
Hoping for a Customer       ©2017 aoc46
Panasonic DMC-LX100       4th place, 122 points
1/100s, f2.8, ISO 250, ?, Aperture Priority, Spot, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Global and local exposure adjustments during RAW conversion. Some local clarity enhancement (darts). Crop, resize, sharpen.       Extra Info: As evening wears on at the village festival, business gets slow for the pop-the-balloons man. He did better earlier, while the kids were still around.

    This was my #1. Lots of great contrasting subjects, well shot in low light.

    The dim lighting and the man's expression really set a mood here. In my favs.

    Well captured. I'm not sure if this is sad or sinister. Something eerie about a kiddy-attractive stall in the darkness. In my tt.

    I really like the atmosphere you have captured here. It's a great portrait of the balloon man with all his trappings. High in my pics.

    I really really like it. Nothing I would change. Wonderful interest, subject, lighting, low light.

    For those (like Qixil and others) who are wondering, alis nocturnis lives in the same rural French village where I've spent the past several summers,
and apparently we had similar thoughts about our entries.

This chap has brought his darts-and-balloons concession to our August festival for as long as anyone can remember. No one knows his name; he's just referred to as "Le Gros." With a little knowledge of French, you can probably guess why.

    Great example of low-light combined with "street photography". You have captured the weariness of the man perfectly.

    I really like this. Fits the theme perfectly. I love the juxtaposition of all the happy prizes in bright colors and the grumpy looking man surrounded in darkness. Probably my #1.
