Dancing drummer #3

The final shot in the series....you must be getting bored by now.

Don't worry, I have some more interesting shots from my outing with Skee at Portobello market on Saturday.

Never bored, Jide, always learning from you, so many thanks.

I like this drummer series, but this one seems to have a different 'finish' from the others. It's almost as thugh it's been over-sharpened, causing some digital noise or grain that the others don't have.

Whatever the new mono technique you're trying, it's pretty good. Wouldn't care to share it, would you? I'm hopeless.
Jide Alakija: I suggest you get the Lucisart plugin for photoshop. It's really good in improving the dynamic range of your images. Then a straight monochrome conversion will do the strick. I use teh H/S method. That's it honestly!

I can send you a PSD if you want!

I like this one and I have to say it is because of the grainy finish. It gives this picture an umph (sorry can't find the word for it). I would frame this and hang it up on my wall.

I really like this but...i think the image is a little too sharp; it almost hurts my eyes to focus.
I really like this pircture too. I love the facial expressions and how the space underneath the extended arm is filled with blurry images of people.
