Writing with Light

French Quarter Vespa

I just loved everything about this little scene… the green shutters, the moulding around the windows, the Vespa with the stuffing coming out of the seat. It was just yelling at me to take a picture 🙂

On a side note have you heard about HDR Tennis on Facebook? HDR Tennis is a friendly game where the administrators of the page (all photographers) work on the same set of brackets that is provided by one of the admins. The different versions are then posted and then the public gets to vote on their favourite version. The brackets are also shared  with the public who can download them, process the image using their own HDR tools and putting their particular spin on the final image. The image is then shared and voted on. Game 31 has just been posted and yours truly supplied the brackets this time around. The Admins provided some fantastic and inspirational final images. Check it out and have fun. 

I usually share HDR Tennis announcements and images that I don’t post on my site to my Edith Levy Photography Facebook page. If you haven’t yet come on over and “Like” my page.

    Cool scene Edith. That Vespa jumps off the screen. Excellent processing. I will have to look at the HDR tennis. Sounds like it would be fun.

  17. I’m a sucker for symmetry and this really appeals – the contrast f the perfect symmetry of the background contrasts well with the chaotic lines of the Vespa. Nice one, Edith.

  18. Classic shot, Edith. I like the composition and those nice shutters.

    I’ve followed HDR Tennis in the past and it is quite interesting to see the different interpretations and processing results. Nice that you supplied the brackets for this round. I’ll check it out.

  19. I have never been to N O but the shutters on this building is exactly what I would expect to see. Nicely contrasted with the scooter.

    Nice picture, the Vespa is not a Vespa but a Chinese copy. Real Vespa’s are much nicer to see.
