(Olympus E-3, 14-54mm at 19mm (2x crop factor), ISO 100, exposure 1/80 sec @ f/3.2)
This shot was taken at the 2008 North American International Auto Show. The Mazda display had a video screen which showed a variety of images and I thought the juxtaposition of the mother/child as a backdrop to a high speed sports car was an interesting mix. Afterwards I noticed the gentlemen on the left side which I also think add something to the shot. The original was color and I converted it to black & white using Photoshop. The original shot looked like this:
I think the black & white works better. I find the color in the original image to be distracting. The only other processing done to this image was some minor curves work and a slight crop.
Comments and feedback welcome.
