Lines and Shadows

This is another image from the 2010 Jersey City edition of the World Wide Photo Walk, taken with my Olympus Pen E-PL1, using the Pinhole Camera preset.  As I have previously explained, when you use one of this camera’s presets, it creates two copies of the image: a JPEG with the filter applied, and a plain image, in Raw (or whatever format you have in your settings) .  As with yesterday’s image, I did nothing to this image in post processing: no adjustments whatsoever. For comparison, a simple rendering of the original Raw image is below. You’ll notice that the filter creates a limited focal plane, adjusts the color and tones, and adds a dark vignette. These filters work quite well, and the only catch is you have to pick the right one when you take the image. If you’re happy with your choice, however, and like the results, it really saves a lot ofboring time in post.

  1. I like the final result. It has a nice old feeling to it that compliments the tracks rather well.
