Number 13 and not on a roll, but maybe next week since Cincinnati's baseball opening day parade will be Monday. Always has been a fun experience, with a large variety of photo opts.

This one caught my eye as I was at a traffic light. Afterwards I drove around the block in order to park, get out of the car and capture a better shot, but he was nowhere to be found.

Isn't it amazing how a beautiful work of art can make you feel something?

I like him! S-


It is amazing, but confusing at the same time. Unexplainable effort wins every time. Thank you for the compliment Steve, much appreciated.

What a great character! You've proved once again that it is ALWAYS best to go on and get the shot, then look for better versions of it, rather than putting off a capture to wait for the perfect shot.

Thank you Minnie !!! Getting the shot first have not always been on my agenda, and because of it, I have missed so many along the way. Maybe I am now just learning from previous mistakes.

Dave, I don't think you could have improved on that one. Real emotion that might have been lost with a more studied shot. Very well done. Matt

Entering into week #14 of project 52, where I have several images to choose from, and while being indecisive on what to post I'll draw straws.

Having attending several Cincinnati Reds opening day parades, this one was a little different. In reality, it wasn't opening day for the Reds. The previous Thursday was, but was postponed until Friday due to weather. So they had the parade the following Monday. I'm not sure why all of the confusion, but it did create problems, such as attendance. I usually attend not for the parade its self, but to capture the spectators observing the parade. Although, I do take a break to catch a glimpse as I stroll the 1 1/2 mile route.

All of us are aware that society has made some changes since 9/11. I couldn't help but notice how security seems to have tightened and I do feel it is necessary. With that my image for this week is part of the security I witnessed. My processing is a little different as well. I had planned to go B&W with this, but decided to change it and mix it up since everything about this week has been nothing but change. I have post processed Cinematic Color Grading previously, but not often. This tutorial, Cinematic Color Grading tutorial is with PHLEARN and if anyone is interested here is the link to the tutorial. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aaMfMZEFetc

Cincinnati S.W.A.T. won the straw pull.

Excellent, Dave. I love the processing but have never even been sure what color grading is. I'll take a look at the tutorial and see if I can make sense of it.

PS - Post some of those others too! Start a thread on them!

Thanks Matt, your most likely correct. I appreciate your thoughts.

Thanks Minnie, I will start another thread with some of the others. As far as the tutorial, I really can't explain what the difference happens to be, but it is. PHLEARN speaks so fast and I find myself stopping between each step to perform the steps in order to keep up with him. If he walks as fast as he talks, then I will need another form of transportation to keep up, such as a car or bike. So I would say if you do attempt the tutorial, at least complete the steps for a better understanding and to see if the tutorial is worth another attempt. I'm not sure if this was even what I wanted out of the swat image, so something else may come at another date.

Dave, I am surprised they let you take the shot. But who would suspect a kindly looking man with a long beard who had parked his Harley around the corner? Is that a lady on the left? They are surely loaded for bear and more. Lethal stuff.

We live near a gun range where police and other forces practice. From a mile away the racket wakes you up if you sleep past 8. Would go deaf to be any nearer. Good study of people willing to expose themselves to danger. Well done. Matt

Matt, they were more than willing, but I was more grateful for the opportunity. I'm not sure about the person to the left. I had my suspension as well. May be the reason for the face mask? Thanks for commenting, I appreciate it.

I often visit Riverside Drive Historic District in Covington, Ky. It is a quiet, peaceful area, where folks can relax in the shade or sunshine along the Ohio River facing Cincinnati. Every visit I take notice, a statue of an African American reading a book on a park bench. I always comment to myself, "is this guy ever gonna finish reading that book"? However, I could not help but take notice that on this day the statued man had a visiter. The scene appeared odd and passersby also took notice. My first inclination to the posted image of week #15 was 'Imaginary lovers', a song by Atlanta Rhythm Section. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6Z-DQGqM90 Although, the image can be interpreted many ways, this is just my vision and interpretation.
