The Gentleman

R10, f5.1, 1/125, ISO 125, JPG

This is one of my favorite pictures with the R10 but at the same time I wish I would have taken it with a better camera. It was not easy to get it due to him being across the street and the screen freeze and people and cars being in front made it even more difficult.
I had to process it quite a bit to get the desired result, the JPG smudging that Ricoh does is not nice and destroys any form of detail. Adding some noise to the pictures gives them at least a nicer feel and they seem more crisp.


  1. Excellent picture is almost as if it were back in time! :) Love these subdued colors.

  2. Really great shot cristian ... I really like it ... reminds me to the old French photographers

  3. Good lighting, nice composition.

  4. Thanks for your comments!

    I wanted to give the picture and old feel but at the same time preserve some colors. I desaturated the colors partly and used a Sepia filter with some vignetting and added noise to get the old look.

  5. I work in a hair salon.
    Very very nice. Easy to picture women patronizing the salon before work and after work for a date.
