It is a method of simplifying a scene. I am looking to simplify my images as much as possible by isolating the subjects against uncluttered clear backdrops while at the same time retaining a sense of the environment in which I found them.

    alternatively, if you use a fast shutter speed like on a smart phone, you will get a crisp sharp photographic looking photo. long exposure takes out the sharpness and brings in a painterly somewhat saturated look.

    Been away for sometime, catching up on on the wonderful images.

    I was in west Texas this past October on business, found some free time to visit Monohans Sand Hills.
    A few pics taken with the I phone:

    Let's see how this works...

    Regarding the face image above; a few of the old timers may recall the face on Mars image that NASA captured with Viking I in 1976,


    well turns out I discovered a similar one on earth as I was trudging through the sand. (for scale the "face" is roughly 4 cm long)

    "Waves in the Sand"

    amish on train to san diego. It's a candid street photography and I wasn't able to get the perfect settings, combined with the mother was aware of me and trying to move away. Nonetheless, it came out ok by Tony Walton, on Flickr

    amish on train to san diego. It's a candid street photography and I wasn't able to get the perfect settings, combined with the mother was aware of me and trying to move away. Nonetheless, it came out ok. It was too rushed to get perfect settings and compose, then again that lends alot of authentic beauty to street photography

    I think that you did nicely, Tony. I really love the effect of street photography.

    This picture has a nice look to it. The off-centre pile of books in a dark part of the room is appealing.
