About Another one of those doors in Florence. I found its look together with the old things very appealing. I don't know if the reflection should be somehow avoided. Any comments would be highly appreciated.

Oh, OK, now I understand you! Thanks a lot for the explanation, Gustavo! Yes, I think really that it was a cloudy day, and the door was also in the narrow streets somewhere where the direct sunlight doesn't have many chances. So, in order to have some stronger highlights I should use a bit overexposure, shouldn't I?

It turns to a nice little problem if one wants to avoid the reflection at the same time. In this case, I guess, underexposure might prove helpful. And so we have to contradicting things that make it very interesting, as the expsoure balance walks on a very thin line here.

Thanks a lot for making that clear to me, Gustavo!

Quiero decir que pareciese que tomaste la foto en un día nublado, con poca luz, lo cual da una imagen con pocos brillos...de todas formas debo reconocer que tu reflejo en el vidrio es muy interesante y acertado...

Un abrazo!

Oh yes, but be careful of flasks standing for too long in such a vitrine, Avi! You know, Faulty Towers:

- Am afraad, this wine is coooked!
- I just uncoooked it, didn't you see it?

Thanks a lot for the nice detailed comment, Gustavo! And it is so interesting to get even more input than about the reflection. So, what do you mean with "tones off"? Perhaps shifted, or too weak? If I remember well it was cloudy indeed, and so I guess you mean that the tones got less bright, but I'd be glad if you would explain.

Cheers!

Well, Dave, it could add something to the image, but it covered too much of the objects behind the glass, and so I think that even if accept that it should be there, it should be somewhere else and with less intensity.

I still have the (perhaps too bad) habbit of almost never using any polarizers because I have the impression that they alter the tonality too. But I also know that without them it gets really hard in such cases.

Cheers!

Thanks a lot for the nice detailed comment, Gary! Indeed, I myself have my doubts about the reflection too. It could have add something but it doesn't really do this way. I'd rather go for some different angle/exposure though, and try to minimize the reflection's visibility, since polarizers do what they should do, but they do also more things than that. I have the impression that they change also the tonality range of the whole image, and so I hardly use them.

The dots on the bottom of the door are splashes of sludge that got stuck and drained on the door. I find them good there for a more "real" view of the scene but I also see that they are too highlighted. So, in combination to weakening the reflection, I guess that I should go for a bit of underexposure here, which perhaps could also make the spots less prominent than they are now. But I am not as sure about that.

Thank you very much again and cheers!

Nick

Muy interesante, bueno el encuadre, buenos los detalles, los tonos sí un poco apagado, como si estuviese nublado.

Un abrazo!

I guess it depends on the purpose of the shot, Nick, if you want to get rid of the reflection or not. Sometimes they can be very effective, otherwise possibly a polarizing filter would help out and show the contents more clearly, as Gary pointed out.

I like this image very much with the exception of the reflection. Using a polariser would have helped here. Also the spots at the bottom are distracting, are they dust on the negative or actually on the doors?
Regards, Gary
