Very interesting explanation. Nice shot.
Amigo, the small secret lies in the selection of the lens :-), and this is about as simple as it could possibly be. Expensive 17-50 Canon has too transparent and contrasty glass, and it will blow highlights no matter what you do. The same with Leica glass ( my previous experience with Panasonic-L1 ). So, for hardcore sunny shots I would use long zoom lenses like 18-105 or 17-200 with tons of glass, and consequent light losses, whereas in poor light environment 17-50 would be right on, oy !
Hello Eldar and Vera. I am a real sucker for these sgtreet shots in the hot sun, where you have captured the contrasting shadows upon the coblestone streets and tiled roofs to create a picturesque 3d effect. And I am amazed, once again, how you were able to maintain such good exposures with a relatively inexpensive camera. Of course you, o evil one, will boast of the Nikon superiority over Canon.... but still, some credit has to go to Vera, the "Photographe Naturel." Zy gezundt amigos. Michael.
