Old Woman


Another strong image today. An old lady gathering something from the bin. This is Sydney’s Pitt Street Mall and she is there almost everyday.

The effect you see here is colour burn. The lady and the bin were selected (as closely as I could) than I have reversed the select mask and burnt everything. This brings her and the bin into first plane. With the original image duplicated into new layer I have created a noisy image – close to old 400ISO film. Merged this with the underlying image at 67% opacity.

As always, click on the link or the thumbnail to see the full photograph of the old woman.



SONY press release:

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 1, 2006 –Sony Electronics today announced a GPS device that puts your pictures on the map.

Using time and location recordings from Sony’s GPS-CS1 GPS device and the time stamp from a Sony digital still camera or camcorder, photo buffs can plot their digital images to a map and pinpoint exactly where they’ve been.

The 12-channel GPS unit is 3-½ inches long, weighs two ounces, and is sold with a carabineer to easily attach to a backpack or a belt loop.

“Whether you’re traveling to the Seven Wonders of the World, or just wondering where to buy your next house, our new GPS device can track your journey,” said David Johns, product manager for digital camera accessories at Sony Electronics. “Adding a geographic context to your digital images helps organize and make use of your photos in entirely new ways.”
