Recent shots.. DP1s

As internet is extreeemly slow here, especially the flickr site I will not link each shot as I normally do. That just took forever with that post before this one with the young girls. These are some mixed shots from Kunming and Dali – I really love life here, it’s such a pleasure to be back! Even if I had a little too many encounters with that washing room so far. Takes a little bit of time to get used. :)

All shots developed using SPP 4.1 and post processed using Lightroom 3.

Sunset in Kunming
Kunming is filled with scooters and they’re all electric. Just heard on the news that China just passed USA in electricity consumption – perhaps this is why? :D

Story
A very common way to treat English. This one is rather good too. Not too many mistakes.

Fixing that hair
Linn now has short hair. :D

Normally the guard lives in the little hut where cars passes by, but in this case it’s a barber store. Everything is possible here.

Searching for a job? Just write your number on the closest wall and you’re done! when you get one, go back and erase.. Easy? :)

I’ll be back.

About Carl Rytterfalk

Welcome to my blog! I'm Carl Rytterfalk, a swedish photographer who loves everything that is interesting in the world of photography. In 2002 I fell in love with the three layered Foveon sensor and has since then been an addicted user of Sigma cameras. Though I use Canon and Nikon as well. :)

    Nice shot!! thanks for sharing.

    ultimately all your pics here had me fell in love with foveon. i just recently ordered a Sigma DP2s (ordered from amazon, will get it in next month as i am from Malaysia and sigma-digicam pretty much nonexistence here), but still not sure if i could get nice images such as yours.

    Sorry to bother you, but can you share the way you resize & sharp photos for web?
    Thanks.

    Hi ManowaR!

    I do nothing extra – workwflow this time looks like this: First Sigma Photo Pro 4.1, prepare as much as I can / if the picture has wide dynamic range like sunlight and shadow, then I expose for sunlight and save as 16bit tiff – then post-process using Lightroom 3 and there I lift the shadow part and make final adjustments for colors. (often colors in a lifted underexposed area needs a puch) – I seldom sharpen anything in SPP nor in Lightroom. I add my little text as well from Lightroom and then save.. If you have focused correctly to start with then you should not need any extra sharpening unless you want to print. Printed pictures always need a little extra care from USM (Unsharpmask).

    Perhaps flickr.com which is where I put my shots sharpens slightly when downsizing for web? That could be the case.

    Carl, first congratulations to you and Linn. Surely your grandest adventure yet :) And as always, even in the middle of these most special days thanks for sharing great photos. This is somewhat left of center, but that t-shirt in the 7th shot… “Drum Dreams”… any idea what that is? Anime? Just a random t-shirt on a street shot? For some reason it is very interesting to me, not to mention the stabs of color mixed with the earth toned surroundings. What a treasure trove for a street photog!

  5. Bill C,

    It says, Drum Dream in the.. and there it ends because the one who made it just cut and paste from internet and had no idea what those words really meant. That’s so common here. You can sometimes find Swedish newspaper headlines on stuff because it looks cool.. (grabbed from the internet).

    I should get some of those t-shirts and sell.. they’re so cool! :D
