    This months photo topic is "Explore the Subject" -- inspired by Caladina's 3 way suggestion, but with a little twist. Go out and pick a subject of your choice and keep photographing it over several sessions, change the lighting, shoot it from every different angle you can think of, maybe shoot it in a different locations. Then pick your favorite compositions and post them.

    Happy shooting!
    Again, the rules are simple:
    • Should be be using some canon gear , this is a canon forum after all.
    • Shot with the assignment in mind, go out and shoot something new don't dig up something from the archives.
    • and most importantly have fun.

    Galvany market; I shot them in RAW and with automatic White balance.

    Given the deviation of the colors, I have converted and edited the chosen photographs with various programs. Here are the results that I liked the most:

    1. Upon reaching the market, this photograph was the one that offered the greatest color deviation. For its conversion to JPG, I chose the one I did with Canon's software, Digital Photo Professional, and the skew and crop correction, with Paint Shop Pro. Is the combination that gave the most natural color.

    The second photo, is an internal view of the market, I did the conversion to JPG with Capture One and the editing and correction of the file, I did it with the Adobe CS program.

    The third I edited it with a free software which I sometimes use and whose results are quite decent, is the LightZone software, here I liked the result.

    And the fourth is another view of a very colorful fruit stall, which I chose from among all the editions, the one I made whith Capture One.

    José, this image reminds me of one of the streets in Hobart, here in Tasmania. Except we no-longer have zebra crossings.

    A nice series of images, José, they remind me of the big market in Melbourne. It has a unique atmosephere of noises and smells.

    Craig, thanks for commenting. In Barcelona the markets are smaller, as they are usually from neighborhoods, the central neighborhoods are from the same period of the late 19th century and early 20th century, which is why they have a similar architectural style. Perhaps the most famous, that of San José on the Ramblas, is the largest. In any case, the downtown markets are being reformed, and they are quite good after the facelift.

    IMG_1866.jpg I shot hundreds of these Hooded Mergansers, this November, and I think this one may be the best.
