    Urban nature

    Every body has their own subjects to think off. One of mine is the interaction between people and their environment in the cities. Special how they introduce nature in an urban environment. I don't mean the organized nature but that what's added by the individuals. In some old areas of Amsterdam it's quite strong, in cities as Paris you hardly see it.

    A so called "geveltuin", "wall garden".

    If this subject is liked I'll post more examples. It's going to be hard to produce different images after a while.

    The second picture is a bit off the focus, you should find a good object to point on. Great pics btw!

    Maybe that lens is tending to get fractionally soft at the edges, George. The centre areas are perfectly sharp in all these images including the far distance with #1.

    Good compositions with what looks like difficult exposure conditions that have been well handled.

    I did post a wrong picture. This one was just out of the camera. This one is corrected. Just the white point, contrast and a minimal sharpening.

    I hope you can see a difference.

    Yes, definitely a slight but noticeable improvement with the latest image, George.

    I've been looking to the picture to figure out what softness was meant. If you mean the street tiles by example thats due to a limited dof, f6.3 70mm and a low point of view. I've to check the distance but I think about 3m.
    The lens is a 28-70 2.8D, the predecessor of the 24-70 2.8 of Nikon. Many people think in some way even better as the latter.

    With the previous version, George, the image edges and particularly, cycle, steps and door on the left together with the door frame on the right side didn't seem as fully sharp as the centre area, although not exactly out of focus either. But with the edit these areas have nicely sharpened and seem to have increased in contrast as well.

    I think I can explain that difference. A 70mm FF, f6.4, 70mm and a distance of about 3m gives a dof of 69cm, 31cm in front and 38cm behind.
    I've more pictures with this subject.

    Looks like it's standing here for a while. But no flat tires yet.

    Perhaps someone has lost the padlock key?

    Just a thought, George. Lose about half of the wheel on the right?

    I don't clone.
    Beside that the topic is urban nature. There's a lot to see if you focus on it.
