boston-1Leica M9 w/ Leica 28mm Elmarit

Exposure ISO 400 1/500s @ f13  

 

As you can see I made this shot as we passed Landsdowne St. and the legend sports bar the Cask'n Flagon near Fenway Park. I really wanted to give the sense of passing by this famous area in a car so I left the window up and left the rear view mirror in the frame. No need to focus with the lens set to infinity at f13 (in between f11 and f16). Without the person in the frame it would not have given the same effect as it does. After correcting color in Lightroom I pulled it into Silver Efex Pro and used the Full Contrast and Structure preset to bring out the reflections in the window and the clouds.

Exposure ISO 400 1/500s @ f9.5

 

This shot was done the same way as the shot above. I used the same preset in Silver Efex Pro to bring up the clouds and reflections in the window. I love the reflections in the window of the bar showing the buildings. The billboard just adds to the sense of driving around Boston as they are all over the place.

Exposure ISO 400 1/250s @ f9.5

 

This shot was made with the window open as I wanted to show city living without noticing the window or any part of the car. Apartment style in Boston. I used the tools inside Lightroom to correct converging lines and it worked pretty good but not really what I wanted. I did also pull it into Silver Efex Pro and used the Full Contrast and Structure preset for the desired effect.
