A couple of images from yesterday (early to late) evening's walk through Boston's harbor area.

#1 Not Penny Lane



#2 Having the evening sun as an accomplice



#3 Happy hour



#4 Bridge talk



#5 "7"



#6 Bokeh and balloons

Sony A7RM2 with Leica M-Summicron F/2.0 50mm: #1, #2 Minolta Af F/2.0 100mm: ##3-6

C&C always welcome! Thank you for viewing!

Edit: Sorry for the strange title, but I thought the images would not point to Boston as a location, they could be taken elsewhere (not everywhere).

Very rich colour.
But I think you quite overdid the clarity and tone compression. I can see the artificial halos on the lamb posts & handrails of #4 and the unnatural doughnut bokeh of the last photo.

great set, well spotted. I would've liked to see a tighter, portrait composition on the figure with the strong shadow in #2; I don't think the left hand figure and the extended traffic add to the composition.

Lovely glimpse of Boston in glorious technicolour.

Thank you very much for your comments. And I have to apologize for the severe crime (in my own view) of oversaturation of colors. I am currently traveling - and the non-calibrated display of my old laptop computer misguided me. I will try to heal that after my return.
As to #2: I have cropped it, but only cautiously. A heavier crop IMO would have removed the street photography character. It's just not that easy to focus manually with an old prime and optimize the composition at the same time (give me a zoom, please!). On the other hand: Using MF primes just teaches me another lesson in composition which I would not like to miss.

I also think the lady and her shadow were a great catch!
for some undefined reason I love '7' err #5!
but all are great!!!

I'm particularly taken by #2. Perfectly lit

Very nice glimpse of Boston, Harald!

My favorite is the abstract 7! Very nice composition! As you know we Dyxum members like the number 7! #6 is interesting! I actually like the contrast! Over saturated color? Maybe, but it works and I don't know if I would change it. #2 and 4 are very nicely composted. I echo the nice shadow of the lady with the pink hand bag. Was she hiding her face from your camera, or the sun? I like photos like these because they are kind of story tellers! Great work as usual!

Hope you have/had a nice time in Boston. Been there and to the harbor.

Kind regards,

Kelly

Excellent as always Harald. I envy your productivity - that's a fine bag for one evening's work.

I am not looking on a reliable screen but #2 looks brilliant to me. I see other shots within it but this one, with context, is beautifully done. The 7 is very cool too.

Thanks a lot for your kind comments!
I am really looking forward to see the colors of the images on my home computer's screen. Currently I am switching back and forth between my laptop and my smartphone. At both screens the colors are obviously off.
