Looking over Week 42 and 43 there Howard, I have to say that one of the highlights of the Photo150 challenge has been your images from Peru.

That Machu Picchu Overview shot in black and white looks amazing. What a sight! Have you considered doing it in a sepia tone with a white vignette? It might give a sense of the age of the structure.

Thank you for the feedback, Wētāpunga - much appreciated.

I took a lot of photos at Machu Picchu using the camera's Rich Tone Mono setting, and I rather liked what I was seeing on the camera LCD at the time. My enthusiasm for toning waxes and wanes; I will experiment with duotones in Lightroom sometimes, but purposeful vintage looks, I'm not so sure. That said, Silver Efex Pro has an effect that matches your description ...

I posted more from Machu Picchu in Open Views here, and I plan to do a second set soon.

Week 44 Theme 1: Peru trip, May 2013


Day 14 Street life
Date Taken: 2013-05-24 12:34:29 | Camera Model: NEX-7 | Lens: E 30mm F2.8 | Focal Length: 30 mm | Mode: Program AE | Aperture: f/8.0 | Exposure Time: 0.003 sec (1/400) | ISO: 100 | 35mm Equivalent: 45 mm

Now we are back in Cuzco for a couple of days before returning to Lima and flying home. There are lots of streets to explore, with everyday life on them.

I notice that I'm using the Sigma E 30mm F2.8 lens as my go-to lens for walking about - light and inexpensive, and much smaller than the 18-55 I was using elsewhere on this trip.

Week 44 Theme 2 ultrawide aspect ratio


Festival masks
Date Taken: 2013-05-24 12:44:39 | Camera Model: NEX-7 | Lens: E 30mm F2.8 | Focal Length: 30 mm | Mode: Program AE | Aperture: f/4.0 | Exposure Time: 0.017 sec (1/60) | ISO: 1600 | 35mm Equivalent: 45 mm

It's back to Peru for my ultrawide aspect ratio shot this week and here are some Peruvian Festival Masks. We were in the Cuzco / Machu Picchu area for the week of Whitsun and there were a number of parades and processions where people wore these masks in I think what is called syncretism - the taking over of older beliefs with christian meaning.

Masked festival dancers
Date Taken: 2013-05-25 20:13:37 | Camera Model: NEX-7 | Lens: E 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OSS | Focal Length: 21 mm | Mode: Program AE | Aperture: f/4.0 | Exposure Time: 0.125 sec (1/8) | ISO: 6400 | 35mm Equivalent: 31 mm

And again back to Peru for this night shot of festival dancers outside Cuzco cathedral; it was the week of Whitsun and I think some local festivals are celebrated at this time.

Good choice for the wide crop on the Harrier, I like Masked festival dancers, I wonder what happens if you turn up the saturation/vibrancy? I think more color would give the background more definition.

Thanks, Paul.

I tried adjusting the colours, but I think the streetlighting becomes more pronounced, defeating the object somewhat

Week 46 Theme 1: Peru trip, May 2013


Day 16 Museo Mate
Date Taken: 2013-05-26 16:28:03 | Camera Model: NEX-7 | Lens: E 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OSS | Focal Length: 27 mm | Mode: Program AE | Aperture: f/6.3 | Exposure Time: 0.006 sec (1/160) | ISO: 100 | 35mm Equivalent: 40 mm

On our journey home from Cuzco we spent a night in the Miraflores suburb of Lima. Museo Mate is a gallery/museum devoted to the work of Mario Testino and one of the major themes on display was Alta Mode (https://www.mariotestino.com/photography/personal-projects/alta-moda-5/), a series of portraits of people from the Cuzco region dressed in local and festival attire.
