Last week, you were tasked with taking photos of street art. Let's have a look at everyone's entries, shall we?


"This is Brute. I shot him with my new 50 f/1.4 @ 2.8 1/100 second iso 800 on my T2i. Then I took him into lightroom and for once pumped up the colors. Then some noise reduction and sharpening. I used my "new monitor" to take this shot, little disappointed it doesn't seem to have zebras, still makes focusing easier though. My wife says Brute has been here since we moved to Chillicothe which was back in '04 so who knows how long he's been here."

I'll take 911 RS for $5000:

"Not from this week, but hey! I'm a big fan of painted brick signs, and there are quite a few around me. This is the only one I could find a picture of as I've been out and about pretty much everywhere but home recently, and I just saw this mission a few days ago. Hopefully I'll have a chance to get out tomorrow, though I'm not sure I'll be in the mood for photography.

Sony a7, Minolta 58mm f/1.2, ISO 100, 1/160 sec, f/2-f/4-ish probably"



"My entries are two pieces of graffiti that I found in Centreville, Ottawa. The first was found at Bank and Somerset, the second was found in a parking garage behind the Centreville Community Health Centre. Photos were taken with my Nikon D70s with my 18-70mm lens and slightly edited (a bit of contrast and saturation, but not much)."


I park in a garage:

"I'm gonna put this one in from my recent mountain visit. iso 200, 1/2500 f2.8. Kinda the wrong settings, but it turned out ok. I was in a bit of a rush and didn't take enough time to double check them. brightened up the inside and did some colour and contrast adjustments to the mountains in capture one. voila!"



"I have no idea why this bicycle is painted white, but it's thought provoking and on the street.

Chinatown, around Spadina and Dundas. Used a Fuji X100, f/2.0, 28mm, the speed was 1/1000 I think."



"These two are not recent. :( But anyway, here they are.

The first is a less-than-stellar shot of an iconic bit of Austin street art that kind of inspired the Keep Austin Weird motto."


"The second is a bit of street art that is quite literally on the street. They are Stikman figures on the street outside the Texarkana, Texas post office, which straddles the state line between Texas and Arkansas. So, the figures are in two separate states.

Photos were taken with an iPhone 4S and edited on an app that is no longer available on the App Store."


Good job, everyone! And looking forward to next week's entries!
