    I might have tried a face on shot, with the sun just behind his head (back light). Blown own background for sure, but more interesting. Maybe.

    thanks for the tip.

    A friend of mine has asked me to take some sappy pictures of her and her boyfriend. I think (hope?) that I can get some tips from you folks on how to shoot people, because I am really, REALLY terrible at it :p

    Ha, continuing in the spirit of people playing on the streets, and on the keyboards too :)
    This guy annoys the hell out of me sometimes. Every Saturday 10am straight he starts performing his blues, thus waking me up after a long night. :wallbash:

    Plus, are those bullet holes, or just brick chipping off? :)

    A rather large panorama I've been working on recently. The quality isn't great because I was standing on a boat wobbling around a lot and I was in a bit of a rush but here it is:

    Hehe thanks. I'm not totally happy with it, just found it hard to take good photos of the ice and sadly I didn't have time to play.

    Most epic. I misread the resolution, thought it said 17xx not 17xxx :jawdrop: But for being on a boat, I'd say it turned out pretty nice.

    All shot today (D700 with 35 F2D, 50 1.8D and the 85 1.8D i.e all the 'consumer grade lenses' ;)). Apetures were darn close to wide open i.e either wide open or f2.2. Please excuse the smallish thumbnails. I prefer sharing small rather than bigger pics. Bigger versions are at my www

    Was the second one with the 85 1.8? I absolutely love that one.

    Even the first one is very nice. :thumb:

    Taken today at Blickling Hall grounds, on my Olympus OM2n, with my 50mm Olympus Zuiko 1.8 with its Panagor Auto Macro Converter. Shot on standard ISO200 film. Scanned in with a Nikon Coolscan Filmscanner.
    Film always gives such lovely colours..

    first with 50 1.8, second with 85 :)

    ^ needs a focal point. Nice photo generally speaking tho.

    Cool. I could never get my head around primes. I miss the sharpness and sexy bokeh of the 50 f1.8 but I'm not too upset that I gave it to my sister.

    Is this better? I picked the earlier one because it was nice and sharp. The Tamron 17-50 is soft as snow wide open.

    Nice shot! A quick analysis; you have three layers in the image, foreground, midground, and background, and each layer has a different colour and contrast. An image like that is generally great and is pretty damn pleasing to the eye, like yours. Only really works for landscapes however.
    (and the beach hut thing provides far better focal point!
