At the same party you saw on silly sunday. The little girl was hanging on between two guys who were more or less sober... Dad was protecting her well don't worry.
I'll dedicate this to Chris (Slowsong) because she was feeling a bit oof .. this is me never taking pictures of kids ! It really helps to do something else. And since I don't have a clue about this (ask me to take a race car, a bird an insect a lizard or a monkey, even in a suit Smile ) all critique is highly encouraged.

Many thanks for your overwhelming echo to the chalkhill blue. Special thanks to Alan, Kate, Rich, Joline, Carole and Walter for the UAs.

oh yes: here is a question
What would you take to Malaysia? off next wednesday..
600mm? or the 200-400? Macro? a 55 1.2 or an 85 1.4? For certain the 24-70 and the 80-200 2.8.. but the 14-24 or the small old 18mm?
choices, choices... decisions decisions.

Excellent portrait Annette, both the original and the mono with look of an old image.
the girl's face and hair style suit that period.
V3 also a great shot - such a look of innocence.

Fine shot....


Malaysia - lots of street photography so something with a wide angle, but there's also plenty of wildlife....so a longer lens would probably be a good choice... 200_400? Enjoy Smile Smile Smile Smile

Good luck on the trip. You were the one who had the best advice when I was about to take off for Thailand. I'm so glad I had that f/1.8 50mm with me. Thanks again for that.

Very clever processing. V1 is the best.

As for what to take to Malaysia - the ones you leave behind will be the ones you need (one of my laws of photography) so take them all.

This is delightful Annette. Taken in obviously difficult light - but it's the sort of image that really suits grain. B&W was a wise move.
One problem - there's some banding across her right forehead, eye and cheek; looking at V2 I think it has probably arisen in processing the colour image rather than in camera, and b&w conversion has exacerbated it.

V1 all the way for me Annette, when we fly from this country we have to weigh our carry on luggage and max allowed is 5Kg, no way would I put my photographic equipment in the hold, I normally put the body in bag and a few bits and pieces, and my lenses in my pockets, so can get away with about four, the ones you want to take are very large, so unless it is different from where you are flying from you are stuck, or pay the exorbitant fees the Airline charge.

At first I thought it was an old photo ... Good work, Annette!Smile
I'd take the 24-70 for landscapes and street photo, 200-400 for wildlife and portraits and 85 1.4 for local beetles... Although I can see that your 200-400 is able to do macro quite fine, too...
Regards Valery
