Had a lovely evening at a freinds barbque the other evening, and Anthony and was sat with us for the duration of the eveing, imbibing lots of sangria and other naughtiness.
I had the 50mm F1.4 and 5D so was demoing the camera to people by getting lots of shots of him whilst he was talking
Here's one I really like - it's got the pipe, the hand gesture and shows the passion with which he talks. He's a lecturer in medieval history - visiting from Australia.

One hand sharp for making the point, one soft for the finer tuning. Like this one a lot.
Love the eyes Ade, good capture.
Wonderful character study.
What an amazing character and capture Ade. It works so well in mono. Unlike Moira I'm not quite so sure about the soft hand, but I remain very impressed - I feel that I want to engage with him!
Great portrait. Steve
Fantastic, think the DOF works well.
was at F1.4 the whole evening
If you've got it, flaunt it
I bought a 1.4 about 3 months ago, and I've only had it out of the bag once..this has inspired me to use it though..cheers Ade!
Oh, and congrats on the HC
they're little buggers to use Phil - so many shots of his his being sharp yet his eyes blurred... and he didn't sit still either, so a little movement and it's burred.
but they're small, discrete and the background and natural vignetting looks ace when wide open
I nearly started to get fast primes... then saw they were all over a grand now and decided against it!
This is brilliant, right down to the pouch in the forground. Intensity, energy and poise all in the same shot. DOF is perfect and the moving hand adds dynamism to the story he is telling.
i came back for another look and youve got hc, congrats
Superb his eyes are amazing, you have captured them brilliantly.
Timing, - all about timing.. terrific shot.
Considering the aperture, excellent focussing. Congratulations on the HC award.
what a great photograph... yeah, very hit & miss with the lens am sure but when you get one like this...well..
Got the mood just right, and capture the essence of the time
Although most of your shorts are very good technically Ade, they lack emotion.
This one`s loaded with it, very good indeed.

Now play nice together challenge team and critique team Loooking at your profiles there is a real diversity of typical subjects and equipment types and both are great in their own way - remember 'Cartridges' on 2 Jan 2009.
Loved looking at both you gallaries- cheers.
Not a dig at you Ade, I`m a fine one to talk
More than likely 90% of all pictures uploaded here or any other site that are technically very good lack emotion.
I'll let you off paul
Emotion is something I don't do in real life, so it's probably never going to come through then lens either
I met a business advisor today who was a huge photography fan, and he was impressed with the technical side of my work too - and he's going to organise some exhibitions for me.
Slighty different tangent...
i think to really understand how your work is viewed, you need to step away from sites like this where you blend in and get an outsider's input. Here we're swamped with really good work that you get lost in the masses - today he came to an office I'd furnished with 20 prints, had been looking at them before we met, and from the very first moment we shook hands, I knew the images had done the trick.
You can just end up thinking you're "ordinary" on here - for example, with the car thing, I'm only comparing my shots against Ambient Life, which is ridiculous really - he is the pinacle of the industry with yonks of experience and the backing of Hassleblad, big budgets from luxury car manufacturers. I'm a bloke with a 5D and 3 speedlites and no budget - but not bad results considering
I did start to see the bigger picture today, was good

Well done, its a funny old world
Earlier this year I had stuff appear in papers in France, Germany and Scandinavia, all in the same week.
The few I put up here went largely unnoticed
