Sorry, I've just discovered the jive translator in one of the forums and thought it would suit this shot...
Translation: Great shot, I like the pose. The way the hand is posed to draw your attention and then lead you into the artist.
The depth of field works well.

I've looked at this a few times..I've not been sure whether I like it...I mean, it's a fantastic shot, just not my cup of tea. Congrats on the EC, I think it would make a great photo for his first single/album.

He obviously thinks so too! Wink

Fabulous shot. I've got it at home on the front cover of the Freelance magazine. You must be very proud!
I'm still learning photography, so bear with me if this is a stupid question. How come you got such shallow dof when you used f9? Is it because his hand was right into your lens?
carriebugg 15 65 England
20 Dec 2005 4:27AM
Thanks Paul for your comments - I'd love to be able to take photos like yours. With regards to my Fire sunset picture - I had actually used flash, but it lit up the green grass which, I thought, clashed with the sky and looked a bit weird - so I darkened it down again in ps!
