Love the important attitude of the boy carrying the tray, caught at the right moment and the little chap in the back just completes this. Just stunning.

it's the 50mm at 1.8 (or so) again...after the kitlens said good night, every image had to be taken at wideangle or zoom drove me crazy a few times (i missed some good ones Sad), but guess it trained me to look for "50mm" scenes

thank you guys, appreciated

your level has been constantly very very high recently. This one is wonderful. The shallow depth of field almost makes that plate fly out of his/her hands, speeding towards us. Love it. And don't underestimate what happens to your photographic eye when you're confined to the length of a prime lens. Prime lenses are incredible sharp, tend to be fast, and walking around with that same frame in the viewfinder for a couple of hours makes you very quick in recognizing scenes that are waiting to be captured by you. I work with prime lenses only and can honestly say that even without camera I can spot a 45mm and a 21mm (my favorite lenses) scene in a split second. When I work with the other lenses, the 90mm especially, I find it hard to find good scenes. Stick to prime for a while! Bert

Only a few more India shots left, then you'll see the level drop quickly lol

Cheers for the prime lens advice Bert
Thanks Ollie and Nic

right... blame it on India Sad
this series of yours should have received a lot more attention and recognition. Very disappointing Sad

This is fantastic. The shallow dof really draws your eye into the scene - towards the boy carrying the 'silver platter' and onto the little guy sitting on the floor in the background. I was in the same situation as you when I got rid of my kit lens in favour of the 50mm. It's true - you do tend to think more about the shot when you don't have the zoom to fall back on.

you just want to go and walk down the ally.... the little boy at the back creates a brilliant balance to this.
