    Thanks for the comments. I guess this confirms my office PC's monitor is crap!

    Glad it looks alright to everyone else....

    Thanks for the awards.

    I had had quite abit to drink that evening and the wife had banned me from taking any more photos that night.

    We were walking home and I looked backwards to see these two embracing.

    I figured it was one of those occasions to ignore the wife and stop to take the image.

    When she saw the image the next day that it was the right decision.

    Quote:Eyecatching. I'd be tempted to correct the verticals, so that it's setting the complete calm of a portrait-format architectural shot against the tension of the figure's stance.


    Thanks , would be a good idea. I was composing of the left pillar. Would be pretty easy to correct In photoshop

    Quote:You worked fast that day, Dan - and very productively!


    I Carried him back to the start of the jetty a couple of times just before he made it to the end.

    Quote:The evening light combined with the urban location is perfect for these images, Dan. Down low pov adds to the effect.

    I asked him, and he told me that he had no intention of having his haircut that day...

    Thanks. The reflectiOn is alot less brIght than the sun would be otherwise ,which makes the dynamic range perfect for this sort of thing - this required minimal processing on the highlights and shadows.

  • Cruising....

    Candid.

    I had a similar shot of a couple holding hands at this spot a few days before. The sun was still high in the sky but bounces lower off some windows casting the lOng shadows.

    Was looking for something similar when I saw this little guy entering the frame. Didn't have much time to compose mind. Got lucky as this was uncropped.

    Thanks. I know what you mean.

    I'd normally shoot in aperture priority wide open, or perhaps at f4 for this sort of thing to keep a fast shutter speed (the light levels are often changing and I have a lot more unusable shots due to camera shake than to depth of field).

    That said, later that day I was shorting in shutter priority at about 1/400 to get round this, with auto ISO set.

    The focus point was set once on the rear guys face using the AE/AF button, then I took a few frames based on that focus point. The autofocus isn't great on the Olympus though. I quite like the foreground being out of focus with the main subject sharp, although I see what you mean about the background maybe being sharper than the main subject.

    It'd be a lot easier using the viewfinder/autofocus on my D700, but then you can't discretely shoot from the hip with an articulating LCD on a tiny camera with that.

    Thanks for the comments

    Thanks for the comments. The hardest thing with two flowers shooting at f1.4-2 was choosing which bit of each one to get in focus.

    I've tried it in mono and it just doesn't seem to work - and I usually prefer mono

    Thanks very much for the award. The wife doesn't like this one. Know what you mean about the pose - I like the title. He's only 10 days old...

    Cheers, the other one was a abit of a grab shot whilst tired.

    This one was abit more thought out and involved a tripod.

    Cheers
