    I was experimenting with using plants and other nearfield objects to provide framing and I ended up with some photos that made it look as if I was spying on people (well in truth I was kind of but how else do you get candids). I had to focus manually as the auto focus was getting thrown out by the nearfield stuff, but it's given the photos a nice soft look IMO

    Anyway here's my favourite, there's a story in this one.

    I think doing this kind of photography is going to get me into trouble sooner or later ;)

    Slaphead, may in fact describe what you might get:sexywink:
    I like the outcome, especially for the fact that you achieved it in-camera.

    Not entirely. The BW conversion, contrast, etc was done by software, but other than that nothing was done to alter the image.

    Thanks, I always enjoy your images :thumbsup:

    I love it. The composition , the DOF, the texture and the B&W conversion are spot on. Often having the foreground out of focus and the subject in the background can be very distracting, But your blurry foreground perfectly frames your subject. Well done.

    Thanks for the comments and the "bump" Ryan. I was quite surprised to see this one is back on the first page.
