    This is only the second time I have done anything like this, so still a bit of nerves....however I did spend an hour or so on the bridge and in the market shooting whoever caught my eye.

    These are some of what I got.

    "Mohican" has a girlfriend who is still quite madly in love with him ... ;) Don't know the word for it in English but look at his neck ... He was happy for you to take his photo, right? Did you promise him the print? I like the pp in that one very, very much.

    I like them all.
    Some leave their "box" and are perfect in the "new box" at once... Wow.

    The lady in Photo 6 ... did you throw a lasso around her and blurred the background even further? Somehow it looks like it in that one...

    #2 is so perfect for me...love the color, the lighting and the comp...aptly titled too...It might sound like blind praise, but it struck a chord in me :sillysmi:


    lafoto...that'd be a "hickey" on "Mohican"

    :blushing: A love bite.....I gave him and others were possible a card directing them to my website and, told them if I get anything worth posting I'll upload. The lady in 6 ....No, it is very rare for me to do any processing on seperate parts of the pic....Firstly I'm not clever enough to see were selectively altering would make better unless someone pointed it out. Secondly I think I am too lazy for all the faff on. I may have over sharpened the whole pic too much to give that effect but it was shot at f2.8 and 200mm which also makes her stand apart from the background.
    Thanks.
    Just do it, going with someone helps but the more you do the easier it will get. Can't wait to go out again.
    Thanks again for the comments.
    Ken.
