Nothing fancy, two quickies from Amsterdam last weekend:
And this one:
#2 reminds me of Truman Capote, #1 the man bike is hilarious
What do you mean "nothing fancy"?
Number one is a great shot! There's more character in it than any movie poster, and it's not even faked!
Both very nice. I prefer #1 of the 2.
Both are great. I really like the first.
#1 is awesome!
i personally think with #2.. the backround should be in focus. or zoomed in on him more and backround more out of focus
Thanks everyone for commenting - and I appreciate that you wondered about "nothing fancy." What I meant was that they're pretty much straight out of the camera. I did the B&W conversion, and cropped one of them, but that's about it.
These are really nice. That first shot is a classic capture. I liked how you framed the bottom with the chess pieces. Did you shoot these with the M8- if so, what lens did you use? Just curious.
the expressions on the faces in #1 really makes the shot!
Nope, this was my Epson R-D1, with a 35mm Ultron f/1.7, a small little walk-around lens. The camera's sensor crops at a 1.6x factor, making this a quasi-50mm (56mm) lens. Well, sort of.
Pleased to hear you like them!
second that. only thing that bothers me a bit is the knee of the sitting man kinda "sticking" into the picture
