    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!

    i personally think with #2.. the backround should be in focus. or zoomed in on him more and backround more out of focus
     
  8. 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!
     
  11. 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!
