    Yes! I did a lot of reading last night about street shooting and it said tho telephoto lens sounds logical to snap pictures of ppl on the street without them realizing it, but wide lens with up and personal shot are much better way to do it!

    I saw your lens collection in your signature and those are what I planned to get... I didn't plan for that wide lens but since now it makes sense, I want that too...

    Did you sell off your kit lens? I don't see the point of keeping it if I have the same lens collection as yours... :er:

    Hahaha, it was at the National Monument, next to Dam Square in Amsterdam. People were having pillow fights there :p anyone can just join and start bashing those pillows. Goose feathers everywhere... it was fun (to see). I don't actually know who organized it etc... but fun things always happened around here hahaha.

    If I was to crop it I'd crop it like this.

    Hey, it looked good, maybe in B&W as well... I like your cropping... it gives a different feeling when I look at it... And that 'blurish' effect on the chair is nice... do you mind telling me why you decided to crop it like this, cos I like it too!

    The reason I did my crop was to remove all distracting details of my subject... :p

    Yea, I cropped it like this to get rid of stuff that are distracting, I wanted to keep the blue on both sides to show people that it is a bus, plus I like the colors.The steering wheel I kept to add more to the bus feeling, and to show you that he is the driver lol. Adds the right amount of DOF in my taste.

    Ahaaa...

    But he is a tram conductor (I think in US it's called trolley?). He's the guy who's going to stamp your ticket. And that steering wheel you saw, well.. it's the handle of a baby stroller :mrgreen:

    If you see closely, you can see a blond hair and some forehead there, haha.
    But thanks for your input!

    Oh , ok lol. I was thinking he was in a bus. I'd still keep my crop the same though. I like the depth of field it gives and subtracting the distracting areas
