    Wouldn't it depend upon whose bum has been photographed?

    Thanks, Cheryl.

    Bit of a story to this shot: It's really only half blind I suppose. What I mean is, I took a couple of test shots (blind, of course) with the camera in full auto for one and in P mode for the other with the ISO set at 200 and using spot metering. Then I went in through the door on the right and asked Hans (that's the gent's name) to assist me for the final shot. We set the scene with Hans looking out the window (he chose his position himself and I asked him to stand at the angle he has in relation to the window). Then I set the camera for the P mode variant and took up a position in the corridor where I figured both doors would be in the frame and shot blind, holding the camera for a portrait shot somewhere about stomach/sternum level.

    Thanks, John. I played around with this for ages, cropping it this way and that and also straightening it. However, I just couldn't find what I wanted, so in the end I decided to do a little tidying up around the edges by using a 3x5 crop and to leave the heavy slanting alone: the impression I get is that the guy with the builder's bottom has caused the seat to fly up as he sat down :)
