50/1.4

You can hate on the PP if you'd like. It was taken during the middle of the day and I wanted to tone down the harsh contrast and give it a specific 'feel'.

edit: also I apologize for anyone offended by the background; I could lie and say I was going for a dichotomy between beauty and obscene but truthfully I didn't notice until post- I still like the image as a whole though.

Yes, but the girl so dull (and blended in with the background) and the paintings so in focus & colorful, I am not sure which is the subject - would try to "pop" the girl more if that is the subject!

That is a great scene and a cool move by the girl. I agree with Delatant, that she blends in with the background.

User 222 - I don't really go for flower shots but #2 is beautiful !

re. Johnny B Goode's shot - I thought the girl was drawn onto the wall and in which case it is very cool (has plenty of 3D pop) and I love the dichotomy !

^ I don't know why but for some reason I love the last one, the crop on the bikes is not something i'd ever think of doing but I think it works! What's going on in that first shot?

user222: I also think that 2nd shot is beautiful. Great work.

frezeiss - nice BW street.
nibutto - Love the series. Great PP.
Johnny B Goode - Great composition. I am not offended by your PP or the background. I really like the crack on the wall. Making a great composition. Somehow muted feel of the color is very nice too.
user222 - #2 is beautiful
pingflood - Nice texture and tonality

nice shots akul! btw, in the 1st shot, is that stray light in the bottom center?
some recent random shots using 35 1.4 wide open:

Thanks Reza, yes the center glow is coming from a street light which was illuminating the building.

Reza #2 is a gorgeous shot of Obi and kimono. Great PP as always

akul: the first one with the 35 1.4 really stands out. I think I like it more for the brick building behind the white stone one.

I believe this one is taken with the 35/2

Ooh, the detail in that middle shot is exquisite. What sorts of apertures do you shoot these at?

Thank you carsten .. in 90% of all my flower pictures, I use the f2.0 I go very rarely over f2.8
all these three pictures are taken at f2.0

Ah, I see now that you are using the 50/2 MP, not the 100. Yes, that lens does have an extraordinarily large depth of field in relation to its aperture value. I am still surprised you are not using more. Are you cropping?

Deer trail. 25/2

EDIT: I looked at the downsized image and it was scaled down by my gallery host a really crappy way. This is a little bit better, I think.

Johnny B Goode, Ronny - Thank you

nibutto - Nice color !

Johnny B Goode - I really like this portrait. Very natural. Good exposure.

Ronny - Good to see your work again. I am just blown away that you take those photos with wide open. Great shots. I am curious about the last one. It is a bit different from your palette. Sort of misty. Very nice, and different.

xtobolic - Brilliant series. I really like the #2, 3, 4. I probably like the #3 the most. Very tactile capture. Great shot.
MJHFIN- Nice detail of deer trail. I can count the blue berries ( )
