Sounds a little like "I am only beating you because I love you"

FWIW, I agree, Paul. I like your shots very much in general, but I think that with people, and possibly location, you would benefit from pushing yourself harder in some chosen direction. You appear to working within a comfort zone.


One can see it that way but still, kind words will not improve your work. It is always nice to get approval but to get further one must get negative comments as well. Given that Paul lives in one of the greatest cities in the world, knows how to use a camera and has gear that most dream of the possibilities are there for sure.

I always appreciate honesty and suggestions on improvements and I hope you do to Paul.

All the best

Andreas

That is called 'tough love' .....

I don't think anyone feels happy when faced with criticism...
But, I do appreciate your intention....

Get a T shirt printed which says "I Photograph the Most Beautiful People in the World"

(Probably you will then have the opposite problem of people jumping in front of your camera )

I like your shots.. don't change them.. They are your own style.. Don't let anyone else try to impose their style on you.

Look good, Paul. Question: didn't you have all your Contax N lenses converted by Conurus? How are you using them on your N digital then, or did you buy second copies of them? :o

I've converted them, and sold them, and bought again....
Two of them are in Canada right now... 17-35 and 85.

I bought few more lenses for Contax N Digital as well....
