    Haven't been shooting much as some of you might know. I feel like such a nub with my photography these days but that aside I have shot a bit (read: a dozen or so frames) over the last week. It's a start. :D Here's a couple.

    I love the guys face in the first shot. The fist is a little overexposed and is has a little bit of motion blur that I find abit distracting but overall i really like the image.

    The second shot... looks like they're reminded of something they've been missing for quite some time.

    I really like the first shot, I think it's fantastic! I actually prefer the motion blur. It would look a lot more posed (in a bad way) if there was no motion blur.

    The lady in the second shot doesn't seem to agree with the contents/taste/texture of the sausage she just chewed and swallowed.

    Love the captured emotion :thumbup:

    ty ty all

    x, is this a gutter shot? the sausage one? or not street enough?



    if it is a 'little' overexposed then i didn't push it far enough. original is well exposed. i went high key to remove focus of background and centre it on his face. thanks for the feedback.

    Love the first one, print it. The eyes are great and the subject movement gives it integrity.

    Second one, bit busy. Less DoF would have been good, but I love the expression on the woman's face!
