Your shots are good. I especially liked the last image of what appeared to be an older woman in a subway near a tiled wall. It looked to be a fairly low light shot.
The portraits in B&W were fine. I suspect others responding to this thread would have preferred more directly applied light or studio lighting. I just took a second look and these are fine. Nice results.
I have my eyes on one of these lenses right now and have an opportunity to buy one in just a few days. The only thing that has me hesitating are the ongoing rumors that there might be a newer (though no doubt more expensive) version with Image Stabilization.-- hide signature --
Thanks Marco and others,
The b/w shots were done to a brief, so they carry the limitations a commercial assignment imposes on you. They were done for Lebara mobile, a pan european mobile company. The shots were used for outdoor/billboard and in-shop posters. If one of you ever buys a Lebara recharge pack, you will find these on the packaging also. They are using the shots on their website also.
The old woman shot wasn't part of the campaign. I used to click some street in the evenings and its from there. Will process more when possible.
135L is by far the best lens that i have used for portraiture and street. You don't have to wait for IS version. That won't help in street, and portraiture.
