Good stuff Alfie! Great processing too.
I'm in Japan too, and have been working as a photographer sporadically, mostly weddings, minor idoru CD covers, events, among other things, think we may even have mutual acquaintances here (El-Brandon, a wonderful and committed photographer) Good that you have kept your focus, that's the most difficult thing for me.
Good luck with everything!
Very nice portrait. I am not familiar with this lens at all, but it has a great (dare I say?) 'Noctilux', look about it.
Congrats on the win!
Dennis: And people blast Sony for having a kit lens that's too big for the NEX ... now there's a wrist strap that's a bath towel with a mounting plate sewn into it ! I think they should call it the "Linus" (in honor of the Peanuts character) - it's a camera strap and security blanket all in one.
A very clever idea...kudos to the inventor. From a cursory reading of the comments so far it would seem that no-one has actually used this strap, so, why judge?
What a lot of old women there are on this site. LOL
(unknown member): I love this 20 year old shot! That's peace in the big city for me.
Thanks....this is a definite favourite of mine too!
(unknown member): It's Pulteney Bridge, not "Putney" or "Pultney"...
lol...my bad. Thank god I'm not a copywriter.
Am kicking myself for only adding my comment at this late stage, when controversy has already been added into the mix. When I saw this photograph this morning, I wanted to comment, but left it. This surely is one of the most stunning landscapes I've seen on this forum, and I love it.
Many thanks for putting this up here, and good luck with taking similarly masterful photographs, in beautiful locations, in the future.
