Hi,

Below please find some of my favorite shoots.

Your critiques and feedback is always more than welcome.

Cheers

Re: Back from Venice: Molto bellissimo!!

I like the shots of the woman and the one of the tables from above. Did you use a fisheye for a lot of them? For me those have too much distortion.

Leaving apart your portraits you have defaced the finest Western classical architecture with a fisheye. Aren't you ashamed of such an ignorance of architecture?

And as if it were not enough you had also defaced the Italian syntax in two words. If you have no will to raise to the occasion, give up. It will be better than  propagate sad notions across the Net.

Re: Back from Venice: Molto bellissimo!!

I hope you switched lenses and got some UNDISTORTED wide angle shots. Sorry, I'm not very fond of fisheye shots, especially of Architecture. Also, they all look overexposed by about 1 stop to me. It looks like you had a great opportunity with the sky being like a giant softbox to get nice saturated colors, unless under exposure is what you were going for. Hope you shot Raw. Just being real here.

I like the last two fisheye shots in particular: Effective target for that lens.

In one shot it appears that the lady is holding some white lenses: True? What are they?

In your gallery I think you have the same woman, dressed similarly, with snow in the image; where was that shot?  Surely not Venice.

It seems you took your favourite model with you...

... and some favourite lenses (like, very clearly, the fisheye... Although, in all honesty, I don't think the fisheye effect works very good on all of them.  Santa Maria Della Salute and the gondola look a bit contrived - it works better on the indoors theater shot.)

Any chance that you used your Nokton for some low-light mysterious-city-at-night stuff?

I think : stripy mittens.

Yes, I believe I recognize her too.  That is why I spoke of "his favourite model" and the Nokton.

(But that was an error, because he used the PL25mm F1.4 for those)

It does not answer at all, if you in a country only to pull its leg, with a travesty of its visual culture.

Do the clown in your own, if they let you.

Re: Back from Venice: Molto bellissimo!!

I don't like the fisheye stuff, it is not in harmony with the site. The first pic of the woman is super!
