I call this "Girl on bike" (shot with a6000)

Another great example of what can be done with the a6000 when in the right hands.

I was driving when I saw this lady on her bike. Managed to grab my camera and get this great image as I passed her. Now that's sharppppp!

Cheapo Sigma 19mm was my lens of choice on this occasion. (although since driving I never had much time to change lens lol)

I"m surprised you needed a lens at all for taking this 'Great Shot' in your very capable expert hands!

Keep on keeping on Neil.

Why do you continue to follow every post I make and pull it apart? It really is very sad Bruce!!

Who picked it apart Neil? I was complimenting you.

Why must you constantly post mediocre self aggrandizing posts?

And why, once we are asking questions, must you always respond to me?

Here's a pic I took with the A7r, which I think is a much more capable camera than the A6000.

Sharp indeed, (except annoyingly for the background for some reason) and it had nothing to do with capable hands but a very capable combo of camera and lens.

Love you Dude.

Nice selfie dude!

Background too "Busy" for my liking though. Try waiting or moving a tad before snapping the shutter!

nice shot, although the DOF is so wide with the 19mm, it is much easier to acquire sharp quick AF. It would be good to see tracking of a simialr subject say with the 50mm f1.8, as it will challenge the a6k more.

I agree.

A shallower DOF is much harder to execute especially with manual focus.

Here's a moving object shot with the Noctoloxu wide open at 0.95.

Focos was on the elbows

Shooting wide is a cinch to keeping things in focus, even wide open.

That is so true. Thanks for your kind words.

You need to learn photoshop. Background cleaned up in no time. Think a little more about this stuff Bruce. Just keeping it real man!

Hi Miro,

This was done with the Leica APO-Summicron-M 90mm f/2 ASPH.

Thanks Michael,

Yes, that's why I supplied the picture of the moving car with the elbow sticking out.

REALLY?

I though you wanted a dialogue, opinions.

I didn't realize this was a ShowCase for Neil.

Although you did open with what I thought was a pretty funny pretentious wink "I call this one Girl on a Bike", and your equally amusing "in the right hands" with an obviously mediocre snap. The fact that it was taken with a wide angle lens to show off the camera's AF capabilities was surely tongue in cheek. Wasn't it??

Surely you were jesting, and having some fun.

Heck, I always welcome everyone on my posts when I have something to say. Just posted a couple this week. Please, come along and add to it if you like. I'd love to hear your opinions.

Relax Neil, maybe go make your own blog and invite everyone here to visit.

This is a forum for cameras, lenses, photographers, opinions, fun et al.

Lighten up and Take care Neil

That is a cracking shot. Great subject and colour.

Can I ask where it was taken?

I think the OP's photo is a bit dull, both literally and metaphorically. The photo of the old man, though not particularly to my taste, is clearly much better both in terms of technique and composition.
