have been following CR for a very long time now. time to stop being a lazy arse and post something, for what it's worth.

Mark III / 135mm

nice first post!

I like the composition of this even though her head is in the center of frame the oof british flags and underground symbol kept in the top provide nice context and fill that space nicely

That's the first thing that came to my mind after I took the picture.

May I kindly ask what prompted you curiosity? It could help my Photo eye ball.

Thanks,

Hi...I guess I noticed the background images first...they're unique and "crazy".

I never noticed until I read this but comparing IE and Chrome side by side it is obvious.

Ha ha, tested this on IE both on my work PC and on my home PC, and both times the pictures looked different.  I'll try chrome at home and see what happens.

Peace! 8)

Don't Know if this is considered candid or not, but hope you enjoy nonetheless :-)

A candid portrait...i  couldn't make up my mind about whether to leave the other two young ladies in the picture or not, but finally decided it would make the image more interesting as a sign of the times.

I used to take lots of candid portraits with 600D + 70-200 f/4 IS but finally stopped. It is not really honnest to take pictures of people with such a zoom (equivalent of 320mm on FF).

Well, if you're doing it for personal shots, and not doing anything commercially (I'm guessing by reading your post you didn't talk to them and get a released signed)...what's the problem with taking these shots in a public place?

I think they look wonderful...thanks for sharing!!
