1Dx 85f/1.2 L II, Shot @ f/5.6 & 1/160th ISO1250


Once again a subtle use of light to produce an atmospheric picture. I particularly like the way you've allowed the two people to lie on the extreme rear plane of focus, giving sharp foreground. I presume you've focused on the slab of meat or even the apples.

I'd be interested to know what time of day it was taken.

Hi Sporgon, around 0730, it had been raining & the Sun only just came out, this Market I shoot at a lot as it's inside an old Bamboo Structure so the light seeps through holes in the roof, after about 0800 the Sun is up to high and the Light doesn't slant through the roof as well, and everyone smokes like there's no tomorrow, and for some of them, there's probably not. I focussed on the Apples trying to throw everything else a little more into the background and to deepen the shadows.

Careful with them smokers, eml58!  Nicotine sticks to the gear and will deteriorate their value faster than all those safaris you go to!  :)  Besides, we all know second-hand smoke is just as bad!  Another great shot...remarkable colors...they paint the mood of the photo!

Thanks Dwight, I admit it's healthier on Safari, and I generally buy these Guys Cigarettes so I'm Guilty of contributing to their eventual demise, but it's all in the name of Art, so it's Ok.....Well, Maybe not, but I cant resist an opportunity.

Hi Bornshooter, it's a great Lens, when it's treated right it's about as good as anything out there, I find I prefer to focus (when I have time) with Live view with this Lens in Particular. Only other Lens I think has the precise sharpness is the 200f/2, although the 300f/2.8 Version 2 & 135f/2 are close.

I shoot in RAW so everything goes through LR4, I sort out the whites & Blacks plus any White balance tweak in LR4 and crop here as well if necessary, head into Photoshop CS6 for Levels, Brightness adjustments and any localised adjustments to lighting, contrast through Layers, Off over to On One Perfect Effects 4 for adjustments to such as Vignette, sharpening to eyes & any localised colour adjustments, then back to Photoshop for overall sharpness. I convert to B&W mostly in NIK's Silver Effex Pro 2, and I sometimes use On Ones Perfect B&W, I take care of Noise when required in NIK's Dfine 2. The only other software I use is Filter forge 4 when it's raining I'm bored and I just want to mess around with an Image.

The attached pretty well went through that process, excluding Filter Forge, B&W conversion in NIK's Silver Effex Pro 2.

Sharp Shot, you're new here as I relatively am.  I must say that your photos and demeanor are worthy of emulating.  You have just instantly become one of my most admired photographers on this forum.

The 600 (I don't have one and don't intend to own one) is just out-of-this-world!  The sharpness of the lens is as expected and the OOF area on those images are just perfect!  You absolutely hit the nail on the head with your focus point/s!  Keep shooting and keep sharing!  Thanks again!

Dwight,
Thank you so much for your complement.  While I had been following CanonRumors for a long time, it was Gary Sample's magnificent eagle and other shots that convinced me to begin posting.  There are many really great photographers that post on this site.  We all benefit from each other's postings.
