Just had a look at Flickr - someone should have told Austin Mitchell how to dress and behave appropriately!

Like the third best. A lovely subject.

All excellent, but the 2nd stands out IMHO- great impression of spontaneity & intimacy. (BTW- agree with Gamka- what a plonker poor Austin Mitchell looks)

Two and Three for me.


Glad you agree about him. Looks as though he has just rolled out of the pub after a liquid lunch!

But you've come away without any topless shots to sell to the Italian magazines...

Nice shots looks a bit like a younger Kenny Dalglish in the background of the first one
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.

It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera… they are made with the eye, heart and head. Henri Cartier-Bresson
Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Nice shots. She's very photogenic and remarkably easy on the eye.
Best wishes,

Andrew

The third is my favourite and also appears to be slightly sharper than one and two... Good work!

Number two is a crop and she was also turning her head rather quickly so its actually slight motion rarther than focus, it was shot at 5.6 hence the coat and hair being sharper.

One was manual focus
