I like it. Nice DOF. Was it a 50mm 1.7 ? Definitely not too dark.   

It was with my jenna 50mm at 2.8 on my alpha 700. It was colour, just thought it looked better in mono. Thanks

@ NIKO: nice muted colors but it looks like she didn't want her picture taken

@ wolfgerb: that's a mighty strong portrait, usually I'm not too fond when the chin is chopped off, but here it doesn't bother me too much since you get fully drawn into his eyes and gaze.


Here's one from me from last week: Enjoying a live jazzconcert in the sun


A700 + 80-200/2.8

thanx pegelli for your comment.
I understand your point made.
thatīs the problem of not having this quality as a zoom.
i just had to shot this expression in his face.
no time to step back.
but the quality of the CZ 135 is so amazing. I donīt , mind
getting no full frame.

Grandson at rest. Finally




A200, kit lens. Nearly dark room, bounced off ceiling plus a side flash.
I think I like the BW better

@ Wolfgerv & Pegelli: both very striking ports!
And Stimpy, I agree, the mono is a lovely shot!

I like the rhird one, where as the other poses seem a little to confrontational to me, it has a more vulnerable feel to it.
