The only way for your pic to become rated is for another member to give it a rating. Which I just did. Nice portrait, by the way. Smile

I really like the bokeh on this shot. Great DOF.

@Hari
Woow, very nice potraits! I love them!
You have both great lenses and talent Smile
I don't have both Wink
The second would be really great if the sharpness would sit correctly on both eyes.

I shot the pic at f1.1 - the dof is razor thin which is why only one eye is in focus and everything else is thrown into the bokeh side of reality

the lady with the Summilux is just too amazing! I love her expression and the bokeh simply is from another world: the lines of the gutters and house fronts leading to the.. cathedral? The colors..phuuuu..even the plants on the front corners are just perfect, as if they were set up.
the B&W of the guy with the Canon, a real classic, love it!
The lady in B&W, a great photo too. Even though the one eye in focus is really hypnotizing I tend to agree with ForenSeil or would be curious how it was with the other eye in focus.
The one on the beach looks a bit dark. Could be my monitor, however I took the freedom, Hari I hope you don't mind, downloaded it to check it out and prefer a +20 to +25 of shadows in PS, the dramatic darkness of the clouds not yet lost.

we small guys have something to look up to.. Wink

I just started reading this thread, so far I only looked at the last page. Smile

Hari, the shot of the girl with the Summilux 35 1.4 ASPH is beautiful, looks like a painting. Kuuan, I really like your last shot: great expression, nice colors.

This is a snapshot with the nx10+nikkor 24/2.8, a bit strange but I like the haunting look in my daughter's eyes.

Thanks Andreas! Very Happy

Unfortunately im not too well versed with advanced photo editing tools and i once did try my luck with Photoshop but i felt like a village idiot inside a UFO Laughing Im far from being very good at photography and im happy to listen to criticism/suggestions. Now that you mention it, yes, the picture does look dark and could use some brightness ... i'll see if i can manage this with LR

I have some nice gear now but till recently I was shooting with a Canon IXUS 5 which I bought almost 7 years ago - nice point and shoot and it still serves me well!

Here are some images taken with this little gem ->








I'm not claiming that the images above are works of art or even qualify as good shots ... just that with my little camera and Picasa i did manage to produce some images that made me happy enough to explore the world of photography

And im glad i took the red pill Very Happy

Andreas - your portrait shot of the boy is awesome! To me, portrait photography is capturing the essence of that person at that moment. And your picture totally nails it!

Thanks Ludoo!

Your picture is surreal to my eyes! the toy (?) in motion and the child standing still with a haunting look as you right said!
