Works from these two weeks!

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
Been away for a few days.. I know you guys missed me... right? :lol:

Just want to share my recent works.

As always.. critiques are extremely welcomed, don't worry about hurting my feeling with it being harsh wink.gif


First off, some shots i took while in NYC

1. The 85L is just... magical. This lens and the 135L Sooc shots are just so damn nice.

2. 135L Sooc

5.My cousin.. first time i've seen her since she was born 4 years ago.. LOL. Bokeh from the sigma 50 is so creamy drool.gif

Now, back home and i can't believe i'm snowed in.. IN GEORGIA!! Most are taken with the 14L, it's so freaking wide redface.gif

6. Taken in the middle of the night.

9. Shot at ISO 25600... surprisingly decent with minor touch up :O

10. Random shot i took this morning.. This is the main road here lol.. completely covered in ice. Believe it or not.. that was one of the non-icy parts of the road.

Course I missed you! Without you here the Asian population fell by 33%!

Love those shots too. Favorite ones are #2 for nostalgia (more on that later), 4, and 8 (one day...).

#2 makes me laugh a bit though. Without your preface saying that was NYC, I would have guessed you traveled to Vietnam, Korea, or China because that looks just like the street side markets they have there.

The only problem I have really is #6, where the sky seems a bit harsh and you could probably mask + underexpose the sky a tad bit. I think a darker sky would especially bring out the snow very well smile.gif

If #6 was taken at night, how is it so bright? Very high ISO?

Long exposure. The EXIF reads ISO 400 @ 5". Given his very flexible yet sturdy tripod, I definitely think his camera was mounted smile.gif

It's not 50%? Whos the other asian? tongue.gif

#2 is one of my favorite shots, the streetside markets are truly unique. It's a mini china/ korea there anyway biggrin.gif

I actually overexposed #6 on purpose, it was snowing yet somewhat misty/ foggy.. i wanted to keep that feel to it.. but that made the street lamp overexposed lol redface.gif

dudemanppl is the other Asian in the photo forum tongue.gif

Yep, I definitely love #2 for that reason too. I'm not sure exactly what it is about them, but streetside markets were something I always felt were unique and a bit lacking in normal American society.

But yea, overall very nice shots. I'm extremely surprised at how sharp your images are at wide apertures. Gah, one year more undergrad + ??? years more grad school and those L-lenses will be mine as well!

Hehe, one reason why the 135L is my favorite lens.. it's so sharp wide open. Screw the 70-200/2.8 mkII, f/2.0 ftw!

Have you never been to a farmer's market? If you want to see an awesome American market, you should go to Haymarket in Boston sometime. Very cool! Not the same quality/caliber as an Asian or European street market, but still a lot of fun.

And Eek, nice shots! Every time I see the shots that come out of the L-series primes I go drool.gif

And I remember what it was like getting snow down south! I lived in North Carolina from 1991-1992 when I was born and again from 1994-1996 after living in the south of France, and I remember we got a storm that only dropped about two or three inches of snow, but it froze solid and shut down Chapel Hill for like two weeks... This was probably 1995 I think.

Other Asian reporting (also the youngest I think)! Ugh I need a 135L soon to shoot some more crappy pictures of basketball, but this 400 2.8 is so fun I don't want to sell it.
LOL, I was wondering when you got an 85L, and then I realized the first picture wasn't as a sushi bar...
