Good pictures Larry. India provides great opportunities to a street photographer. I like the #2. I am sure that you would have captured many more during your visit

Thanks for sharing these Larry. I like # 2 and # 3. Although, I might try a tighter crop for number 3.

I've looked at the series a couple of times and I keep thinking that something is missing. As an observer, I'm wondering how they'd look with a shallower DOF. They might have awesome impact. I looked at the exif and it seems you used a slower zoom. So that couldn't have been accomplished with what you used.

Tanks, CCROY and Samer for the comments.

The D200 is my first digital camera. I purchased an 18-200 with it and I had only a couple of weeks with them before I went to India on what was primarily a birding trip. I had no other lens with me because I wanted to travel as light as possible. I tended to stop down a bit when I could due to the softness of this lens wide open.

I had not taken many people pictures before, so this aspect of photography was new to me.

I'm also new to Photoshop, but perhaps I can learn to do some subject isolation in post.

Cheers,

Larry

p.s. More photos tomorrow
