That is a great street shot
Stolen moment
Thanks Gale!
They we're kissing for some time already... and since I only had a 21mm lens (14mm on a DSLR), I walked by very closely. I had to be quick and ask for luck to join in.

Great shot Ned. The background looks motion blurred yet the couple are sharp. Either that or the lens has a bokeh that looks a lot like motion blur.

Which is it?

Chris, good observation! Chris101 also asked me about this "effect" I get in my pictures but I lost the post and often remembered to dig it out and answer the question. The effect is simple: it is reverse panning (please don't mind me creating new technical terms :tongue:). I often shoot while walking and so I pan. This will make the subject still but the background move.

This is the best example I have, shot from my car while driving:

wonderful capture Ned, i love it
Thanks! It's a sight we all witness every day. It's only a matter of balls or will :smile: No real technique nor vision involved...

:biggrin::biggrin::biggrin: You crack me up!

I love the 90° angle lenses. My 21mm f/2 Zuiko is one of my favorites. Can Zuikos be fitted to a Leica mount? It seems like the Olympus lens mount is way out there (that is, distant from the film plane), especially compared to the Leica's. Perhaps a Zuiko could be fitted with an adapter?

Chris, check out www.cameraquest.com.

Ned, nice one. I wish you had the cojones to stop and compose a bit more carefully*. It has elements that'd make it a winner.

*easy for me to say.. :)
Stephen,
Believe me or not, I composed it this way on purpose. I try to apply new styles/compositions as often as I can or otherwise all my pics would look the same. I tilt tilt my compositions when I can or feel like it. I liked the idea of leaving a big space on top to convey a different feeling. The lucky part was that I was unnoticed and I clicked at the right moment where we see the girl's face. This was the gamble.
Still, I'm not sure if the composition is right (you seem to think otherwise and that's just fuine!) but the "stealthy" feeling is there.

Very interesting Ray! (as is the Camera Quest website - thanks Stephen.) I don't particularly like the double focussing ring set up though. For the 21/2 though, I could use 'guess' focusing to match my 'guess' metering... And save some bucks on the RF coupled adapter.
