Oktoberfest 2008- djh63- Nikkor 85/1.8

Discussion in 'Photo Meme' started by djh63, Sep 27, 2008.

  1. Looking forward to the month of shooting with you all and I hope to be able to contribute some worthwhile photos. I plan on shooting every day but I realise already that I will not be able to post every day- I also plan to post only in b+w (just for Gary :wink:)  and in square format. Have fun and good luck!!
  2. I'm sure you'll post plenty of worthwhile photos as usual David! Great to be playing together again.
  3. Thanks Jani- good to see you and some of the other regulars here too. I'm looking forward to the month, but as I work in the financial markets I could do with a little less action in the office......... that might allow me to concentrate more on taking a photo or two!!
    Good luck to all of our players- have a great Oktoberfest :smile:

    Here is my first...

  4. i really like this, i might crop some of the dead space at the bottom but a good start
  5. To be honest, I don't get it. If I would know where it was shot and who the people are/what they are doing/etc. things might be different. Now all I see is two pairs of legs hanging from nowhere on top of nothing.

    Do you have a title for the shot? It might help.
  6. This works nicely in B&W.
  7. I don't know how the markets have been behaving on your side of the pond but I find you picture very powerful. Less is more they say !

    Well done.
  8. I'm not sure. I'm drawn to look at it, but I can't say what it is.

    (There are butts in it though :wink:)

  10. I did manage to shoot a few frames yesterday, but I was quite late home and am now up early to sort a few things out.......

  11. David,

    That's pretty cool. Nice perspective.

  12. Seems to be in some kind of vehicle going downhill?

    first shot screams dispair. 2 lone souls hang around after the melee...
    the anonymity of them by shooting only the feet adds to it I think, but then again Im told I look to deep into things.....Call me a dime store philosopher

    The second is one of those moments that might not be interesting in the moment but manuplated by the camera and frozen it time it becomes a shot that makes others go "hmmm....."

    Well done, nice start to the month.

    I like the journalistic feel to it - makes you think.
  15. This awakens in me a fear of flying. I try to keep in check, however, because I love traveling.
  16. Nice fragment of the daily routine on the commuter train, I suppose.
  17. Thanks Gary- I agree apart from the fact that I want to post square images only this month....... by cropping too much more I feel that I would lose something worthwhile

    No title Jani- it is just about what is left behind after the party is over

    Thanks Craig

    Many thanks J-P

    Thanks Birgit


    Thanks Fredrik

    Thank you Craig- I was leaning out into the aisle of the train last night on the way home and shot this one

    Just in the train Birgit- but I was not very level :wink:

    Thanks Tim- and thanks again for hosting this month.

    Thanks Leslie- that was the idea

    Uh-oh!! It is only a train!! :redface:

  18. We have a very enthusiastic group- thanks for visiting and leaving your comments. I do really want to hear what you think! Apologies that I haven't done a tour of all of the other threads yet, but I will endeavour to put that right over the weekend......... now I am just craving sleep.

    The next

  19. Is the driver asleep or is he just thinking: "Look, mom, no hands!"

    Oh, and I want one of those tickets for everything.

    Nice shot.
