    Hi Everyone,

    One of my first posts in this forum. Went walking around Chinatown today after lunch and grabbed some various shots with my 85/1.4, 105/2.8, and 12-24. Any comments or especially critique would be really helpful. I've been working on control over DOF lately, but I'm not sure I have it down yet. The light was changing a lot from overcast to rainy to the sun peeking out, so I found that very challenging. Hope you enjoy!

    Empty street with trash in Chinatown (good thing pictures don't transmit smells :p )

    I'm in San Francisco myself. Haven't spent much time in the east bay, though I'm sure there're nice places to shoot out there.
