    Nice stuff Francis, looks like you and your D700 had a good night out!

    I particually like the third shot, surely with a lens that wide on FX you must have been mere inches from her face?!
  4. They have a great feel to them- thanks for sharing.

    those are really cool..I envy your ability to take regular people shots and make them look interesting...mine still look regular LOL
  9. francis,
    these are awesome shots
    1. you shot with a 20mm lens.... IN YOUR FACE STYLE... very daring and impressive
    2. you are in AUSTIN.... the live music capital of the world... and area that has the liveliest streets with young people in north america (for a city its size)
    3. f/1.8... it doesn't get any cooler than that (ok.... f/1.2.... the nocturne... i know)
  10. oh,
    and i LOVE the PEACE SIGN offered by the gentleman in #1

    Hi, really great shots and makeme want to have the 20 1.8 as well. Which Aperture did you use for the shots? They look real crisp. Could you upload them again with EXIF Data. That would be really great.

    I love my 20mm 1.8 siggy and see you are using yours well. Thanks for sharing.
  13. Austin looks pretty active for the youngsters at night. I really really like #1 and #4! nice shooting.
  14. I love these! I'm not brave enough yet for street portraits unless I'm in a HUGE group to protect me, LOL!

    Thanks, Lisa:biggrin:. You just gotta get out there and do it....you can't be timid. People will sense that and they'll react to it.

    Thanks, Timur. How do I load the images with the EXIF? I thought it automatically did that...
