Very attractive, nice shot Nick.*Always love candid photos. What's the WB setting? thanks!

My favourite shot !

Basac,
Basac! Great to hear from you, brother!

WB was manual. I used a velvia photoshop action. Though most like velvia for landscape, I like it with everything but portraits...

It's free! Here's a link:

In a setting like this, I pretend I'm fiddling with my camera settings, or looking at old pictures. I pretend I'm completely disinterested. (A lifetime of "admiring" ladies taught me how to look without looking. :G)

On this day some lady thought I was a "goverment agent..." I just told them I was looking a photos on the lcd, and teach a class in photography. Oddly, I didn't take her picture.

pggunn, and Mr. Flair, TS, Suze... thank a bunch! Wasn't sure how folks would respond, since it's nothing flashy. Just a candid of a woman drinking coffee. I'm glad you liked it.

I just love when people write free actions and plug-ins for PS. Some of them are as good as the $$$ stuff. The velvia action is a great example.

Long time, no post noons. Glad to see your back. Or do you have split personalities?

This is a good shot except for all the crap in the way. You gotta position yourself better. I'm assuming your a novice at this. That's the only reason I give advice. I dont give advice to experts (if I can help it).You probably don'thave your photo persona down right. The story line is good and indicates some degree of sophistication. You havethe lighting down. You need to step up to the plate. Maybe sneak a double in. Try not to faint. You'll be in that higher category of photographers before you know it.

I was a afraid to comment on my distraction. But intresting the way it does lead you to her, intentional? I've looked at this a couple of times today. It says a lot more than my first reaction.

Intentional, yes. Cinematography is more about composition. Leading the eye is easy on this kind of shot. Just rearrange a few items.
