#1 - great shot!

I'm not really digging that focal length for the Morgan Freeman shot.

Thanks, jaharris1001, Brad.

jaharris, he's suitably dressed, too, in black like a true polished musician unlike others in t-shirt and jeans that I see on other street corners. I'm wondering though why he chose to set up in Times Square, a place crawling with cops -- really crawling with cops -- when there are many other places where he can perform and panhandle for a few minutes before the cops arrive.

Brad, I've been wanting to take this kind of shot since I first noticed the technique used in print ads about 14 years ago -- big head, small feet, happy face. I thought with my new ultra-wide I finally got it. I guess not.

It's just one man's opinion. Take it with a grain of salt.

OK, Brad. If I can make Morgan Freeman smile, would that be better just kidding...

Making him smile is simple - just take a lighter and a putty knife.
