Just came back from a trip and did a quick pp to put this one up for C&C.

Thanks

Wow, a very dramatic photo. Well done. I do not know what the original looks like, but on my monitor there are some large black areas (lower left hand corner and under the plate by his hands) with no detail. I always like to see a small amount of detail in the shadow areas...

Very nice. The face and food being lit set the mood very well. Really like all of the shadows

Very dramatic. The lighting is fantastic. I would crop out some of the dead space on the right and bottom though.

Really nice shot, the key to this is the use of the light, combine that with good framing and low camera position and you have a winner. I'm not too worried about the lack of detail in the shadow areas, these are not where my eyes are going, where my eyes do go the fine lovely textures.

Thanks for the kind comments.

My wife and I were parent chaperones for a group of 24 high school students on a Middle East trip. I was the tail end of the group as we were going to a chapel in Damascus (and I wasn't exactly sure where it was and was already almost out of contact with the group) and I happened to see him across the street. Only had the chance to take 2 shots before crowds closed in and he moved into different light so kept my fingers crossed.

The lens is the Canon 18-135 IS.

I've been impressed with the noise at 1600 when shooting sports. Hadn't really done much at 3200, but am happy with what I've seen so far. I did run this shot through Neat Image though, so it's not all the 7d.

Kevin

Almost like a painting by one of the Old Masters. Wonderful!
