    Setting 1/60 of a second on my old hands is tough. Just joking eh but agak agak 30 yrs old 1/60 40 yrs old 1/80 50 yrs old 1/100 60 yrs old 1/125?
    Seriously though my opinion is that apart from blur its a good portrait.

Maybe the expert here can input; is it camera shake? If aperture were set higher may be better result?
    Thank you dogcom for your kind words. If I can remember it was a grab shot. The old man was passing by where I was standing and I just put up my camera and pressed the shutter.
    It was in the evening and the light was fading which account for the low shutter speed.

    Hi Cecil. Nice to know you and thank you for your comment. Like you already pointed
    out....30 yrs old - 1/60sec.
    Me at 53 yrs old should dial in a shutter speed of 1/100.

    If you guys organise any outings.... do let me know.

    Thank you.

    Hi Bcool, welcome to CH. Nice picture you got. Would be better, like what others said, if it's sharper. Another thing is that it's too tightly cropped. Just my 0.02 cts only.

    Hello redstorm.....Thank you for your kind word. I wished it was sharp too.
    Here's another one taken at Juizhaigou, Sichuan. It's a bit further back and I think is slightly more sharper than the first image. What do you think?

    F6.3
    1/60sec
    ISO100


    Thank you and regards

    Nice shot though it lacks sharpness. Was it movement, shake or the lens issue? Anyway, the softness gives a pleasing photo.
    Cheers

    I'm 50+ and retired and should therefore put myself into the "count me in" list.

    ISO800, 20mm F2.8 1/8s KM7D hand held.


    Picture was shot in Datong, Shanxi inside the famous wooden pagoda. The camera's anti-shake feature is very useful for "older hands"

    Would love to join like minded photographers on leisurely trips to interesting places.

    Hi jay.....I like the softness too. This probably was caused by handshake. Old man got shaky hands lah.

    Hi fastshot....this is a lovely image and at ISO800, I can hardly see any grains . Looking at it, I would guess that this Buddha is rather old. Any history on this?

    It is the Sakyamuni statue, just inside the main entrance of the wooden pagoda (about 900 years old). See this link for more info: http://www.travelchinaguide.com/attr...den_pagoda.htm

    The picture was originally in RAW format. Then applied a little magic with Silkypix Pro raw processor. PS used only to reduce picture size for the web posting.

    Welcome to the club fastshot. Maybe should call it CSSC .. ClubSnap Senior Citizens

    Nice shot and do agree that the antishake helps tremendously and a boon to ambient low-light shots, not just for our hands. Was using a FZ20 for my China trips then and could take shots in a bouncing tour bus! Just replaced it with a FZ50 as I need to shoot 16:9 with higher pixels as I archived the shots a slide shows on DVD.

    Cheers

    Imposing to say the least. Imagine a pagoda made of wood that withstood the ravages of time for 900 yrs. It certainly speak volumes of the ingenuity of the ancient Chinese. I'm more surprised that it escaped the purges of Mao's cultural revolution.
    Anymore pics of your travels thru China......I'm a sucker when it comes to looking at images of China.

    Well, one reason is that maybe he was moving too fast, and 1/60 is still slow to freeze motion ... although still good for handheld use, unless you were really in a hurry to hold it relatively steady.

    Looking beyond the sharpness, however, it's not too bad. A less tighter crop would probably show him in movement, then it would be probably be better.

    Hi Clubgrit....No, the old man was not moving fast. It was me with my wobbly hands that contributed to the blurness. and thanks for your suggestion....will keep that in mind if I decide to try portrait shooting in the streets again.
    PS.....I was going thru some of your works in the forum and gotta to say that you are rather nifty and talented with that 'ancient camera' of yours
    and I kinda like these two

    Wow, thanks Bcool for highlighting the works of Clubgrit. I am astounded by the pictures. Hope we can organise an outing soon and hope to pick up some tips from the experienced photographers. There are so many thing that I wish to learn. Let's start maybe at a old coffee shop in an old district. Can have coffee, talk photography and perhaps take some pictures while there

    Hi dogcom.....I'm ok with the outing. May I suggest meeting up in Chinatown. Lots of coffeeshops and photo taking opportunities there. And to keep the thread going, here is one taken at the West Street in Yangshuo, China.
