    Thanks. Was a quick snapshot while waiting for Skypacker. Could have done longer exposure to illustrate the human traffic though.

    Shot this with a manual 50mm lens? Marvellous!!
    By shooting multiple times while slowly adjusting focus. Anyone wanna sponsor me a Katz-eye? (And the tripod to the hip works quite well, might I add)

    I didn't think the sphere was smooth enough to render a smooth reflection. Guess I was wrong. I no master, still learning lah.

    You guys could just be the cure to my LBA. Why get DA and FA Limiteds when an M lens could do the job just fine. But I still want a fisheye lens!
    Brand loyalty? Pffttt...| Got Flickr?
    I shoot JPEG (got a problem with that?)

    This is a GREAT tip for manual lenses! Thanks!

    And yes, I'll work on my belly muscles too

    Nice one Fengwei,
    The colours and the sharpness are great! And kudos to the brave "model" who dare to zoom in so close to capture his target chess pieces. I don't even dare take it from a distance...Maybe that is why so little street shots from me.

    I noticed that this man is wary and hide his face whenever i pointed the camera at the whole group. I decided not to shoot them.
    Haha, felt so too. But I managed to snap on him a couple of times anyway

    Thanks seefei. Glad you like them

    Yeah, our seefei is the man (FISHMAN) of the day! He's really brave I'd say, never saw any street photographer taking photos like he did there

    These three I gave them some sepia tone treatment:






    And I particularly like this one the best:

    Actually these are from the narrow end of the fisheye (17mm), hence not truely fisheye shots. I didnt post cos i felt the fisheye effect was too obvious. Will post some true 10mm fisheye photographs later after i pp them.

    Took a few of the chess players but never really like them, I meant the photo not the players. But since bravery count in photography, will post some later...

    Thanks

    It's an free action for CS/CS2 which I downloaded off the Internet. After the action, I added a bit noise so to give it some aging look. Works for my own taste, glad you like it too.

    Hi Seefei
    Eh? why my setup ? I only have a K200D compared with everyone here with K20D and no exotic lenses to my name, just a small few premium ones.
    BTW, your shots are great man! You even have a colour version of Feng Wei's BW man.
