    the buddha shot captivates.... print big and hang it up... it's a classic. the little vignetting's makes the shot looks so classy

    I like the first and second photos best...

    The first one gave me chills, to be honest... the desaturated fingers look pale in contrast to the fence (is that a fence?) and reminds me of Asian horror movies 0_o;; A strong photo, well done.

    And the second one has a peaceful colour tone...

    the buddha shot and the one with the "hanger" are the best. the rest are pretty.. ordinary.

    the buddha one is just damn good.

    Just curious, how do you manage to sharpen the object (foreground) and blur the rest (background)?

    I've been trying this with aperture setting and manual focus on my A70 but to no avail. What do I need to make these shots that you took? Is it the lens?

    Hehe, I am very curious because I am quite new to photography. Just started a month and a half ago.

    Thanks guys!

    Since you guys like them so much, I have compiled the photos into the Flash animation for you. If you have a fast link to the net, click here to view.

    Use low F stops such as F1.4 to F2.8 and shoot at a close range with the focus on the eye nearest to your camera.

    Default Stunning images

    Did not get much of a chance to visit Clubsnap the last few months, but just saw this post of yours. Stunning images, they are what I call "story tellers". Once can images all kind of history and emotions in the images. Really nice.

    Well, I didn't notice it. What I did was just shoot it in a close distance with an aperture wide open (F1.4 to F2.8)

    It was a dry leaf found on the pavement on a cold early December street in Amsterdam last year but it wasn't frozen.

    Thanks.

    buddha shot rules....nice perspective.
    The door hook in light sepia will give it more of a retro feel
    nice shots!!
