Another from India. Bling camera, 50mm Zeiss C Sonnar ZM, @ f/2.

I am very much enjoying your images from India, especially the people images. I really like how you use shallow depth of field in some of your images. This one is very interesting, the nice balance of shadows, shapes and people. Makes the image dynamic. Also, you have stasis and motion in the people. Excellent work!

Keith, lucky for the Bling to have landed an artist!

As ever, beautiful colours you create/capture/produce and the content would be very hard to beat, too.

Makes much of Europe look flat.

As chance would have it, I was looking at a Jeanloup Sieff set of pix in Pinterest over lunch, and where I think he used his M4 or whatever, the dynamics are just, well, different. I know he used several other types of camera too, Rollei TLR, Hassy 500, Pentax, Nikon, but the Bling with 21mm stands out. How wide does your kit go at the moment?

I don't think I posted this one before, last in a quartet or so of a particular window in the Port.

Helmut Newton also played around with mannequins in some of his fashion shots; in a few, it's hard to spot this unless you start to question the scary situations in which they do their thing. And all that before Photoshop. With PS he could probably have fooled everybody, but then, isn't it also possible that the little deception, when seen for what it is, is also part of the deal, the interest?

Rob, I wish I could take credit for both the colour and content but if Rajasthan excels at anything it would be the combination.

That said, I do find I prefer the Adobe colour profiles in Adobe Camera Raw to the Leica Embedded versions. The reds in particular tend towards overkill in the latter. But as with any post work it's about trying to get the best out of the files and matching one's vision. Perhaps the embedded profiles could give a much need boost to flat old Europe ;-)

The widest lens I have is 21mm and it's a real cracker, but if that's not wide enough there's quite a choice including M fit Voigtlander lenses as wide as 10mm!

Pieter,

It looks to me as if you favor leaning left.   :D

That's only from the viewer's perspective, no?

It's the other thing that keeps me awake at night: so what if we finally manage to contact the aliens, and after a large UN convention weighting the options of hostile or friendly beings, we decide to invite them over. How are you going to give directions?

For myself I don't know, it's actually the tree in front that favoured leaning left, but it seems outnumbered by some others in the background   :-\  ;)

It seems that the further north, the more of them are leaning left.
All the way to Alaska. There the situation reverses.

I guess it depends if you're coming or going.

The main thing I like about trees is that unless impeded they all aim upward.
