"overriding auto focus... "

I've been trying to get as sharp as possible images of the subjects for too long; it's time to relax a little. Interestingly, it is equally enjoyable... not to focus, at least occasionally.:-)

can't forget yesterdays...

were my memories inspiring me to capture these images, or were these images bringing back the memories? I really don't know... But for sure, there are some yesterdays that I'd never forget...

my answer to ian bramham's

Just as I thought that I wouldn't post anymore on the FTF (which had got "polluted" and stuffed with empty talks and biased disputes on equipments), Ian Bramham, one of the best photographers I've known on the Forum, posted some wonderful night shots of Paris:
He has brought life and hope to the Forum and... made me want to post again.:-)

"sheung wan by night"

"capturing a capture"

"merry x'mas & happy new year - central by night"

"rushing home"

"walker evans... "

"an old pipe & a cat... "

"Cameras and lenses are simply tools to place our unique vision on film. Concentrate on equipment and you'll take technically good photographs. Concentrate on seeing the light's magic colors and your images will stir the soul." Jack Dykinga

Image quality factors, IMO, are far less important than the core photographical elements in conveying an atmosphere or giving distinction to the subject... When would people stop being caught up in the equipment and focus again on getting a well composed photograph? I myself love the F30 pics as much as the s5 pics...
