E-P2 with Panny 25mm F1.4; Berlin, Germany and New Hope,PA
I really like your first one, it's a great example of how careful composition can produce the goods with this focal length.
I never understood why some people think wide is how one *should* shoot street scenes.
I love your unabashed cropping on #2.
Very nice shots,I find the bike one of particular attraction.
You can take the shot and worry about composition in processing.
Thanks a lot. I took this on a recent trip to Germany where I had three lenses, but forced myself to shoot with the 50 on our last day. It was a great exercise (and a good reminder, from my early film days ,when all I had was the 50 on my camera) that the 50mm FOV is very versatile and it can look wide or tele depending on composition, framing and informed use of depth-of-field.
That's the perfect word for it! Just felt and looked right.....magazine editors do it all the time.:smile:
Thanks a bunch, RT. Oddly enough, I generally favor a 35mm lens FOV for street shooting, and even went ahead and got an X100 to have a more "specialized" street camera. But shooting with a 50 FOV really brings back a lot of discipline.
Too many fine lenses, too little money! Nice shots.
I understand you 100% here!
