After the cross country race

  1. I keep staring at the boy in blue trying to make my mind up as to whether he’s looking at “me”, as it were, or past “me”. The lower boy feels a lot more obvious. Whatever, they both have a healthy glow about them, particularly the upper one, which is refreshing to see.

  2. In the lower shot he looks disgustingly unpuffed! Shouldn’t he be sweating and his hair all over the place? Or is that just how I might have looked?! The shot is good with its orange/green strong contrast.

    In the top one I find the dof differentiation slightly unsettling – the boy looks a bit as though he is pasted on to the background and the angle makes the large boy in the background defy perspective. Our hero’s expression is great though.

  3. Ahh not enough mud! Good portraits with a perfect DoF.

  4. Ah. Jimmy, in orange, is a very good athlete and quickly recovers after his race. Luke, is a footballer and cross country running requires some ‘effort’. It’s funny how the depth of field in the first is discomforting, John. Since moving the LR5 from 3 I’ve noticed the Zeiss C-Sonnar seems to create much more 3D effect and micro-contrast. The 35 Biogon has always been slightly disturbing in its ability to make subjects leap out of the background, but I presume there is something in the processing engine that has allowed the 50 to shine as well.I’ll try to remember to stop down to f4 next time.
