Strollin' on the dock of the Bay

Well, ok, Woody Point Jetty.

Shot with the 85/1.2 wide open using an ND400 to keep the shutter speed down to a reasonable level.

Just mucking about while waiting for our students to arrive.

    Love the shallow dof here Dave, the tones from the processing are great also.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/fattybigboy] I have to agree. The pair in the foreground almost seem surreal.

    Very cool shot. The DOF really makes you look straight at the couple

    Clever use of the ND400 - must try that. Bit how did you focus??

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/fattybigboy] Very close to straight out of camera on this one. Just a wee fiddle in LR (but really not much at all).
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/unrelatedpatterns] Gotta love a really wide aperture :)
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/tristenmurray] Sure does.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/ross_m] In bright sunlight, on a fast lens, it's pretty easy to see and focus through the viewfinder Ross.

    Lovely - I like the way you shot it - original and it works to great effect :D

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/42495072@N00] Well I can't claim originality for the idea, seen something like it before, but it works well :)
