Taking a short cut

Sorry guys, another day that I've had to resort to the archive. I'm pressed with deadlines and stuff to deliver to my clients before my next wave of work comes in. I'm afraid you're gonna have to settle with these for now till I make some time to do some work on my blog photos.

In the meantime, today I actually took sometime off to do some shooting, this time with Skee and Deji. We went back to Portobello Market. I took the portrait slant on my work today. Hopefully I'll post some shots from that outing. Goodness I've not even posted most of the shots from my previous outing. Please please forgive me.

As per Suby - a splendid all round shot. But you just know I'm trained to be picky, don't you, so I'll point out that there appear to be several dust spots on the sensor, most notably (but not exclusively) in the cloudy sky area.

brilliant slice of life and very well finished
Quite a bit going on in this picture...it seems as if you are trying out different same of pictures or using that style where someone is the focal point of a busy shot. I was not a real fan on that but I do like this one.
