Stronger Focus

I have been doing a lot of thinking recently about the direction I want to take this photoblog. I find that it really can be very distracting to my normal work which is about photography. I've decided I'd focus on seperating the two.

On the photoblog for now, I am going to concentrate on purely social and documentary photos. These will include photos of the various moments I find about theplace. The image above is the kind of thing that I am talking about. Nothing special but hey it's my photoblog.

great dof and processing.

her face and little finger look like they got a little 'dirtied' during post
Jide Alakija: Thanks. The pp reveals a lot of detail. It's the same thing you get when you use very high dynamic range bw film.
well seen--great catch! and great B&W conversion

Muy buena. Como ha cambiado esto , ya nadie sale sin su camara.
Fantastic image!

I love the detail too. It could have been a tone mapped HDR image.
