A little wider

Got to playing around a little more with the WCL lens on my X100S which gives me a 28mm field of view. Part of the reason for the WCL was to get me closer to subject in order to "fill the frame" while still providing some context to the composition.
This one works for me. The woman on the right was just returning to her table and is really the only in-focus point in the image as I was shooting at f2. But the diagonal lines created by the perspective (the table, chair armrest, lights, ceiling edges & other lines) help draw the eye into the depths of the image (again, for me) and highlight the other three people.


I also like the fact that the woman is cropped slightly both top and bottom. Not sure why I like it this way but I do have another image where she is not cropped and it does not seem as appealing. It might be because the second image has her a little further away and her posture is not as appealing as it is here.

Hats!

Just a image I saw happening. Thought it might be a good one for the "PAIRS" series.

I see you!

The Visual Arts Coordinator, Marcella Kuykendall, at the local Center for the Arts had these two eyeballs sitting in her office door window and I thought they would make an interesting composition. I decided to shoot wide open (f2.0) but, how further edit, I think a little more depth of field might be in order. Next time I am at the Center (and assuming the "eyes" are still there) I will try something on the order of f5.6 or f8.

Tilted

While in my usual coffeeshop during my wife's writing group meeting, I spotted a lamp shade that was tilted slightly. I took a couple of shots of the table when it was empty but was able to capture this one with the table filled.
