Thank you all for the recent support :heart:
Since i get a lot of equipment questions:
I used Canon 350D, 50mm 1.4 set at 1.4.
Taken in natural light and i underexposed the shot 3 steps to get one strong highlight area and darker overall


Any fav and feedback is very appreciated

Critique by Random-Star Oct 31, 2009, 12:00:50 PM
First of all, I'd like to say that every photography I've been finding on the front page that catches my attention appears to belong to you. You really have a gorgeous gallery.

From a technical standpoint, the depth of field is perfect, focusing just on the very end of the book and letting the pages fade into a blur. The fact that it's not focused too sharply helps to show a warm, dreamy atmosphere that could have been ruined, had there been too much contrast between the edges of the pages and the rest of the piece.

The lighting and colours are also amazing, catching the eye with a subtle contrast and warm colours, without being an eyesore.

And, while this is purely personal preference, I adore the subject matter used. :D

Stunning photograph, the subtlety of the colors inspire an awed hush (so to speak) when looking at it. Well done!

This photo has got awesome nostalgic feeling. Very good use of small depth of field and warm colours. I'm really impressed by your works.

WOW..gorgeous! Love the kind of sepia tone to this, gives it a kind of dusty, 'forgotten' look, which makes for a very nice effect. :)
