ISO: 100, Shutter speed: 1/320, Aperture: f/5.6,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: Minor,
Lens: Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L, Focal length: 35mm,
Captured: 23rd March 2006, 5:37pm,

This was taken just as the ferry was about to land. I looked round from photographing seagulls, saw this guy looking out to sea and thought he looked deep in thought so I took a shot.

It's a shame that the guy in the brown jacket crowds the background a bit and the triangular shadow in the bottom right (which may well be my arm, actually) doesn't help either but overall I like this shot.
Not loads, but I do like it.

you seem to be getting better and better at catching people being 'natural' really like this one, he does seem deep in thought, im always afraid to take a pic of someone random incase they see me and don't like it !

Thank you. To be honest it was one of the less intimidating people shots I've done because the view meant there were a lot of people taking photos so I didn't really stand out too much.

NIce shot Jamey. The blues in they sky and the water are something else.

Love the colours in this shot, the blue of the sea and the crazy cool blue of the sky, even the whacky orange colour of the metal bits behind the two guys.

Nice capture.I think that it could have benefitted from a shallower DOF, or maybe a fake DOF to concentrate on the subject a little more. Or possibly a tighter crop!.Still a great shot tho ;)

I do like the complimentary colours - the blue & russet of the passenger as against the blue & orange of the background. I guess there might be some improvement if the guy in the background wasn't there but...

milou, Sun 2nd Apr, 2006, 6:37pm
...there is contrast in his posture of looking downcast and the main subject's uplifting viewpoint.

Jamey, Sun 2nd Apr, 2006, 6:49pm
True. Maybe I should've called it Mr Happy and Mr Sad or something.

Just found your site as a link from Milouvision. This shot is FAB! Great use of complementary colours (me fave two, blue and orange) and a superb wistful expression on that man's face.

The cheque's in the post, milou ;)

I like the deep colors... in all of your stuff. Brilliant archive of work! Regards, Jason

Jamey, you said >> This guy, he looked deep in thought

There is something about that guy... can't quite put my finger on it, but if it was a slighty darker image, I think I'd be worried if I met him.

the two different expressons are cool.

The guy in the foreground oozes character but the other bloke is just "some bloke". The contrast between the two is interesting not sure if it works for me or not. Lovely composition though.
