D for David

Posted on Wed 12th Apr, 2006, 4:37pm

ISO: 100, Shutter speed: 1/500, Aperture: f/5.6,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: 2:1,
Lens: Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L, Focal length: 35mm,
Captured: 30th March 4:32pm,

This is David, who we chatted to briefly. I think this will be the last shot I post from Coney Island.

What would make this into a perfect portrait would be if he was a school bus driver on his lunch break. I have no idea if he was or not but he did tell us we made a nice couple, which was nice.

The title comes from the fact that I asked him what train we needed to take to get back to where we were going as quickly as possible and he told us. But then I forgot and asked him again just as we were leaving and he said we needed "a D train... D for David."

Very fine portrait Jamey. He looks so happy.

He does look happy :) I was thinking "Its a shame that 'school bus' was cut off by the railing, but then I changed my mind, I like the arch shape it creates and it doesnt draw the attention away from a brilliant expression. Your best life shot in my opinion.

Great expression on the old chap and nice picture quality.

Great portrait Jamey and as said above one of you're best! I also like the blurring you have applied to the background in just the right amount.

This has got to be one of my faves - a real sunny disposition about it from his smile, the sunshine and the yellow of t'bus. Great exposure too!

wonderful shot, appologies for not popping by recently (really busy with work :S)... Is this DOF fake?

Jamey, Fri 14th Apr, 2006, 12:20pm
The DOF's natural. Cheers all.

Jeannie, Fri 14th Apr, 2006, 12:50pm
This is truly a brilliant capture!

Really cool portrait, nicely done!

excellent portrait, his smile and all these school buses give me the impression that this man didn't loose his children soul

The portrait is okay, and the school bus also. What bothers me is the buildings and lamposts that sourrounds his head.
