    Do not crop the image; it works perfect just the way you did it. Lovely :agreed:
    If any, you could crop off a very small part of the top where it drifts into mostly light patterns to emphasize the main theme, but be careful not to overdo it.

    Here's what I was shooting in that shot, I scratched the paper a bit trying to print this one:

    Another shot from the day, I played with the contrast on my enlarger a bit for this one and lost some detail:

    What was it like trying to frame your shot with the camera at that angle? :lol:

    I know! What's the ....ing point then!?

    Here's one from the Thank You Scientist show from last week. Probably the only shot I'll ever do in 9x16!

    And one from the apartment complex.

    Man, I feel like swearing has been censored for at least a year. :lol: Liking posts went away more recently at least.

    I don't understand why they got rid of liking and repping though. This forum just keeps getting worse. This thread is literally the only reason I still come here.

    That first one is awesome man. :yesway:

    It wasn't too bad actually, but I wish I had taken the time to get the angles sorted correctly to have no divergence in the lines. :wallbash:

    Got this baby coming in tomorrow. Awwww YEAH! 70mm f/2.4. My first new lens in 4 years.

    That's a nice focal length for a crop body - about a 106mm FOV. I prefer 135mm over 105mm for portraits, though I wouldn't think twice about owning the Nikkor 105mm f/1.8.

    New lens day feelings are great - almost better than NGD. :lol:

    I'm sure it'll be used for portraits eventually but I really wanted something longer for the compression which is why f/2.4 really didn't bother me. I've never felt good either a 50mm on crop but this 70 feels just right. Can't wait to take it out Sunday.

    It's so damn light.

    Oh wait, I couldn't wait! Felt like B&W tonight..

    That's the same reason I like shooting with the 200mm and 300mm at 2.8, background compression is amazing (even at f/4 with the 300).

    That's awesome, Tang. That's a great focal length for APS-C, and I love how small that lenses is.

    I'm hoping to get something more tele before this coming summer, and this is what's got me waffling between the 90 2.0 and 50-140 2.8. It's not so much the shallow depth of field I'm after, but the options for compression. Plus, somewhat ironically, the longer lenses get you a more useable depth of field in addition to the crazy compression.

    I keep forgetting that I'm not shooting with a 35mm lens anymore. Gotta keep a better eye on my shutter speeds!

    I shot a friend and his bandmate tonight. I'm not completely thrilled with the photos, but the location was more difficult to work with than I was expecting (this was a small room that was used for storage) and it was a rushed job right before they played a show. It's a cool spot, though, and it would be fun to get the chance to empty it out and really shoot it for a day.

    These are all the 23mm around f/2.8-4, with umbrella'd speedlights on either side of them. Not ideal, but not too bad.

    And here's my clone job. :lol:

    And I did a headshot for the friend - a local venue wanted one because he plays a lot of solo gigs there. I really dig this one. This is the 56mm at 2.2, with an umbrella and bare flash. I was going for that Martin Schoeller look. I should have shot a wider aperture, and/or used the 35mm, but I didn't bring that lens and was in a rush.
