Effective and off the "beaten track" More often we see silhouettes used for intimacy, this has activity with their ghosts dancing in the background! However, mentioning that the photo has purple haze, a violet hue, would have been nice. My pupils are ultra-sensitive to purple, for which I must take medication...I would have skipped it. :) Montie http://gallery.leica-users.org/v/lugalrabs/100704_225458.jpg.html I don't know how I got such tack sharp results shooting at 100th of a second with a 200mm focal length with a 1.5 crop circle factor camera at night. But its the ultra compact 55-200 again. And so an effective at full frame format 300mm @ 100th of a second! To me the dioramas presented by people in this At Josie Robertson Plaza Fountain; called The Revson Fountain every night are amazing. But I usually have a wide on my camera. And luckily this night a week or two ago I had a long lens on. The people in the shot when they see me taking pictures of them off off to the side assume I'm getting their faces. They don't know I'm just getting their outlines. So its an unusual deal. I feel real brave because I don't feel like I'm invading anyone's privacy. But THEY don't know that. Much of what goes on at the fountain is people taking pictures of each other. But with flash usually. Not at this moment though. And here I am standing off with a long zoom speaking with a student with a camera bag who had the same exact lens on her camera. Both the non VR version...who needs virtual reality when we have the real thing?
