Title • sitting in the middle

I was going to put up the companion shot to yesterday's entry today, but it's rather similar so thought I'd go for this one instead and post the other shot tomorrow.

As for this one: I mentioned that I had between five and fifteen shots to put up from my trip. I went through them all today, and while I could probably manage to put up about twelve of them, there are only nine that I think are any good, and this one is by far and away my favourite. It's another candid shot-from-the-knee attempt, this time on the tube, and I'm really pleased with the way it turned out, not least because it was a 1/10th second shutter speed. You may have noticed that I always shoot at ISO 50, despite the fact that the G5 will (supposedly) go up to ISO 400. In my experience anything above ISO 50 is so noisy that it's really not worth bothering with so I often end up with quite slow shutter speeds.

Anyway, I've put this in my portfolio category as I think it's definitely one of the best shots I've produced recently, so I'd be interested to hear what you think.

And finally, I was really pleased yesterday to see that Jon (Ground Glass) is back after a couple of unavoidable weeks away. Welcome back :-)
