I have played a little today to show you two modification of following image. Idea was just to play a bit. I made this image in rather chaotic environment of railway station and surrounding buildings. I meant to combine a chaos of the place with symmetrical ground geometry and put in it strange element, the person in Yoga position.

Not sure what I wanted to create at the end, that is why I have created two version of it, I guess. I just felt that this image is strange and by editing it I wanted to emphasized it.

    Hi, Richard

    A very nice depth of field in the first image.
    A lame question: What lenses are you using?

      Iurie, I am not completely sure. I do not pay much attention to technical details. Mostly I use 35/2.8

    Is that a fixed zoom lense?

      Yes it is fixed lens. I use only those. I have one very cheap zoom lens, I use it only for extreme wide angle.

    I enjoyed the DoF effect because the image looks like a close-up shot of some toy scene :-)

    Of the two, I like the first image better… and also liked the illusional miniaturization look of it all, as if the the little tiny yoga figure is only inches/centimeters tall… like, if we were to take our time, get down on our knees and look close enough, we would discover that there is a whole race of teeny-tiny people who live amongst us… and heavy into the practice of yoga :-)

    I hate the “miniature effect”. Nothing left of the photograph, just gimmick. Might not have been what you were after, but close enough. Better stay away from it.

    Hehe, thanks. Don’t get me wrong, these are attractive photos no doubt. But form is overwhelming content, and that is making it out of balance. Good to try though.
