Strange Sign

ok ... I already mentioned other shots I made on Stuttgart's
look-out tower (see prev. post) - but you didn't expect something
like this, did you ?

The CP8800 is too big and too noticeable to easily create candid
photos with it the same way I could with the unique swivel lens of
the CP995. But there is the CP8800's 10x zoom and vibration
reduction lens which almost makes up for this drawback. This shot
was made from a distance of about 10 meters through the tower's
steel mesh. Hence the flare in the bottom left corner and the
diagonal bands. They increase the candid camera atmosphere, and I
don't consider them as flaws.

  • I like the relaxed look of the girl...If she saws the camera you couldnīt not capture this look....There is a little flare but a think it helps to gives a classic look to the image..

    Nice picutre
