    1, 2, 4, 5, and 6 are with my new to me 50mm 1.4 Summilux ASPH. The rest are with the 35mm 1.4 Summilux ASPH (non-FLE) and the 50mm 1.5 ZM C-Sonnar. All on the M9P.

    Cheers,

    Wonderful Antonio, all really good. I especially like the first one, the reflections you caught in his eyes really brings life to the photograph. How are you finding your project?

    Thanks! I asked if I could take his photo and he raised his arms like that. I think it may have been a reaction to the 7D and 17-40 pointing at him. Quite uncompact, to say the least...

    Cheers,

    Antonio

    All are excellent shots. I think also closer shots with eyes and character showing are stronger images then the rest. You should try to do an exhibition...

    One of the best documentary projects I have seen in a long time. In a lot of the images, there is a quiet dignity, almost a type of street nobility and wisdom that comes with age and with with living. You captured this certain spirit very well. It makes the viewer want know more about these people. Outstanding work.

    Antonio those are incredible. You've got to make some LARGE prints and get them shown.

    Well, it's been a while since I added anything to this thread. As some of you may recall, this started as a mentorship/critique exercise (see https://www.photographerslounge.org/threads/28220/). As I explained before, the Farmers Market changes depending on the time of the day. All of the pictures I had shown, up to now, had been taken during the day. Yesterday, I visited the market during the late afternoon and evening, when it turns from a traditional market into a hopping meeting place for young and old alike. A Puerto Rican Bomba group was playing, which made for an exciting atmosphere. These are the best of the bunch.

    in this latest set, I'm really struck be the different feeling I get while viewing the last four. I almost never shoot in this style, but I once got a shot that had this quality and I loved it. Capturing that moment when the subject interacts with either the shooter (or just the camera) is thrilling. But even just viewing them gives a small amount of that same feeling. The others are great, too. But the ones with that connection REALLY do it for me.
