Ok, so you can’t really tell we were by the river, but we were. Burnham on Crouch. At the pub. m Whilst I dislike the trends for certain looks or filters which generally end up overused, overdone and finally end up getting on your tits. I did actually quite like the Lomo look for this particular shot.
As portraits go it’s not going to win any awards – The close crop is maybe a bit too close, or not close enough It’s somewhere in between. The lighting, whilst natural could have been better (a reflector would have helped) but for what was essentially a ‘grab’ shot as I went to make myself a coffee was impressed with a) the speed of focus and b) the bokeh (what little there is) @ 70mm.
