The Guilty Secret

Nikon D70 @ 20mm, 1/80 sec, f/5.6, ISO 200

I have to be honest, I do like this one. I think the positive response to my "Urban Deriliction" thread on dpreview.com put me in the mood to take some more of these kind of shots. And having finally bought myself a proper camera bag, the Lowepro Mini Trekker AW, I knew I could outrun any dodgy characters found down these slightly shady alleys in Glasgae. But I welcomed this fellow who provided a much needed human element to the shot.

This is another example of a shot that looks cr@p when resized for the web so here's a link to a larger version.

Would welcome your thoughts on this one - does it work for you?

i like it alot alot. Love the alley love the grafittis and the tonation which you've added. The guy is really really nececssary for this shot, especially with his head turned. It would have been perfect if he had been nearer the lens but what a shot it already is!

Yes this really works for me too! Especially the weird graphiti with Chinese characters.
Saw your pics of Edinburgh castle on dpreview...

hehe - I have that bag - its very useful :)

The only annoying thing is, when you attach a tripod you can't actually get into the bag to get anything out without releasing the catch at the top of it, thats holding the tripod. I find that highly irritating.

Oh and... GREAT shot ;)

This almost trumps the no parking one, great great tones and composition. I'd say second best of the series.
