I'm thinking

This is another candid shot from my school's orientation program four days ago. Taken on the same day as I'm telling you my dream.

Did some advance editing on the eyes to sharpen it. I'm quite bad at controlling the focus you see. Auto level and auto contrast was used as well. Some additional curves, satuaration, and selective colour adjustment were involved. Colour adjustment was use to up the gradient on the face after desaturation on the overall.

So here's the original picture.

taken: 4/10/2006 1.42PM
camera: Canon PowerShot S2 IS (Prosumer camera)
focal length: 59.7mm
aperture: f/3.5
shutter speed: 1/6s
exposure compensation: 0 step
metering: pattern
flash: not fired
image quality: JPEG
cropping: no

Good shot & work. Isn't contrast a bit much on the face? I think focus is ok, unless you wanted to get the lcd displays sharp.

Thanks Emré and Ash!

Emré, I felt that the contrast was ok though. The focus had been processed with gaussian blur on the laptops in photoshop. Oh, and I created a softness effect too. :)

Sorry Emré. Yeah, I noticed what you ment by "contrast a bit much on the face". My fault. You're right, it's abit too much. Thanks for pointing out!

Good candid shot. I think the lack of focus is alright. But spot metering on the guy's face will help to make the capture more 'exposure focus'.

Imran, thanks for the tips on spot metering. I guess my next shot would probably gets better with it.

Since my boyfriend is an example of utter geekiness, I can totally relate to this picture. Very nice moment captured and well framed.
