    Took a trip this weekend to Leon, and managed a couple of pictures that look great! (that is, truckloads other that need some adjustment or went just bad)

    I had my wide angle mounted, but pictures didnt quite ring for me, so I went to my telephoto (BTW new legacy glass, Tokina 70-210mm F/4-5.6 SD) for day shots, focused instead in the details of the balloons, other night shots where with a Rokkor 50mm 1.7 and the 16 mm

    I like the "big balloon" shots. But that last one of the woman holding the paper balloon is magical.

    Thanks! Yes! I started looking for the expression later after that shot, I like the first night shot in this set, the most, the facial expressions had so much of the general feeling on the area.
