    Hi Luiz,
    great set of photos and they all look very sharp. Presumably the lighting was a challenge at times, what ISO were you working at?

    The exposures are spot on with good detail in the highlights and shadows. Well done!
    Cheers,
    Paul

    Hi, Paul,

    I left the ISO on auto. Therefore ISO varied according to the light.
    Some photos came to ISO 3200, another 250.
    The noise Nex5N works well. Great little camera.
    Thanks

    wow I agree, very good pictures, that's why I love my nex5n and his great sensor, get a high performance in low light conditions.

    Thank you guys for appreciating my photos.

    I finally got a decent wide angle lens for my Nex5N. The Voigtlander Super Wide 15mm f4.5 for Leica M. Now I can shoot angles more open landscapes and architectures. It is very small!

    The editing was a bit heavy but I liked ...

    Great photos Luiz! Especially those photos of the dancers, expert timing with the shutter to capture beautiful facial expressions and dance posture. Wonderful timing, well done!

    Agreed, I can't imagine that being especially easy to shoot. The results turned out great though!
     
  11. The ballet pictures are very good. Must have been difficult with the poor light and also the coloured stage lights make it hard to find the proper white balance.

    Hi Luiz,
    I also like the photo of the dressmaker, the lighting on her face and hands is awesome!

    If it were me, I'd add a small amount of vignetting to the photo.
    Thanks for sharing,
    Paul

    Hello everyone, thanks for the comments.

    Hello Paul, yes the first photo of the dressmaker deserved a little vignetting to improve the image. The second photo of the dressmaker I put a bit of vignetting to simulate the spotlight.
    Thanks for the comments.
    Greetings,

    Hi Luiz,
    I love the colours of the old bandstand but in my opinion the tree gets in the way!
    Cheers,
