Default To papera: 50.

okay, is there a fast wide angle nikon lens ? like a 18mm 1.4 ? - that would be ideal you know..

wide would have had more of the street, more of the story and it would have the story of the "detail in silhouettes" that has shown up on your mac too..with street more is always good, i just feel the rest of the scene would be alot bluer (late twilight) and that would be just magic in terms of the atmosphere of Kargil, with all its history and war etc..

my WB is always sunlight, dont know why the exif reads fine weather...

anyway let me know cris..take care.

Default re:

nah, the next wide angle at 1.4 is the 24mm - all the others (20, 16 and 14mm) are at 2.8 ...
I don't know, I don't think (personal opinion) that there's an appropriate lens for certain shots... I change them all depending on the frame I have in mind and the light conditions. I don't think in terms like "oh, street photo - let's go wide angle", I think "oh, no light - let me get my fastest lens", ahahah... maybe because I live in a country where light and clarity and weather are a challenge
but to go back to your photo: it depends on what you wanted to shoot, really. if you wanted to give an idea of the street, or the atmosphere, well, then wider would have been better. if you wanted to show a moment, a person, then the 50 was enough.
and anyway, you can always step back a few meters and shoot more, with the 50...
well, I am off to Sail 2010 - hundreds of ships, tall ships and boats are entering Amsterdam's harbour in a few hours... got to get my stuff ready!
(and it's bad weather again

Default street stuff

you are right, not all street scenes require a "wide" approach, well this one did, there was just so much going on, i just feel this is one of the many elements around..hence being "limited" was nagging me..even now..

the only problem is when you step back the scene changes and you loose definition, you are not making the same photograph, chances are you might not make that photo..

i have backed out many times that way and when i go back the moment is lost, the patterns are lost, that's street..that's the challenge...hence fast and wide, at least you might end up composing what you want..

good luck with the Sail shoot..bad weather ruins everything, when there is no light there is no photography..its that simple..
