Liverpool Transition III

Its a bit of an odd shot this. I didn’t want to use flash because its obvious I’m taking their photo then. So I shot at f/2.8 to make people stand out. For some reason though the background looks like a painting on a canvas. Its a little strange. I can’t decide whether it would be better to have shot at f/8 or not really. Sure the buildings would have been sharp but theres something I like about the single face standing out from the reset of the event. By god I love this D700 though. ISO 10,000! You don’t want to see a 100% crop because that is pretty noisy but at 25% its very nice.
