    What a neat opportunity! I absolutely love that second shot. Wonderful perspective and DOF--I love how you can make out the woman peeking over at you in the background. It draws me in and keeps me there for a while. Nicely done. thumb.gif

    Thank you. That's my favorite too.

    It reminds me of a quotation I read at some point, which I will have to paraphrase now, something like:
    Photography is all about what is in focus and what is out of focus.

    On the third shot, I like how the main figure has no head, but Bill's head floats on the book -- you have a bit of a sense of humour, I see...

    In your last shot, I want to crop off most of the people on the far left because they don't seem to add anything, imo. Maybe even as tight as the left side of the man with the black and gray logo jacket. To my eye, that places a little more focus on the lady in red turning towards you and the sign.

    I agree with the last one. But I'm starting to get particular about my crops, cause they get really pixelated if you do too much. SO I sometimes just don't.

    I am curious as to the expressions in the Secret Service guys eyes as they look not at Clinton, but at the crowd.

    My eyes are more drawn to them, than to Bill himself.

    Great shots, its about more than just the main person, but about the event as well.

    It is the purpose of life that each of us strives to become actually what he is potentially. We should be obsessed with stretching towards that goal through the world we inhabit.

    What a great series of shots, even if I do say so as your father.

    These are cool shots that tell a great story, not only of the President, but of the folks and kids in the crowd as well. Very well done.
