Haven't posted in a while, bandwidth issues with Photobucket apparently!

Here are a selection of people candids taken on the streets of Amstrerdam.

Mostly done with the 70-200L f/4 (love this lens!), pp done in Lightroom to convert to black and white.

Gone for quite a high contrast b&w effect, no sure if it'll be to everyone's taste but as always, feedback is more than welcome.

These are great. What focal length do you find yourself shooting at the most for candids? I'm currently debating whether or not I need a longer lens.

Those are nice. Looks like a great city for candids.

I'd say it's usually closer to 200 than it is 70. Typically this allows you to get the shot without attracting the attention of the subject.

Have to say the USM on the L is a real advantage with these kind of shots as often there is little time to catch the expression you want.
