  1. After shooting several thousand frames for last two months thought i might like to share few images with you guys/gals...suppose you can take any picture with any lens, and than include 85 f1.4 in the frame :biggrin:



    Mind you Matej (my nephew) although only five yo managed to snap one of me...

    I like the last two the most...very sharp focal point on the eyes.

    Good job!
  3. Thanks Dave,

    Last two were taken on D300 / 85 f1.4 AFD combo, so no surprise there as sharpness is concerned :smile:. Top two were taken on D40 /18-200 AFS VR DX combo, passable snapshots IMHO :Love:.
