    Thanks would have loved f4 or better but even with flash the best i could get was f2.8 think its time for a sb 600 or 800 just another thing to talk the wife into... :lol:

  4. I like the close crop on the image. Her hair and skin tones are good but focus falls off a little for her left eye. The expression on this cute little girl is not particularly flattering, primarily because she appears to be grimacing rather than smiling. It's not a bad picture but could be so much better with a different expression. It is definitely a keeper and one that she will look back on and laugh.

  6. I would have liked to have seen her from the other side, since that was painted.
