  1. Okay, my turn...here's why I got my 85f1.4 (bought used). Yes, I wanted it for indoors sports shooting, but I also wanted it for portraits like these...

    C&C? Yup! Thanks for looking....

    I always take a look whenever it is the 85/1.4. Once again it is proven an absolute great lens for portraiture. Good work!

    welcome to the 85-club

    That lens is far more versatile, has more applications, than most non-owners will ever know. You will find a plethora of applications for it for sure.

    Nice work. Nice indeed lens!
     
  8. Thanks Banhup & Vernon, was able to go and make that blue channel correction that @nuteshack suggested, good learning opportunity..
