  1. ....what's more...up close...

    I must be crazy or what. :biggrin:

    Anyway, I still like it:
    (NO sharpening)

    Taken up close with the Ai 28mmf2; 1/250s@f2.8.
    I love the smooth bokeh of this lens.

    Nice to break the rules once in a while.... what do you think?

    It's a nice shot! I would like it even more if the other eye was in focus, but that's the trade-off for the bokeh at f2.8.
  3. Believe me it is S*H*A*R*P*

    100% crop, NO sharpening in camera, no sharpening in post:

    Obviously, the controlled DOF was intentional, so as to focus (pun intended) the viewer's eye (pun intended again!) on her eye.

    I actuallly like this little girl's impish look:biggrin:
