Why not? The Durante Effect. Do you have a shot of this lovely lady with a longer lens? I'd like to see if her schnoz is really that big.

You had to get close to the lady to take this shot with 30mm, even if it was on a camera APC-S. Or you cropped the image?

Not everyone would appreciate you getting close to his or her face with your camera.

Okay this does it. Can we have Nute banned or something? He's clearly abusing the lens and equipment.

One word only: superb!

Only if it's in good hands :cool:. It was clever of you to tilt the lad's head. The perspective distortion has made his eyes larger, and you avoided the dreaded Durante Effect.

For those of you who are too young to remember Jimmy Durante, here's a picture that shows why the Durante Effect is named for him.
