    Although this is more poignant as a B&W I couldn't miss the chance to show the lovely color


    Years ago I upgraded from a D200 to a D700 and bought the Nikon 24-70 and 70-200 and was just enthralled by the beauty of the images.
    I had that same experience today when I took out my new Sony A7r II and shot a bit with the Zeiss 85 1.8

    Please look at this shot above as a picture and then look at the clarity and detail of this 100% crop

  3. I see it as she is looking at her grandkids playing. :)
  4. I prefer the B&W. Quite a fine shot and well processed. I'd probably increase the white of her blouse and the man's hair behind her - they seem to stand out a bit more in the color shot. I might also play with the benches to bring out their strong graphic element.

    I see you're a glass-half-full kind of guy

    Thanks - and I very much agree with you about shirt.
  6. Cool shot. For me it was more like... "ugh, I wasted $10 on Bud Lite... again!!"
