    Yes, it needs to be recroped. Thanks for pointing that out.

    Interesting comment about the skin tones. I didn't delve into it, but I see your point. Although they use a Hispanic sur name common to this area, I wonder now if the one on the left is unmarried and the one on the right married into the family.

    My wife forbids me to ask such details 8)

    Great grab of two sisters - these sorts of pics dont happen all that often.

    Just a comment - I reckon it's about +0.5 EV too much and a little too sharp. In my experience, women like a softer look.

    That said, it's still a keeper.
     
  6. Excellent image John. The skin tones are very nice and the detail fantastic. Good job. I do agree with the comment by Paul about the difference in space between the right and left of the image.

    You should see it before the blur layer was applied if you think its too sharp now :)

    The D2X / 85mm f/1.4 combination is actually too cruelly sharp as a portrait instrument for most people. I didn't soften it more because of the usage: small web ads, news print reproduction, use in flyers, etc. I reasoned that those sort of media would further degrade sharpness.
