Just a shot I got at a Birthday party that I just loved, shooting wide at 2.8 and managed to nail the focus on the eyes and the bokeh was beautiful. Wish I could get every shot this good! Makes me wonder how much I would really love a 85mm 1.2 :rolleyes: Wishful thinking I know.

Its sort of a candid shot, so haven't retouched the face. Left the lad a bid messy since he was happy enough running around at his party.

Would like an opinion on black & white conversion and colour - which one is preferred if you can take a second to comment.

1. Colour

3. Photoshop Black and White - higher contrast

Thanks for the feedback folks!
Markd120 - He does look a little bit guilty in retrospect, but wasn't up to any mischief.....for a change!
