The plane that is in focus is fantastic. I really like the B&W conversion.

What bothers me is the shallow depth of field. The blurred nose is a real distraction for me.

Agree with Bob above plus I would not have framed the face quite so close esp at the bottom. A portrait orientation would be a killer shot.

Thanks both. The shot was taken with an 85mm 1.2 wide open at 1.2.

I've changed the orientation - thanks Spike, I think this does work much better.

Crop is much better, catchlight as always makes a great portrait, nose....maybe he just has a fuzzy one?

I like the portrait orientation better too, but the shallow DOF doesn't work on this shot.
BTW, the exif data shows it was shot at f/2.5 rather that f/1.2.
Even at f/2.5, you had less than 1/2" DOF at that distance (.97m)


Canon 7D, 5D, 35L, 50 f/1.4, 85 f/1.8, 135L, 200L, 10-22, 17-55, 70-300, 100-400L, 500D, 580EX(2).

** Image Editing OK **

It would change the whole concept, but would you have any interest in the shot if it was cropped above and below his eyes? You'd get a strong capture of Grandpa's smiling eye and it would eliminate the fuzzy nose issue...

Image editing OK, encouraged, and expected. Thank you for helping me learn!

Thanks all.

Bob_R, you are quite right f2.5 ~ should have checked before posting!!

Cpam - I'll give that a go, but I worry that it will unbalance the image given that the eyes are so powerful.
