Gorgeous. My pre-and post-recital shots would have consisted of me hyperventilating with my head between my knees. This is a much nicer mood!

Wow, great shot. Just out of curiosity I looked at the exif, and it said the photo was taken with the 50 1.2L, looking at your gear list you also have a 50 1.4, is the 1.2 really worth the extra money over the 1.4?

O.O as the photographer? I'm pretty sure it's the performers who are supposed to be on edge :)

22" BD w/40* grid, powered by 1x 580EX II.

Very fine photo.

I'm a newbie, could explain your setup? I think i deciphered the above as a 22 inch beauty dish with a 40degree honeycomb grid, correct? Did you have it on a stand, and at what distance, angle, height to your niece? Does the BD and grid cause the dramatic light dropoff, or is there something more too it?

Thanks for any info you might provide!

Thank you! The 50L 1.2 has always been a dream lens since the first time I tried it. The color, contrast and sharpness (from 1.2 - 2.0) is much better than the F1.4. Once you get to the F2.8 and up, both lens are pretty darn sharp. The F1.2 is just dreamy and bokehlicious..lol As far as it being worth the extra money, that would be up to you and your budget.
