Shallow dof as I was very close to the subject. I've done a tripod test and my copy seems to be good, if there is any softness it's user error on my part. Really like this lens and only wish I could go full frame with it.

Still looks pretty sharp but just not on the eyes. Maybe you swayed back or it front focused on the hair over his forehead.

Yeah I'm sure I did move. Being 2 he doesn't stay still very long so I was wobbling about over the top of him haha. I've checked my copy with a focus chart and am pretty happy it's not back or front focusing. I should have just done f2.0 instead of 1.4!

In fact, here is a comparison with another photo in the series which WAS tack sharp (at 1.8 but I think that's not too significant). I just preferred the left one for his expression. :)

forgot to shoot in raw, and this is what i came up with in pp..kinda like it. Maybe I should try selective coloring.

I've been dying for many months to get the sigma 30mm 1.4, but now that I recently got it and the 50mm 1.4, I seem to use the 50 more often. 30mm seems just a little too long, or a little too short for my purposes. If I didn't have the 10-20mm, I'd certainly use it more. I think when I had the 17-50mm 2.8 tamron lens, I used either 17 or 50mm the most.

not the best technically, but I kinda like it. This is the best I could do with this jpeg also :\

I have been trying to shoot something different, and grow my skills. I really never shoot people, mainly just macro and landscape, so this has been fun. What do you guys think?

great photos!

For #2, I think the photo could benefit from a little more vibrance/saturation at least in the grass. It looks a little drab. I dunno why, but the photo in general looks a little grey, even with color. The cooler look in #3 works for me, though.

I agree with hyogen's saturation comment but that is a really nice set overall. #1 is very sharp but #3 is my favorite.
