Actually, this location was quite secluded but yes, it was very difficult to shoot as it was hard to make our way down. There was not much space to stand to compose & the waves were constantly crashing against the rocks and spraying upward into the camera. I originally planned to use AB 800 with ND & Octa but the wind was to strong so I had to wing it with SB910 on a bracket. :-)

Where was this taken? Is it the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland? Beautiful photo!

Thanks for posting this follow up. Before I wrote what I did, I was going to add but didn't, that the appearance initially of a lack of Sharpness on the eyes could be a slight brown eye illusion effect I have seen in certain situations.

I'm not saying it is happening here but the close up is sharper than I would have thought.

I have found this brown eye effect to be real in certain light and it bugs me that it is because I'm one of those people that likes the eye very sharp. Anyways, my observation is that people with lighter colour eyes never have this happen as the camera sees through and picks up additional colours in the eye making it appear sharp but if you have a certain colour of brown and the light is hitting the eye in a certain way you can get a look that appears hazy and your brain immediately says it isn't sharp because you can't see detail - I think some of that is happening here.

Thanks for the follow-up.

That's an interesting insight, and it makes sense. I usually look at the eyelashes for evidence of sharpness instead of the iris, because the contour of the iris isn't all that sharp, and can vary from person to person, while the actual rim of the eyes and the eyelashes are much sharper because they aren't just a color/value change on a slightly round surface, but actual distinct forms with minute details.

have you tried using the focus peaking and shooting manual focus? i hope it becomes standard on DSLRs.

I often shoot in spontaneous situations where the subject is constantly moving instead of stopping and posing, so manual focus is just not going to cut it. For example, in this particular shot, she didn't stop and pose for me--she was in the middle of picking fruits and I just weaved all around her capturing candid shots. She happened to look my way and smiled, pausing for just a split second, before continuing to pick fruits.

I've finally decided to start a thread in the G&N subforum for the kind of photos the mod kept deleting from this thread whenever I posted them in the past. I'l be using that thread from now on to post any photos that I know wouldn't be accepted in this thread. You can check it out here: https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1465086

I have been wondering why you haven't been posting recently.

I really like the expression she has in this shot--it shows her contemplating something, with a slight hint of amusement.

She's always warning me to watch where I'm going on the escalator instead of busy taking photos. "You're going to fall to your death one of these days if you keep this up." :lol:

I can see where you would be distracted going up the escalator behind her :)

Mostly natural light but a touch of on camera flash for fill and catch-lights (albeit small). PP with LR and Portrait Pro. cc welcome.

Thanks mate! I occasionally suffer a crisis of post-processing skills - that's when I am not posting anything and am sulking and planning to overthrow the world :)

This shot was lucky, methinks.
