Critical focus is not on the eyes here.....eyelashes and hair are sharper than the actual eyes.

Exactly. It was for a hair and makeup artist and at f/2 you can't have it all in focus from that far back but thats what she wanted. Would have had to been much closer in, like a true headshot, to get it all or stopped down a bit. That is still quite acceptable for a glamour shot :-)

hehe ok sure.

You can have the eyes critically in focus and still showcase the hair and make-up.....

Edit: only bringing this up because it isn't a particularly good example of 'proper' focus and recompose technique

Does "quite acceptable" cut it for you in your professional work?

Wow! Something must have crawled up your butt. Or are you always this nasty? I suspect that it is the latter.

Don't bother replying to this post, I don't intend to look at the thread anymore.
