That first shot just bugs me Mike (sorry). She looks like she was added to the background, or maybe the background is a bit cluttered and overwhelming. I don't like her so centered and her face and neck shadows look odd (lightening/processing​?). I like the face/eyes in #2 (but maybe crop out some of the left side) and I like the concept in #4

It is a little cluttered but the idea was to get the fall colors in the photo and even at f2.8 i couldnt blur it all out :D was shot with two lights and the sun as a back light. The weird shadows are from light not post, that was caused because my fill light being a little hot. I could have put her a little off center but i think it works for this shot.
Anyways, if i can get that kind of seperation, i consider that a win lol :P Looking at it the only thing I would do is remove the stick growing out of her head, oops

cropping #2 would leave a very tight/akward crow in my opinon. I dont mind the dead space, its not drawing away from her at all.

Thanks for the feedback!

It should always be glass before body, and pretty model before glass. I could put her in front of my old 350D/kit lens combo and come out with nice pics.;)

This is a really solid series though and if I weren't a prime person I would be all over the MII. The 70-200's are just to heavy to be lugging around for what I shoot nowadays.

I actually like #1 the best. Love the foreground bokeh with the plants. Don't like the harsh shadows on her chest from the flash... And don't like how her right arm is darker than her left. Great shot overall. Got the same lens and I will always use it unless space is limited. Best lens ever

haha i totally agree with you! This series was good because a. really sweet model b. nice light. c. nice glass. d. good camera body. 5. okay camera operator :P

This is a really solid series though and if I weren't a prime person I would be all over the MII. The 70-200's are just to heavy to be lugging around for what I shoot nowadays.

It is a super heavy setup the 70-200 with a 5dii, i can only image how bad it would be to hand hold this lense with a 1dx or similar. I appreciate the kind words!

I agree with you on all counts, i need to pay more attention to my shadows and the strength of my fill light. Definitly with you there, i will be using this lense for pretty much everything possible from now on!

Yea she is a real natural beauty and she has a personality to match ;)

I like them all but I think 5 is my favorite, I like how simple and clean it is. I would, however, clone out whatever that thing in the background is. Great job!
