This is a shot of my girlfriend from a vacation we went on with my family last summer that I've just now decided to post up. Some will say to crop out the window, but I like it the way it's cropped right now.

It looks like only the very tip of the right eye is in focus.

Yes, a wider DOF would help, I hadn't noticed it until posting up here. As a result, her left eye looks a bit soft.

Agree with the above.as well as more contrast will bring her forefront of her setting?


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

This is cropped too loose for the DoF you used - makes it hard to focus on the subject.

sorry - I do not like it

It doesn't do much for me.

Looks soft and lacking "pop".

...Flo's version made it a little more interesting, though.

I don't mind the shallow DOF. You focused correctly on the near eye.
I don't think the window on the right adds anything of value to this shot.
The combination of window light and fill rendered very flattering light.

You have a good eye for light, and she is very photogenic. I hope to see more of her.

FLO this is a nice PP you did on this photo. The main subject is more in focus than the rest of the photo. I hope you share a few of your tips with the OP. :-)

Flo, thanks for the edit, I like it a lot. I never went through and edited anything from that trip, so I'll give an edit a go later on. And everyone, thanks for the comments.

Curtis, light is definitely something I try to work at. Coming from you, that comment really means a lot! You'll surely be seeing more of her, especially once my tax return arrives and I finally purchase my lights.
