    Nice portraits! Your lens is dreamy!

    I also like how the tree frames the woman in the first shot.

    Just superb! The closest I will come to your dream lens is to enjoy the images you post, but that's OK. What a treat...one can only imagine how beautiful these large images are viewed as a physical print.

    It is a great read.
    Ooooooooh. $65. Can I borrow your copy

    For Tri: Actually, the bokeh in the 14X17 of the elder in the chair is troubling to me. That of course is personal preference and completely subjective. I'm speaking of the oof area above and left.

No right or wrong way just how my feelings are expressed at the time with the image I have before me and how I feel about it.

    This is such a terrific book it is under-priced in my mind. I have hundreds of books and it is one of the two best Iown.
