    Hi S,

    It could be your intention, but IMO I think the image is too soft. You do have nice lighting though. Best Regards

    Sinh,


    Thanks for the critique. I wanted the focus to be her face, but probably should have stopped down a little more...

    Your depth-of-field with that lens, that close, would probably be less than 2 inches. And f1.4 will produce soft results. The only way to get the entire subject sharp at that aperture would be to shoot from further away. But I like the shallow depth of feld for the intimate nature of the image. And the softness works very well. Nicely done!


    I generally don't want photos of people to pick up every detail (unless that's the object of the photo). Do we really want to see every pore, zit, and whisker?


    Here is a handy tool for determining your depth-of-field:

    I like the picture, even though I'd like it if the eye were sharper. =)
