So I really liked this photo when I took it yesterday... the wife was indifferent...

She must have really high standards for your photography :)
A very beautiful expression captured!

Great images... parent pictures are key. They grow so fast...

I've recently shot almost an entire shoot with the 85L... love it.




Your portrait lighting is just amazing. I'd love to watch you work [if I had the money, I'd say I'd pay to watch you work :) ]

She's a typical mom.  Ok... everyone turn to me and smile.  So I'm not overly concerned with her opinion.

Mine is much underused. I have promised to used it more......especially as it cost £1.5k.  I have used it for street shooting on occasion to good effect

Also for city nightscapes.
