like to hear some comments about this photo.
*like how well the bokeh and etc

I think it's ok, the bokeh is a little distracting. I don't like the flowers, they are blurry, and it takes away from the sharpness of the image, it looks more of slow shutter than motion blur.

But I really like the idea of blurry petals, and the girl blowing.

I was surprised with the distance sharpness of the lens in rapid action.

Great portrait lens as well

Very nice!  Very Karsh-ish.  Even though I'm obviously looking at it on a monitor, it "feels" like it was printed on fiber based paper!

I assume this was split toned?  If so, would you be willing to share your settings?

+ 1.  I was so blown away by this lens that I resolved to buy just primes.  Mostly.

great shot!

if you have shot raw and lightroom i would suggest pulling the highlight down a tiny bit to take a little emphasis off the hair highlight it draws your eye away from her face. I would possibly tweek the contrast up a tiny bit too


Really like it. Very original idea blowing the flower petals. The petals blend in nicely with the bokeh. Probably just a coincidence?, but a nice blend of colors also.
