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.

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?

I use Nik silver efex 2 to get the split toned look. I think Silver Efex has the best toning and grain simulation of all the software I've used. I dial the toning in on each image individually but always turn paper toning completely off and set the balance at -50 or below.

What about this lens with my new 5D Mark III for fashion photography? I need one tele and don't mind if it's prime instead of a zoom.

It's my favorite lens, next to the 50L, easily suitable for fashion and portrait work. It also shines as a lighter, more discreet lens for street photographers. Creating beautiful crisp images with wonderful bokeh in lowlight, better than the current zooms in my opinion. Here's an image paired with the 5DM3, square cropped (You can see the full image at my Website under Journal > Amara).

I would like to share a bad shot.  The reason is that it illustrates two points about the lens.  The first here is the obvious lack of flexibility in sports, as with any prime lens.  However, this is quickly forgiven when considering the sharpness of the girl's face as she goes up for the layup.  This is 1DX, 135L, 1/500, f/2.2, ISO 5000.

Some exceptional images, there.  I love the 135L and love to see images that do it's capabilities justice.
