Thanks guys :-) she is a lovely model and had a great MUA too :)
It is a lovely shot. Have you tried to convert it to B&W? The eyes are captivating when you do.

I have a whole new respect for the 70-200f/28 II, I know it's a great Lens & I use mine a lot, but wasn't aware you could get this level of sharpness out of it for Portrait work, the lovely young Lady & the Make Up artist help, definitely, but there's great skills in an Image like this, well done Bornshooter.

Now, I just need to work out how to get the MUA & This Model to Tanzania before June 2013.

Thanks again :) the 70-200 mk2 is a beautiful lens this was shot at f5.6 the trick was nailing focus through the net,the holes were small i used spot focus for this too :).
I will let them know you are asking for them but i can come and model instead lol :P

May be try leaving the colour of the eyes in and get the rest B&W. The eyebrows and eyes are where you want people to focus - right?
Or may be the lip colour... Having shot B&W for a loooooong time I somehow have got hard wired for B&W. The nearest colour processing was 1000 km away in 1967! And it cost an arm and a leg compared to B&W contact print...

So we have had a bit of rain the past 24 hours.  One of the ponds by my apartment flooded so it went all over the place.

Sorry to hear that.  At least the 1DX is doing well... forget the car.  We know where our priorities lie!  :)

Show Off   :)

But seriously, great shot, an issue I always had with these shots was my reliance in using centre point focus (Hangover from the 5DMK2), so the Cat would almost always move off the Centre Point Focus resulting in OOF frames, I've re learnt to use all 61 Points & move the focus point to, in the case of a Leopard ready to go up a tree, his head at the top of the frame, in the case of your Cat shot, the head at the left of the frame, took a while to get out of bad habits learnt on the 5DMK2.

Hey guys....just love to read the dialogue between two experts in their field discussing how they do it....Awesome!  Of course it goes without saying that I'm much better than both of you combined and......totally kidding/joking....Love all shots from both of you!   Keep sending them in!!

This post might be the best on CR...truly believe that.
