    Very nice capture?

    Wow! I think you did a fabulous job on this one. That lens is impressive and the range of tones in the composition is wonderful.

    Thanks everyone. It's funny now, but I quickly turned and snapped her merely as a demonstration of my FOV with the 75mm f/1.8 to a mate I was with who also has an OM-D. Literally 10 minutes later, we'd walked into a photo store in Sydney's George Street and he bought the only one they had. Top dollar too.

    I'd have liked to see a little detail in her dress, but she was standing in the shadows. I boosted the curves a little to see her face but the dress was just too dark.

    Nice lighting!!! Good timing, great exposure. Thanks for sharing. I think I need to get down-under so I can partake of some of your light.

    Chris the detail in the dress would have been nice but the soft living on the face makes up for it , drawing your eye to her face rather than the dress.
    Your friend paid top dollar the impulse purchase, he didn't get the 75/1.8 also, Aussie store prices can be very savage

    How about posting a shot of scope or sagitta. With the 75, I'd love to see one

    What maiden wants to listen to the concert when there's a cute satyr sitting next to her?

    Thanks Daniel

    The 75mm f1/1.8 is a rare beast still, and it was most definitely the only one in store at Paxtons. Even Foto Riesel didn't have any. He paid retail, but was not given a substantial disc out - merely $25 for being a regular customer.

    Looks as if there was a breeze behind her blowing the hair and dress. The light I g on her face is perfect. This is a very fine shot.

    Thanks Rev :) I'd like the tree behind her to be gone, but I'm otherwise happy with it.

    I was clicking through the threads and when i came upon this one and the picture came up I said 'wow' audibly. What a great moment captured with the right stuff at the right time. The light on her face is what holds it together so well.

    Thanks for sharing! I envy your possession of the 75mm. Lock it away tonight so I won't be tempted.....
