    Awesome! Lighting and processing looks really natural on this one!

    BTW, how do you like using the 35-100/2.8 as a portrait lens as compared to the 75/1.8?

    At 35mm wide open, it's not that great for edge-to-edge sharpness. If you see the original image, her hands are sharp while her eyes and hair are not. And this is after I focused on her eyes, too.

    Longer focal length are much better

    Can you micro adjust the Auto focus?

    I'm not sure why I couldn't get the eyes sharp when shooting at 35mm full body. I was for sure focusing on the eyes. It was like that for every single variations of this shot and I re-focused each time (habit).

    I still prefer the 75mm for image quality and overall sharpness, but the 35-100mm is versatile. Plus, I can quickly switch to video mode since it has OIS.

    Good lens overall, though. Not as sharp as a Nikon 70-200mm or Canon 70-200mm II, but a solid lens at a quarter of the size and weight.

    Easy to carry around all day with the GH3 and battery grip.

    the pp makes a lot of difference! Would be interested if you could explain what you did.

    Quite a bit of work, actually. I do a lot of things on practically all my post-processing, from skin work, color correction, liquify, etc.

    Usually I use a combination of:

    frequency separation
    dodge&burn on a soft layer
    layer adjustments (hue-sat-lum, black&white on overlay or soft light blend mode, curves, levels)
    Selective high-pass sharpening

    Well, you guys will see more photos of her. She's becoming my muse in photography. We have lots of creative ideas for shoots =)

    Judging by the above responses, this board may have a few ideas, if you run out. :eek:

    I prefer the "natural" before PP. Either one is "smokin hot"!
    Nice work! Looked at your other work - what camera do you normally shoot?
