    You better start saving for a EOS 1D Mark IV!! It proves that it's never to early to start 'em up.:smile:

    Your Treating ? :cloud-9-039:
    I'll give him the M5 in that case :2thumbs:

    I'll spring for the 35/2.8 Biogon, so he has a lens :biggrin:

    Thank You-Thank You-Thank You-Thank You-:hail::hail::hail:

    good subject... the images would be much better in black & white and a shallow depth of field to isolate the subject. Ultimately, you'd want to eliminate the flash and go with nice soft light, coming through a window, for example. But I realize you didn't have that option here.

    In the final shot, I would probably crop in a little tighter on the 'face' and try to implement the rule of thirds (but that's my personal preference in most cases).

    I also think shots like that are best when you can get a little of the person's expression included, or eye contact. That's why I strongly prefer your first shot. Great expression!

    Maybe.
    I usually go past the ideal, and back off the sharpening a few times as I adjust the radius and threshold,
