    .... is just too short for portraits, unless you catch people at the right angle. I took about a dozen, but unfortunately she was frog-faced on about nine of them! I should have put on the 50mm, but laziness got the better of me. :biggrin:

    I don't know about anyone else, but Lightroom does one hell of a job when it imports the RAW files (converted to DNG). They virtually need nothing done to them unless you want to get creative.

    A touch of glamour glow, and that was it....

    Lovely image thatb I am sure she is pleased with - it captures her personality and displays an air of inquisitiveness and confidence with a hint of humour showing through.

    I agree with you completely. Of course I dent hurt to have a great model, does it? I've, personally, always preferred to be at arount 135mm ( equiv) for portraits. I think you've done really well to even get one shot that looks that good. I don't know that I could have done it with the 20mm.
