    Awwww, a cutie! Jane, great shot, but I think you could use a little glamour glow filter there. :biggrin:

    Are you enjoying the lens? :thumbup:

    Thanks, Kyle! Yes, I think glamour glow would be just the ticket! :rofl:

    Yes, I love this lens and it is great on the OMD E-M5!

    Maybe moving the flash off-camera will help reduce/eliminate that red-eye.

    Drinking less while chasing cheerleaders might help with the red-eye too!.

    I'd hate for that critter to get a hold on my lens or hood ... or face.

    Definitely want to soften that just a bit - the model would not find it flattering as it is! :biggrin:
