Technical notes

This is shot on Canon 40mm 2.8 lens at aperture 5 on full frame. 40mm seems an almost perfect every day focal length. The 40mm 2.8 STM is also sharp, edge to edge in a way that no other lens I own is (apart perhaps a Leica Elmarit 90mm). The rich colours (hardly enhanced, just a bit of vignetting to kill off unneeded corner detail and focus the eyes on the subject. There is no real sharpening either. An incredible lens.

    We would love to post that at toemail if you do not mind?

  3. Thanks for your kind words Ira. Looking back on this photo now, it has a very modern Cinderella feel.

    Hi Toemailer,

    Yes, feel free to post this on Toemail. You might want to take a look at changing your theme or some of your plugins as your site’s javascript froze modern Chromium (v38) on a quad processor MacBook Pro. Less is more.
