    Hello. This is my first image post here and would really like some feed back to kinda know where I stand. This is the way the picture came out of the camera.

    Camera: Nikon D200
    Shutter: 1/320
    F-Stop: 5.6
    Focal Length: 130MM
    ISO: 100

    Please give me any critiques or advise that you have. If you want to be blunt about anything feel free to. I can take it.

    You will probably be seeing a lot of me on here. I am sorta a forum junkie.

    Beautifully shot, although it seems the cheek is more in focus, and I would've preferred the eye to be sharper instead.

    Wonderful tone though, and great lighting.

    Let's see more! :)

    That is a very nice picture. Is it a crop, or were you that close?

    Great use of diagonal lines. The lighting is very good, but a bit harsh on the tip of the nose. I would have like to see a bit more life in the eye.

    Well done and please keep posting.

    Thanks for the comments everyone. This seems to be a very helpful place. I will be posting more for sure

    I was a in pretty close. This is not a crop.

    Don't worry. I wasn't breathing heavily as i shot it.

    When in really close stop down the lens more F11 - F16 will keep all features sharp. H

    130mm means you were kinda further away right? although you just said you were pretty close. i may just not understand focal length, but i was under the impression that the higher the focal length number, the more you're zoomed in and therefore, further away from the subject.
