    just about caught this shot as she walked away.

    the auto focus went to her shoulder rather than face, but i think i've got away with it.

    almost out the shot and not ideally place in the frame, but i still think it works... what do you reckon?

    That's a fab shot - expression, tones, depth of field and the model. :thumbup:
    The 'missed focus' is not noticable at all.

    Nice capture. :D

    I'm curious. What focal length did you use?

    With a picture of such a quality, she shouldn't have walked away, and should have stayed for a bit of posing... :(

    thanks for all the comments everyone

    yes, i wish i'd framed it better but i was too slow, oh well.

    Mark: i took it with a 60mm prime if that's any help? 20D though so 1.6 crop
