    This is my first attempt at a portrait with my new lense. I know I've got a lot to learn, since I've never really done this type of photography. Definitely challenging to get a good shot while holding the camera out in front of me with this heavy lense. Took 9 shots and I thought this one came out the best. Shot in natural light with very minimal pp done in LR. I guess all that is left is for you to let me know what you think.

    Mahalo!

    ...and thanks again to everyone that made comments on my "Playing with Fire" thread. There will be more to come.

    I like the graininess of it, but i also think it would benefit from some sharpening to bring out the character of your face's texture.
