    Great idea. The portrait version is excellent.

    I really like the image itself! Lighting and colors are great! However, I don't see how using the 500mm on this image makes it unique. If that's not what you're concerned with, then I'd say you nailed it. Though when I read about your project I got the impression you wanted to feature photos that the characteristics of the 500mm made unique.

    The purpose is to shoot things that you wouldn't normally shoot with a 500mm i.e.. studio work, street photography, portraits etc.
    I'm trying to shoot things and NOT have it look like a 500mm lens was used i.e. limit the look of the compression by shooting on the flattest plane that I can and from slightly longer distances than what you would shoot with another lens.

    Ok, I see. That makes sense. I misunderstood what you were going for. And in that case, I reiterate that you nailed it! Without being told otherwise, I would have guessed it was shot with any number of standard studio focal lengths.

    If you are taking notes, my vote is for the portrait version of the first subject.

    Yes I went with the portrait version.
    I'm imagining this project is going to be a year or five before it's complete.
