    Cool! Interesting and colorful, with a frame within the frame.

    Well shot, I’m interested in the 58 1.4 since I traded out the sigma 50 1.4 ART


    Sent from my mobile device because I’m either outside or too lazy to get my MacBook..

    @Jeff15 Thanks!

    @D7K Thanks...I have only had the lens a couple of weeks and have not done much shooting with it...

    But I can tell you, I really like how it renders the images...

    Cheers,

    Enezdez

    I think here you might consider a cropping part way down the blue halter top making the image horizontal and more about the frame within a frame theme.

    To me this is an 'almost' image. That is, it almost, but (IMO, of course, YMMV) doesn't quite work. There are no major issues, but several small ones... The tambourine feels like it should be centered on her face, not off to one side; the shadow it casts on her chest, and the cropped left elbow... all very minor, but to me, visual irritants. I agree that a horizontal crop would work, possibly just below her bra? Belly dance costumes are great to shoot; I used to do a lot of it. I hope you get a chance to work with this model again!
