Very recent. Every time we take No. 1 sons kids to the holiday home, I try and get a shot of one of them at least in this playground stainless steel tube. Trying out the very 'plasticy' Canon EOS 50mm 1.8 Mk2 here for general interest.

Other than not giving great confidence in terms of physical strength of the lens, the image quality seems very good to me. Focusing ring is a joke and I feel the need to be very careful changing lenses or you could actually turn the focus ring as you unlock he lens. If that happened, stripped gears become a real posibility. Bet they are plastic too.

A bit of cropping, dodging and burning and a smart sharpen.

EOS 7D with 50mmm 1.8. P set for speed. Single spot auto focus. Camera flash on. ISO400, 1/200 @ f6.3.

IMHO I would not dare too touch such a charming and well composed portrait, if anything I maybe inclined to make a tighter crop just in order to eradicate the unwanted space around the edges. Furthermore I could spend ages remove the hair from the around the eyes, but I feel that that would be too intrusive.

Regards Nathan

Please see modificication, I hope that you approve.

I understand where you are coming from. One of my rules is fill the frame. I was trying to keep the full circle and suggestion of it. Matter of opinion. The hair? Natural to me. She is a real tom boy. Too tidy would not look right.

Three things jump out at me - the mix of pastel pink and blue reflections; the angle, which is just sufficiently off-vertical to be quirky without being mannered; and the hair, which makes her look as though she's been having fun instead of being scrubbed and tidied up for a photo. Delightful, and real.

A lens highly regarded for optical performance, but not durability as you know.

Nice shot, - un tagged, - loaded a mod. Can you see whats been done? Apart from sRGB.

Got me, Willie. Had a few looks. Contrast up a bit? Sorry about tagging. Always tend to loose it in processing, then forget to put it back. Never actually noticed any difference on my screen, but might on others.

Oh.. she grows... I remembered her...Grin..Do you know, we have a Chinese saying, translates the meaning into English is that 'girls change when they grow, the more they change, the more beautiful they are.' Yeah, it is the case. And she knows how to play in front of the camera now.. SmileI really love the colour. I can't see any technical problem. Well done!
BTW, Thank you for the critique, Paul.
