As close as you were standing, it would have taken more like f/16, then your ISO would be through the roof or your shutter speed too low.

I love my little EF 70-200mm f/4L IS. It's incredibly sharp, light and versatile.

Wow C5, that's a beautiful shot of a very beautiful young lady.


My trip to the West Beach last night to capture shots of The Red Arrows aerobatic team was a waste of time.
Unfortunately, due to bad weather, they diverted down the West Coast of Scotland back to England, so I never got to see them.

In order to satisfy the 'request' from Dave for an in-flight shot, this gull was the only thing I saw above head height last night !

Thanks. Coming from you, that's high praise indeed

Being our own worst critic...I dislike: the rule of 1/4's and cropping off her leg.

Love the gull shot, Alan.

Thanks guys.

Talk about whiskers, I love your young lady C5. Did you use a gold reflector, or what to get that great light? It really works on a blond.

Well done, my friend. I like the vignette added in post. I hardly ever do that, but should probably do it more, particularly when the BG is plain and very even.

Thanks for the kind words, Dave. It was a ST-E3 trigger with a 550 off to her 11:00 (on dry land), to fill in a shadow from a nearby tree. I was in the water

If you've got another shoot planned with her, do you need anyone to hold a reflector or anything

Well I can't compete with the pretty girl!

This one looks like a Model Railroader Magazine cover to me
