Prime Lens - Focal Length Equal Human Eye 2/2
Challenge has finished
Show me your very best picture using a prime length equal to human eye (43 mm AFAIK). A normal prime lens was usually 40-55mm on "full frame" SLRs - in practice, it was most commonly 50mm supplied as a "kit" lens. Building a lens of this focal length seems to be rather easy, there are a lot of very nice and sometimes even cheap lenses out there. Aperture (F stop) and DOF (depth of field) shouldn't matter, but I expect some beautiful examples of (very) narrow depth of field. Please do confine to available light (no flash) and leave any macro shots in the drawer.

Taken with my prime 50mm in doors using existing light. Then tweaked expose, highlights and mid tones to brighten the image. I was trying to mimic some very bright and colourful images I had seen in a high street clothes shop (GAP I think). Would liked to have improved his eyes, but couldn't find a way of doing it reaistically.
