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.

I see this door handle near my home and shoot it under natural sunlight.

|Focal length:||40 mm|
|Shutter speed:||1/2000 sec|
|Notes:||I adjust the aperture to f/6.3 for limit the DOF to the center of the handle. I also choose ISO 400 to ensure high shutter speed (because holding the camera at hand) and a little exposure compensation of -1.3 EV to reduce a bit the highlights. Very little Photoshop processing, just slight levels tune and crop.|
