thanks gerry, but no thanks

photography is art, and criticism is fine, but telling people how to crop or focus a shot? thats only your opinion... personally i am happy with how all three shots are cropped, and i particularly like having her legs out of focus as her face/eyes in

The first colour shot has beautiful lighting but the composition is unsettled. The top of her head is cropped. The second shot has her legs out of focus. They should not be in the picture. The black and white, however, makes up for that. It's really great.

I'm not being critical. I take shots like the first two as well, but I try to take them like the third!! If everyone says everything is fantastic, we don't learn.

I have an 85 f1.8 myself. A very good and very useful lens.
