BTW - The original uncropped image looks like this. I don't understand why people feel like they needed to crop it. I think it looks much better in original form. I like the bokeh on the 135DC.

Actually, they probably cropped it to fit the editorial better. By the way, they have a link to the "enlarged" version which looks uncropped to me.

Nice photo, and congrats on being run!

Thank you.

I checked again, and the "enlarged" version is just the same crop, same size. I'm sure you're right that it fit their editorial layout better in scrunched format.

I am one of those people who feels that you can almost never see a picture any better than you saw it at the moment you took it. If there is ever a "better" picture, it is scarcely to be found within that selfsame rectangle, but somewhere else entirely.
