Nice study.
IMHO, would have been better with greater DoF. My eye is immediately drawn to the OoF lips and chin. We are programmed to look at faces that way - eyes, mouth, nose. There have been lots of studies done on how we examine faces.

I very nearly posted a photograph of the Beijing Opera House taken by an architect who is a friend of a friend, D80 + 18~200 at 20mm. Hardly its best FL!! Or a very good lens. But a wonderful piccy; beautiful composition. I refrained from posting it because it isn't mine to post.

thx John, if you pick your lenses carefully for Nikon there certainly is some great glass out there, and then you look at the 18-300mm review and bleh
