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

Not just the reviews. An old friend bought the 18~200 lens as the "kit lens" with his D300. It performed exactly the way the 5 reviews of it I have read stated ... UGH!

BTW, while I am a great fan of FastStone Viewer, I would never even contemplate doing any sort of processing or re-sizing using it. I have found the results to be pretty ordinary when I tried it out for this ...
