Nothing should detract from the dog! The shot is about the dog! The bokeh and blur backdrop are great, "not to distract our attention", and to bring our eyes to the beautiful dog!

Good Work!

As I said, use a different zoom lens for deep dof so you can frame deep dof shots. For Portraits, F2, F2, Only F2

+1, +1, +1. Provided you don't sacrifice the sharpness of the dog. It's the value of a fast aperture lens to pop up the subject. If use it at F4 and up most times you waste this lens, and better to get 70-200L/4.0 IS or 70-200L/2.8 IS II, as sharp as, have IS and more versitile as a zoom.

yep, and if they added IS to the 135, I'd pay $1300
