Re: must be Polish

well for a Pole she has a very unusual name

Sinead O'Connor And she's as Irish as me. Irish girls can be pretty spectacular. Remember the Corrs?

Re: 70-300 L and a beautiful girl..

Framing, focus, exposure, dof - all great and she's certainly good looking, but somehow the composition still doesn't quite work for me. I find my eye drawn to the fur on the side of the hood that she's looking at.

Maybe if she was looking into the camera, or the lighting on/around her face were different... I don't know.

Maybe I'm just jealous

Re: 70-300 L and a beautiful girl..

I shot what was there. This was done surreptitiously. She had no idea I was shooting. We were at a race. She loves the shot herself!

She's a clubmate of my daughter's.

Re: must be Polish

Irish, Polish, they've all been ravaged by the vikings. That's where the spectacular genes come from.

Well caught then! It's so good I assumed it was posed.

oh... viking my a$$ please

obviously, you're right, but it's apparently the "local" infusion of blood (of the poor Polish or Irish ladies) that made today's mixtures so good. cause, you know, it's not like you have abundance of such beautiful ladies in Sweden

Re: must be Polish

This is not Sinead O'Connor the singer, you must mean another person with the same name?

Correct. O'Connor is a common name as is Sinead. This girl is a runner from Cork

Re: must be Polish

I didn't recognize her with the hat, she runs with Leevale, or at least she used to.  Mentioning the Corrs and Sinead together confused me, but I'm easily confused.

Re: must be Polish

Looks 1/3 Irish and 2/3rds Latvian.

So weird but she looks super extremely much like a relation did 20 years ago.

Irish people no more all look the same than Latvians

I have the same "problems" with the image and a questions - is it by purpose that he eyes are not in focus but the artificial fur is?

different sujet but also a beautiful lady - with 300 f/2.8 II

beautiful Lady from somewhere in the world

100% crop of the eye

maybe I am obsessed by sharpness but I like also contrast and light vs shadow - a complete composition of thins rather then a flat view - different sujet I have to admit and different lens
