I could nit-pick but I'll just say I like it. Good job Marvin! Pretty cool lens, huh?

It's a GREAT lens.  There's a learning curve though. I prefer the 100 2.8 Macro better though.  And by the way, you can nit pick. I'm cool and probably know what you see already.  This is pretty much out of the camera into LR5 then through a couple of plugins and boom! Maybe 5 minutes work.

At what aperture?

I'd give a bit of room above the head, otherwise well done and nice bokeh, sweet.

Great photos on your web site of Rock Center festivities.

Thanks. My wife got VIP tickets. Buffet food and drink are very good but didn't have much time to enjoy as I had to go outside to take photos. What I saw onsite is different from showing in TV such as never saw Mariah Carey who recorded her programs earlier.  Good experience nevertheless.

I think I was a 1.8 and the crop is just something I did in LR5. There's gorgeous bokeh from lights in the background but like you said I cropped them out.

I could tell right a way that it was "out of the camera".
