    Beautiful B&W images. Very well done.

  2. Henry says:

    Lovely girl. Nice pair. I can’t believe she’s this much older from when i first saw your photos of her. Lucky father.

  3. Gary and Henry, thank you.

    Henry, I know I’m very lucky indeed… because of all of my children, and my wife.

  4. Both are lovely images. The 75 Summilux sure is nice, although it’s not something I would actually use. These would look great if enlarged, particularly the second one.

    Peter, the second one is a perfect “game” of DOF and OOF…in the first one there is a very good concentration in the face, but for me the OOF interferes/disturbs a little bit..too busy.

    • Thank you Karim and Andreas. The darkness necessitated the f/1.4 aperture… and wrt to bokeh, that’s always a personal thing as we all know.

      Even with the f/1.4 aperture I still stretched things technically (because she was constantly moving) by photographing at a slow shutter speed (1/60 sec) for this focal length. I’m quite surprised that there is no visible camera/subject shake evident.

        Sir Peter, you did a very good “job”( as always 🙂 ), the second one is so perfect and in the first one the white reflections in the background( OOF) distract me somehow, but they two together make sense..yes, and to read that you had to fight with low light and movement;-) makes this more valuable!

    Must…not…look…at…75 ‘Lux…

    Again with the 75 Lux, I see.


    A very beautiful duo, Peter.
