Thanks for the wonderful score and the nice comments everyone. To be in the lofty company of Wendy and Jennifer is an honor.

Julianne observed right - the focus was a little soft on the camera. Running back and forth from the camera, took a few shots to get the head tilt, the shirt folds and the focus correct. Given that I'd put it off till the last minute, ran out of safe time for more shots.

Thanks for that very useful tip Johanna!

Incidentally, I took inspiration for this shot from the movie "The Rum Diary"

Congrats on the ribbon. Next time, for dof on selfies: yarn. Tie it to the tripod, cut it to the exact length of the focus point :-)
