My personal favorite for 2008. I'm very pleased with how this came out and in print it looks fantastic! IMHO of course. :-) I get to enjoy it everyday as this photo is framed on my desk at work.

Awesome shallow DOF!! Very pretty eyes with a perfect expression. Enough of a real smile to not feel like a "posed" shot. His shirt compliments his eyes really well. This would even be a great senior shot. 9 -BB

Great sharpness in the eyes and nice falloff of sharpness to really accent the subjects face. Nice non-distracting background.

I love the DOF here, especially with both eyes falling in the field of focus which isn't always the case with some poses. I bet you're really pleased with this :)
