If I could move faster, I would try to ruin your photo

    Great photography, but I have a suggestion. I think you need to use a faster lens, maybe a 1.8/f so his head is the only thing left in focus. The foot seems to draw my attention and it conflicts with his head.

    Thanks everyone!

    David Leberfinger trust me, a faster lens is on my wish list :) I'm saving up for one.

    Matt Katzenberger I tweaked the colors/tones a bit in Photoshop, I used the Curves tool to bring out the contrast a bit more :)
