      I have this same setup. The 85 on the 5D MK II will poke your eye out it's so sharp.

      Great Photo Lisa! I got my 5D MK II at Beau Photo as well and use my 85 1.8 as my prime!

      Not that I'm a portrait master but I think you should have closed up the aperture a bit as the nose seems out of focus a little. Other than that it's a gorgeous photo!

      I've always admired the work you've done with "enthusiast" gear just like mine. But the 5D think has been lurking around my back door too so maybe it is time.

      Lisa how about post some full quality images so we can open them and see just how much detail that 5D can deliver?

      great choice of colour for the background as it matches her eyes' colour. NIce bokeh not too intrusive.

      I like the background. Did you do a lot of photoshopping?

      Hmm not sure if I like this. Maybe because I think it looks like the cover shot of a photoshop techniques book. What I do like is your willingness to give anything a shot. When your learning its really important to explore all kinds of photographic technique.

      I would swear that's Anna Friel! Lovely portrait, certainly captures those baby blues. I've always been a sucker for big eyes.
