it wasn't wide enough....

you've clipped off her chin

To be honest I think Pentax Lenses are far too good for female portraits and you go and take one with a Ltd

I know you want to show us what your new toy is capable of but do the lady a favour and soften it a little

Ooops still too sharp though

I remember some time ago (before I even used Pentax) reading a review on a Pentax lens aimed at portraiture (don't ask me which or when) but the review praised the lens for it superb sharpness and clarity but added that was NOT what you needed when shooting portraits especially of the fairer sex

I have a Hoya 135mm f2.8 m42 jobbie and it appears in the very limited use I have given it to render details in that slightly soft portrait friendly manner as it was meant to

I should take a few more portraits

Nice shot David - I like the framing
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.

Nice photo.

I'm told for really startling results do the same image with a fisheye lens. This will prevent unwanted calls for portraits. I'd love to try one.
