she's a pretty model, but you need to work on the lighting. the image is very underexposed and the shadow is very harsh.

try putting a lamp at the base of the stool facing the wall to kill the shadow?

Very pleasing bokeh. What do you need a 2.8 for?

yes sir. I also just picked up a 70-200mm f/4 L IS which I am very interested in using. Thanks for the "pleasing bokeh" comment on my explorer 2. I was merely practicing....

Another "fun" pic...I will be taking it down the morning. Save it if you want to.

^ the original is PERFECT the way it is. you can try turning it b@w to compare, but otherwise, no photoshop required. most portraits are best with little to no photoshop unless you're doing glamor photography. one thing you can try in the photo above is to futher blur out or completely remove the background on the left side for it is somewhat distracting.
