    Some great shots there. A couple I'd cut out if presenting them in a set (14, 16, 25 for example) because they are kind of boring compared to some of the others. I like 1 and 12 a lot, was 1 at 14mm?

    question on the 1.2 (50mm right?) Do you find it hard to focus with the normal focus screen on a DSLR?

    I love your post processing.

    What satration/vividness settings do you use in camera, what do you do in post?

    Love the shot of Abe in #11. How did you light up the lettering on the wall behind him? Was it PP?

    All the shots are great! :bigthumb:
