A pleasant smile he got and a very nice coloring for this close portrait using a short DOF to spot him totally out,very well captured.

Very nice and sharp portrait - he looks like an oil-sheik :-)
It looks like something is going to happen - like his face will open up..... - if you know what I mean.
Sorry for asking (I'm a REAL amateur) - but what is USM?

Cest une superbe portrait, mais je pense que tu l'as trop centré, autrement cest superbe.

Nice portrait, Steven! His eyes are very bright and reflect the outside world, as he sees it...Great moment you captured here.

I love those facial closes.
Do you usually ask for people to pose?
I imagine people would get shy
with a 200mm tele! Nice work with DOF!
