Great shot Erica. Did you use a filter to shoot it? Wonderful crispness to it. #2815721

Jane M 5/25/2006 8:25:45 PM

What great sharpness, colors and contrast! I'm jealous of your lenses :-)Is the cool DOF drop-off due to that lens or did you blur with PS? Great shot!! #2815886

Erica Murphy 5/25/2006 8:34:55 PM

Thanks Tamera & Jane! No filters or PS tricks. I use a shallow DOF on purpose to blur the BG. In PS I run a USM on all my photos and I did a curves adjustment that gave it a bit of contrast and pop.

I appreciate your kind words.
