thanks for that. the exif data was removed for some reason i think it must have been when i resized them to put on the site. i am using a crop sensor so that may be the reason that the DOF isnt too flash.
i understand what you are saying with the pictures not being tight enough. with the melanie crisp photo it was in a crowded marketplace so there was always someone where you didnt want them 😛 but i can see how the white shirt takes away form the pic.
tighter cropping may have to be in order haha
