More photos from Florida.
What strikes me here, is the sheer quality and quantity of talent in this group. I wonder what percent of the population takes photograhy seriously and photographs. If only 1 % , then that means 60 million serious photographers even a tenth of a percent is 600,000 photogrphers all putting out 1000's of high quality images every year. It is a staggering thought. So much talent and so little of it seen, The drive to produce, to show, the drive is so strong, it is obviously not fame nor fortune, yet like a primal force of nature, a need like a tsunami wending its way through our world. Shouting "look at me" " I'm art" " recognize, acknowledge me," Jostling and marching for attention, millions of pictures a year, so much talent, it all just makes me wonder. Joe
in common. Encouraging each other and appreciating the vastly similar and different outlooks on life we share on this planet.
With all respect and humility; it is an honor to be a part of you all.
Thank you all for your nice comments.

And this is no bull!!
Life is an ever changing journey
The only drawback to using the Zeiss 100mm Makro-Planar f/2 as a portrait lens is its ability to record microdetails. Took me a while to get the skin/hair all cleared up in post.
LESSON HERE: prep your model before the shot to save time...
BTW, for the record, that is my daughters actual eye color.
