Aperture: f/3.0 (at full zoom)
ISO: 200

The great grandfather of my son, called Bjossi. Took it at his sons birthday brunch. He was not aware that I was taking this shot (and still doesn't know...).

Was hoping this challenge would come after I bought my 10D (hopefully within a month), limiting DOF on a G3 isn't that great...

Did levels, sharpen and did my first burn (darken his left side a bit, he was sitting next to the window), no crop but some NeatImage.

This is great, I love the expression on his face, as if he is in deep concentration, the ability to capture a moment where expression is realistic is a true test of a photographer imo. I love the rose in the background. Good job

Nice portrait. Excellent facial details and skin color. The background is just not interesting enough for me, however.

If the photo had something with a soft focus in the foreground to indicate a 'Shallow Depth of Field' I would have given it another point. The title fits well though with the flower indicating the limited depth of field.

Not sure it would be considered a really shallow DOF shot, but regardless of that, it's a really great shot.

Doesn't really appeal to me. Sorry

Overall nice portrait, might be an improvement if this was more of a frontal shot, but I dunno, could go either way.
