I have a question regarding the depth of field at 1.8. Using my MF lens and the D90, it is impossible to get any sharp image at 1.8 using the 50mm prime that I have. On the other hand this fantastic image seems to have the person's face and her arms all in pretty good focus! I can't even keep the eyes and nose of a person in focus in the same image =/

What could be the reason?

The lighting is terrific and the simple placement of items in the frame really creates a nice closeness to the subject.

Very pleased to see this did well. Excellent composition, very well done conversion. I love the way the light reflects from the menu into her face.

great manual focus at 1.8! I like the hot highlights, without it you wouldn't get the bounced light back on her face.

This is a really interesting image. The composition with the contrasting forms of the artwork to the left, the ledge and chair to the right and the table. The lighting accentuates the girls hair and you can really see her expression and it leaves this interesting neutral quality leaning towards and calm sadness with the mood lighting. I like this a lot
