This is Selina, who traveled from Europe for the 2011 Twin Peaks Festival.  If you haven't sensed a trend, I have been trawling my image archives looking for anything that I glossed over on the first (or second or third) look.

This is one of those images.  Shot with the venerable Nikkor 85mm ƒ1.4 D lens.  The only thing that would get me to give up this lens would be the newer AF-S version, if only for the focusing speed increase.  I suppose it has an optical edge as well, being years newer.  (advances in manufacturing and optical coatings, oh my)

Anyways, the picture.  Shooting this lens wide open leaves a very narrow window of opportunity for focus, so I tend to stop it all the way down to ƒ2 and sometimes (gasp) ƒ2.8.

The clarity and detail is pretty phenomenal even at these apertures.
