    Sorry it took so long to get back to you. The Bokeh is better, but I still think you either have motion blur or are not focused on the eyes. There is a way to put the focus spot on...

    I thought that might be the case. Tripod should help quite a bit. You also might look and see if there is a 135 or 200mm F:2.8 lens made for your camera. Used prime (as opposed to zoom lenses)...

    I agree that criminals should be punished. Unfortunately pillorying, flogging, and caning are considered by our "enlightened" society to be "cruel", so we are stuck with incarceration, which is very...
