    Mine for today. I chose to not process this one in black and white to retain the yellow in the feet. Although you can see a black and white version here:

    Violating the rule of thirds at the immense doorway to the Pantheon in Rome. D800 & Sigma 50/1.4 @ 1.4
    Teach me something if you would. I understand the desire to shoot that lens wide open in order to take full advantage of a depth of field situation. Yet in this image Lupe and the door are essentially in the same focal plane, which renders the wider aperture and DOF effects somewhat moot. Why not shoot stopped down a touch (say f/5.6) and maximize the sharpness of the lens?

    Thanks.

    So it was a lightning issue as opposed to a composition issue. Understood. Thank you. Powerful image by the way.
