    Lovely portrait. Beautiful the way you caught the light in her eyes.

    That is a cracking portrait Bill, beautifully lit.

    Absolutely sublime.
    Erika seems to be visiting us from a far gentler and serene world.

    it is somehow dichotmously hyperreal and like a painting. Beautiful use of light. The skin tones are what every portrait should aim for. More please.

    Erika is darling, as well as a beautiful young lady. Lovely light... Well done, indeed, Bill!

    Beautiful shot. And child! The 60mm is a great lens that, IMHO, got a lot more usable with the improved auto-focus on the XE2 and XT1.

    The 60 can be a bit frustrating on the X-pro1 Ray, just bought a new X-T1 hoping that it focuses more consistently as the results have amazed me when it does
