outstanding! a little faster shutter wouldn't have hurt, but you nailed the focus on his eye, which is where you want it to be in shots like this... well done!

Thanks Boily, Dennis, Squirl. Yes, Squirl, it would have been nice to get a faster shutter speed, but it was quite cloudy and dull outside. I had the ISO at 400, f/5.6 (which is wide open on my little lens), on aperture prority. Shutter speed ended up at 1/ 400. I like to keep the ISO at 400 or less. No noise to deal with then. Cheers..........thekman.
