A simple flower, shot vertically (lens pointing down) with the 105VR macro lens used at f4.0 to get a shallow depth of field. Camera used: the good old D2x, the Nikon flagship a number of years ago.

A nice portrait I shot in Sénégal, in a local school... the colors make me think of the painting by Vermeer, the Girl with the pearl earring...
see here for instance:
Shot with the 70-200VR lens on the Nikon D3 camera. The lens has been used at 5.6 to blur the background and get enough depth of field on the face.
