Good sharp result with lots of contrast and decent B&W conversion.
Perhaps a little overdone, but the PP does suit the portrait.
Thanks for sharing.

I must say that this lens is pretty decent for portraits or main subjects but i find it pretty disapointing for landscape that's why i'm thinking of buying a higher grade lens like a Pentax 60-250mm f/4 or a Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8

Not too sharp at 300mm
