she is very pretty which comes off in the first pic. WB is towards blue a little bit. Nevertheless, very beautiful.

Yes, a bit warmer WB would make it even better. Beautiful girl, beautiful pics.

I know Asian girls (and therefore guys) tend to want their skin to look paler than it often is, so there is a tendency to over-expose a fraction (or cool WB) to achieve that look. However probably the natural skin-tone of this gorgeous girl is more akin to that in shot #4 and - as everyone else has said - therefore warming up the WB would improve the shots.

These are beautiful shots. #4 and then #1 are the best IMO - however the reflections from sand that caused those lines across her face may have been nullified with a little fill flash.

So, it's obvious there is a huge amount of PP here. Not demonstrative.

Love the first shot, however I can't decide if the hair in her eyes makes it look more natural or if it's a disrtction.

I will probable end up getting this lens. It is on my wish list. Anyone care do make a donation

Very nice images! I like the cool tone of the first one.

Do you still have your FA 77/1.8?

Could you, please, please, post comparison shots of the same scene done with the Sigma 85/1.4 vs FA 77/1.8? That would be awesome!

Nice shots, somehow a few (not all) shots seems to be not focused well. May be that's how you wanted then to be.
